Resignation Saga: Head Of Service Meets Adeosun

                                           Minister of finance, Kemi Adeosun

The embattled minister of finance, Kemi Adeosun, on Friday hosted Head of Service Winifred Oyo-Ita amidst speculations of her resignation, according to Daily Nigerian.
It was gathered that details of the meeting is not yet public but it might not be unconnected with the issue of her reported resignation.
Since news of her resignation surfaced, sources at the ministry have confirmed that the minister has been in office since 9am on Friday, receiving visitors.
“She has been in office today since 9am. She hosted Head of Service today and some other visitors who came for solidarity visit.
“Truly the atmosphere tells you all is not well, but we are surprised to see her in office discharging her duties,” said a source at the ministery.
According to the source, what appears unusual was the minister’s absence at this week’s Federal Executive Council Meeting at the State House.
“What is strange to us was her absence at FEC meeting on Wednesday. She chose to remain at home and receive visitors.
“Governors of Kebbi and Zamfara were all her residence on Wednesday. She came to office the following and today. The governor of Kebbi returned on Thursday and spent three hours in her office,” said the source.
The 51-year-old former minister is reported to have resigned following pressure arising from her questionable NYSC discharge certificate.
In November 2015, Adeosun was appointed Nigeria’s Minister of Finance by President Muhammadu Buhari.
Ms Adeosun was born in 1967 in London, England to Nigerian parents from Ogun State.
She earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Economics from the University of East London and a Postgraduate Diploma in Public Financial Management from the University of London.
She qualified as a Chartered Accountant with the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales in 1994 and she was qualified for NYSC exemption on return to Nigeria after clocking above 30 years of age.
The story has been out there that Adeosun forged her National Youth Service Corps, NYSC, discharge certificate.
Although she was above 30 when she returned to Nigeria, she was not qualified to obtain an exemption because she got her first degree when she was in her 20s.
The fake exemption certificate that she obtained through a third party was what caused her fall.
She initially ignored the forgery report, but her handlers later explained that she was not guilty.
They painted those digging into the story as mischief-makers who wanted to pull down a woman of substance.
The NYSC headquarters also came up with a terse statement that she indeed applied for an exemption and that it was looking into the matter.
Some citizens had dragged her to the Federal High Court in Abuja which has fixed October 8 to hear the suit asking it to sack her from office.
The Chief Judge of the high court, Abdul Abdu-Kafarati, assigned the suit marked FHC/ABJ/CS/712/2018, to Justice Ijeoma Ojukwu for expeditious hearing.
The suit was filed by Francis Obalim, a lawyer who approached the court, praying for an order quashing and setting aside Mrs. Adeosun’s appointment as a Minister of the Federal Republic of Nigeria,
Her appointment, he said, circumvented the condition precedent and in contravention of mandatory Sections 12, 13 and 14 of the NYSC Act which is an integral part of the 1999 Constitution, as amended.

Marriage: A school of learning, discovery

By Pastor Okokon Ating I have been enlightened that marriage is an insti-tution established by God which no student has gra-duated from. Once an in-dividual is able to obtain admission into this sch-ool, one keeps on learning till death. In the school of marriage every student is a novice. No matter how highly educated one is, he/she has a blank knowledge compared with the normal academic attainment.                                                   wedding ring
There are many mysteries embedded in marriage unknown to the unlearned heart. Couples do not know marriage but learn and study it. That is, cou-ples learn and study it when they come into the practical aspect of it. I came in contact with a young lady who was busy attending marriage semin-ars and reading several books on marriage. Atten-ding seminars and reading books on marriage are good, I told her; but where you can know and be pr-oud of living confidently in marriage is when you enter into the reality of marriage. This is w…
