Read Reactions That Trail Kemi Adesoun’s Resignation
Following the not so surprising resignation of the Finance Minister, Kemi Adeosun, reactions have begun to come over the genuineness and justification for her action.
While some Nigerians view it as long overdue considering the situation surrounding her resignation, some have exonerated her action as quite brave and heroic.
Reno Omokri Exonerates Adesoun, Others Defer
Kemi Adeosun, @HMKemiAdeosun, claims she did not know her @nysc_ng exemption certificate was forged and I believe her. I read her letter and it made sense. Ordinarily, I would have called for her prosecution, but this was a honest mistake and she shouldn’t be punished #RenosDarts

I'm OK with Kemi Adeosun's resignation and I feel sorry for her even though I wanted her to resign.
Woman did too much in a short time that treasury looters had to make sure dirt was dug up on her.
However, she just trod where many never dare to tread

We should stop romanticising Adeosun's resignation. There is nothing honourable about her resigning for an action that contravenes penal codes. Everyday she spent in office was a slap on the faces of millions that have served their country.

Let's forget abt Kemi Adeosun not doing the NYSC. She committed FORGERY, which is a criminal offence, for which everyday Nigerians go to jail every time. She only resigned after sustained pressure from us, and pple are praising her? Do you praise a thief who returns stolen goods?

On one same day
Yusuf Bichi replaces Matthew Seiyefa as DSS DG
Zainab Ahmed replaces Kemi Adeosun as Minister of Finance
I know we shouldn't be reading ethnicity into every appointment, but I just can't help it with Buhari…

"The (Kemi Adeosun's) sack was deliberately made public today to manage public backlash over the President’s decision to remove Matthew Seiyefa as DG of DSS to make way for Yusuf Magaji Bichi. Seiyefa hails from Bayelsa while Bichi is from Kano" – Sahara Reporters.
