EX Minister Kemi Adeoye Talks About The CertificateGATE That Chased Her Out Nigeria + Says She Cried Every Day For 3 Months

Nigeria's former Minister of Finance, Mrs Kemi Adeosun, has come out to reveal how she was able to forge ahead after the National Youth Service Corps certificate saga which saw her resign and leave Nigeria.













She said she wept every day without working for three months.

Adesosun, who spoke at the 10th anniversary of the Uncommon Woman Conference organised by the Jesus House Church, United Kingdom, explained that she felt like she was in a horrible pit.

According to her, everything about her life was at a standstill while she had to deal with shame, betrayal, disappointment and humiliation.

Adeosun explained, “That period of life was tough for me. I went to step into the shoes of someone like Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala. So, I was under fire from day one, it looked like things were not working. Then all of a sudden,the economy started to improve. It was like I was beginning to see the desired result. Then out of nowhere, the certificate scandal came. And before I knew it, everything turned upside down. And that was how the issue went viral.”

Adeosun said it was sad that she was even unable to tell her side of the story and had to resign when she could no longer bear it.

The former minister said, “I was born and raised in the United Kingdom; indeed, my parental family home remains in London. My visits to Nigeria up until the age of 34 were holidays, with visas obtained in my UK passport. When I finished school, there was no opportunity for dual citizenship; I either renounce my British citizenship or hold on to it and work here. I didn’t renounce mine. I finished school at 21 and started working at 22.

  2. Serves her right. Pride comes before a fall. Life has a way of humbling people. Hopefully she’s learnt from it.

    1. Which fall? Na tears plenty for her eyes to cry na. I dont even think politics in Nigeria is for her,shes too soft. Its better it happened and she left.
      She had an impressive CV in UK and even in Nigeria before going into politics;she doesnt need to work for anyone again and probably will just be consulting now.
      Botton-line with her disgrace,she can NEVER lack. Her husband,kids are doing well,even if she decides to retire. UK she cant suffer,she will turn herself to motivational speaker and be givn talks in workshops and churches.

    8. She got an Exemption Certificate;cos she can NOT serve. She came to Nigeria as an adult. However her exemption certificate was fake. She probably just payed someone money as many people do and the person did not do the right thing. An exemption certificate is not hard to get so far you can prove the age you graduated and why you where out of this country. All she needed to do was write to NYSC and provide her certificates and reasons she cld not serve.
      How it all turned out being fake i have no idea.

    11. Even the children of the elite especially those who scream "INTEGRITY". how many of their children truly serve?- they serve from the abroad; come for orientation if at all, return to base with their parents sorting officials and at passing out, are in the country to snap photos wearing their uniform and collect certificate, so that no one will say they did not "serve" and return to base immediately until the right opportunity is available in the future . What of the ones that ensure their kids are posted to the right and key organizations? Adeosun was just naive as a "Nigerian", so they took advantage to blackmail her out. She is not the first or will be the last. The country is riddled with CORRUPTION and only God can redeem the land.

    4. For those whose first passport is Nigerian or some other country, not for UK citizens who want to add on another country back in the day. Similar to the case in Germany.

    5. Lol even now there’s no dual citizenship in USA
      You swear that you’ve dropped other citizenship when you become a citizen
      USA and other countries just look the other way most of the time
      However if you get a govt related position in the USA then they’ll insist you can’t have a Nigerian passport

      Delete
    6. There’s dual citizenship in the USA. U.K. born boss is now an American citizen. What’s that then?

      Delete
    7. 22:04 he swore an oath that he has dropped his uk citizenship
      It’s standard swearing in all us citizenship oath
      You say it with your mouth. They don’t bother you about your second passport most of the time

  8. They set her up, at least she is better than the Fulani thief that is currently there. Moreover Okonjo Iweala just gather all the degrees like me , she was outsourcing all her jobs to Indians . But Kemi got Nigerians to do the Job, as in America and the U.K. , it's jobs you need security pass. That is high level confidential positions should not be outsourced to other citizens. My prayer is Pdp fields Peter Obi, so he can help us block all avenue for stealing and restructure the country. We will know now, if PDP has really redefined themselves for progress, by who they give their presidential ticket.

    1. Anon 12.11 Well said. I’m not a fan of them but I honestly feel like people like Peter Obi, Tony Elumelu or someone like former CBN Governor Sanusi should be the next President of this great country with honey and milk but which unfortunately those greedy unpatriotic bastards has turned upside down. We need a very intelligent young person like French President (President Emmanuel Macron and Prime Minister of Canada (Justin Trudeau) to be the next President and not all these old sick men that cannot function without their defibrillators. Is sad what this country has become due to all these crazy selfish people

  14. Nigeria's system failed Kemi. She did not willingly or knowingly do anything wrong and comments about her show how desperate the average Nigerian is, especially when it comes to celebrating what may seem like someone's challenges or trying times.

    She had a sterling career in the UK and was headhunted by the Buhari administration. It is the job of the people who sought her out to make sure that her papers were straight knowing how their system is especially regarding the NYSC which is alien to the educational background of someone who didn't even carry a Nigerian passport. Overzealous aides trying to impress the incoming went to "obtain" a certificate of exemption in the Nigerian way they are used to since she knew of no transparent way to do it eg online. This is the same kind of hassle people go through when they need to obtain a NIN slip, driver's license, passport etc in Nigeria.

    I know how the already snail paced system grinds to a halt till you bribe especially if your documents show you obtained them out of Nigeria.

    People like Okonjo Iweala survived Nigeria because she learned to play ball. She would have gotten into trouble with those Dasuki dispatches had she not opted to write in emails that she was instructed by Jonathan to disburse those looted funds and because Dasuki, an old school criminal didn't have time-stamped written claims that roped in Jonathan, he's been in the net ever since. Okonjo Iweala had been bitten once during the OBJ years with a contract she worked for her brother. She escaped because of how it would have looked on the administration especially because Baba OBJ had already transferred her to external affairs despite her laudable efforts with debt cancellation in her previous ministry. It would have looked like witch-hunting. These are the things people only focused on gossip don't know.

    It is most likely that during the process of confirmation, consumate armed robbers/ legislators that played to the foolish Nigerians gallery as saviours and liberators, while lining their pockets, picked up on the clerical error of these aides and instead of summoning the DG of NYSC to scold him on how the certificate was obtained ( one which the named bearer did not even know to request) came out of the organization with pink slips handed out, they started to use it to blackmail a lady who saved this nation from a recession many of the simpletons roaming the internet have forgotten about. Cabal members knowing she had a problem also tried to use that to control her instead of sacking those involved in recruitment and improving the system.

    Rather than give into the sordid dance, she handed in her resignation to a president who really did not play a role as a leader to help launder her image even despite how obvious it is that this woman did nothing wrong but trust in the system manned by people who want God do frustrate their helpers into helping them but have no time to do their duty, earn their pay or do what is expected of them. They even go out of their way to blame the dead and aged for their problems but have no empathy for anyone roped into trouble.

    Nigeria happened to Kemi and luckily, she had a saner system to flee to and continues to rise unscathed. You who is rejoicing thinking, have you any buffers against the Nigerian wind or are you part of that wind, contributing nothing good to the system?

    2. 18:49, people whose God is their belly hold that unfortunate opinion. Immune to evidence and unable to present theirs, they continue to dig themselves deep into desperation and difficulty with the mindset of assuming the next person is a fellow glutton because they know no better. It is beyond them to think that someone who didn't even lobby for the job would leave the UK without the usual plate and cutlery they choose to carry about, ready to eat any poison, whether or not it is even offered. They are consumed by greed, being bottomless pits that can never know satisfaction. Enlightenment and healing is all one can wish such folks. Even from their comments, you know the road is long but with God, all things are possible.

    3. Anon 16:32 Kemi was in the know of what she was doing. Nigeria did not happen to her. As a Nigerian who graduated at age 21/22, she can serve even at age 40 provided she can proof she graduated before age 30. She wasn't qualified for exemption and should know that if she is well informed. Whose job is it to keep her well informed? Hers right? She should have done the right thing but I believe she went for the easiest way - a fake exemption letter.

      Delete
    4. Stop showing your ignorance,she qualifies for an exemption. Did Kemi graduate in Nigeria? Someone that just acquired Nigerian citizenship. She came into this country in her 40's and you expect her to wear khaki to serve then.
      How many 40 or 50 yr old have u seen in camp ?
      Foreign graduate serve but they are below 30. Kemi came into Nigeria in her 40s.

      Kemi is/was not qualified for exemption.
      20.47, Kemi who claims to be British suddenly now loves Nigeria more than Nigerians.
      We are not ready for this conversation, someone just went to meet her because she has Nigerian roots.
      She was just a pawn and she has been smeared
