Thirty two days after Premium Times, an online newspaper, broke the report of the Minister of Finance, Mrs Kemi Adeosun’s alleged forgery of her National Youth Service Corp [NYSC] exemption certificate, the accused [Adeosun] collapsed every communication channel to her office, went underground and never gave a response on the issue.
However, on Wednesday evening, the embattled minster finally returned to Twitter to share details of the Federal Executive Council (FEC) Meeting which held in Abuja today.
In her series of tweet, Adeosun listed some of the high-points at the FEC meeting but Nigerians from their reactions to the minister’s tweet, seem to be more interested in what she has to say on the NYSC certificate forgery allegation.
In less than three hours after the finance minister dropped her ‘come-back’ tweets, hundreds of netizens flooded her timeline with questions pertaining to her NYSC certificate scandal.
Here are some of the feedback sent to the minister on her Twitter page:
Hahahah madam certificate…. so you are still in office…… remember this govt is govt of integrity ooo

Adeosun had come under fire with several Nigerians, particularly on the social media, demanding investigations from the Federal Government into the allegations and calling for her resignation for presenting an alleged forged exemption certificate.
The reports claimed that the finance minister, who did not participate in the one-year national youth service, allegedly forged an Exemption Certificate several years after her graduation.
The certificate, which is dated September 2009, was reportedly signed by an NYSC Director-General, Yusuf Bomoi, who already left the scheme in January 2009.
