Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chieftain, Chief Sunny Onuesoke, has condemned the stand of President Muhammadu Buhari, the Federal Government and members of the ruling All Progressives  Congress  (APC) while the controversy over exemption of  former Minister of Finance, Kemi Adeosun, from the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC),  lasted.


Onuesoke, who spoke to newsmen  in  Abuja yesterday accused Buhari of failing to suspend the Minister whilst investigating the matter.

He said a President that has been preaching against corruption would not have waited a minute before asking her to step aside whether he believes the allegation  was true or not.

“Rather, officials of Buhari’s government kept quiet for a while. When they finally responded they alluded to the fact that Adeosun would not be prosecuted for forging  NYSC  exemption  certificate because she is ‘damned good at her job’ and because ‘forgery is not corruption”, he added.

“To worsen it, the  Chairman of the Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption (PACAC), Prof Itse Sagay (SAN), said sacking Adeosun for certificate forgery was not an option. According to the SAN, Adeosun is a great asset to the country and letting her go because she doesn’t have a NYSC certificate  isn’t that serious. He also stated that he doesn’t believe Adeosun will fake an exemption certificate.”
