Premium Times and the Hatchet Job Against Kemi Adeosun
Once again poor and shoddy investigative journalism appears to be winning. This time the victim is Kemi Adeosun, Minister of Finance.
Premium Times a few days ago ‘broke’ news alleging that Mrs Adeosun presented a forged NYSC exemption certificate. The main evidence they had was that the certificate was signed by an NYSC DG who was no longer in office as at the date on the exemption certificate.
While it is true that the late Brigadier General Yusuf Bomoi left the NYSC in January 2009, we now know that several certificates issued after that date in 2009 still bore his signature.
Several people on social media have since shared photos of their certificates issued after January 2009 (when the late Brigadier General Yusuf Bomoi) handed over to Brigadier-General M.I. Tsiga as DG of the NYSC. Are all these certificates fake or forged as well?
The DG of the NYSC does not ‘hand-sign’ every certificate by himself, just as the CBN Governor does not physically sign every currency note. No human being can do that. The certificates are printed in bulk in advance, and then filled out with the name of the recipient and other details. Up till after Gen Bomoi left the NYSC certificates bearing his signature were being genuinely issued.
The truth, sadly, is that Premium Times has goofed again. This is not the first time they are publishing falsehood about Mrs Adeosun, falsehood for which they have never apologized, even when proved wrong. They keep allowing themselves to be used as a tool in the hands of people who want to undermine Mrs Adeosun and her work as Finance Minister.
As Mrs Adeosun’s predecessor as Finance Minister, Ngozi Okonjo Iweala wrote in her new book, ‘FIGHTING CORRUPTION IS DANGEROUS’, powerful and corrupt vested interests not only kidnapped her mother, but also made plans to physically hurt the Minister. “They asked my brother to tell me to announce on national television and radio that I was resigning from my job as Finance Minister and leaving the country.” Another time some powerful people humiliated her at the State House when she came visiting with the IMF President.
Now we are witnessing the same thing, and the victim this time is Mrs Kemi Adeosun. Corruption is fighting back, and Premium Times and other newspapers are allowing themselves to be used as tools, sadly.
Even when the NYSC issued a statement on the matter, acknowledging that the Minister indeed properly applied for an exemption, Premium Times chose a false and sensational and most unprofessional headline to report the news, alleging that the NYSC had ‘disowned’ the Minister, when what the NYSC did was the complete opposite of disowning her.
Let us avoid the rush to judgement. Mrs Adeosun is the victim of powerful enemies whose toes she has stepped upon in the battle to redeem Nigeria’s finances from the hands of ghost workers, tax evaders and other financial criminals. She will overcome, as she has always done.

These BMC are pathetic people, are you now the mouth piece of the person involved? She has not even acknowledged or denied this, she has been suspicuously silent fuelling the speculation.
Let her issue a statement regarding this situation then we take it up from there.
Her continued silence is seen as an affiemation to the rumour flying.

This is a very simple matter, aunty Kemi does not need a BMC zombie to defend her at all lailai. All she needs to do is to post the copy of the NYSC certificate with her in two or three national daily newspapers and online through her lawyers, busy bodies can then verify through the NYSC if what she has is original and if so, she can either tell Premium Times to take down their story and issue an apology or sue their assés for libel. At the end of the day, the ball is still in her court and not that of a zombie

LordTosan, the people's favourite punter breaks Nairaland winning streak record in just 3 days
It was yet another convincing win today for LordTosan, one of the finest punters in Nigeria. The Green punter recorded an historical 10 winning streak in just 3 days making him the punter with the fastest and longest winning streak on Nairaland so far.
Speaking with some of his customers today, LordTosan reiterated the fact that he is not a scammer who promises fixed matches but predict games like every sincere punter. He said he has for long been playing and winning his game alone privately. But decided to come public after his friends commented on his predicting prowess. He said his coming commercial was borne out of his desire to help bettors recover their loses and to help them enjoy a good betting experience while making extra cash through affordable fees for his services. Like he always says "Ashawo dey charge even though she dey enjoy the prick too"
He however disclaimed the rumour that he is infallible, stating that his games are not laced with black magic but rather a product of thought of careful observation. He recalled he has lost in the past and have lost once or twice recently. He ended by saying
"Until you see betting as an investment and not a lottery and start making good efforts to win, you will never break the banks"
LordTosan specialises on just 2 odds and is comfortable building from there and making cash. Check his signature to contact him.
Follow this link to see all of his winnings.
The people's favourite punter!

|Re: Premium Times And The Hatchet Job Against Kemi Adeosun by limitless101: 11:27pm On Jul 10|
It appears you're not getting the gist. She isn't qualified for an exemption! Applying was wrong ab-initio.
The Certificate was almost hurriedly prepared when she joined mainstream politics.
You should be the one getting your facts right. You just wrote a meaningless epistle which belittles your level of intellectualism.

The writer is also guilty of his/her own accusation. You accused Premium times of being hasty... Same as u, what don't u wait for the accused to at least clear the air?u accused premium times of sentiment yet ur sentiment is visible to the blind and audible to the deaf... U sound like a paid agent... U accused premium times of corruption fighting back... But you are arguably corrupt and also fighting back
Please let us not derail from the world cup

Because they use the man's signature doesn't mean it's not a forged certificate. Let NYSC come out clean. It doesn't take forever to verify that. Instead of them to answer the question being thrown at them, they were busy beaten the bush that she applied. Even if she applied but she wasn't qualified.

should Kemi go free, I would recommend mass boycott of NYSC by Nigerians in protest. We can't have different rules for some 'special Nigerians'
Meanwhile, Zombie OP, besides the fact that the certificate is fake, how did she get an exemption when she graduated before 30. APC will insult Ngozi Okonjo Iwealla when it suits them and use her quote to justify their incompetence and folly when it also suits them. Evil people

Ibos have wanked off 3 generations on this unsubstantiated allegations. When their sister Ngozi Okonjo Iweala who got to be finance minister because she was cheating on her husband with Obasanjo could not quote a figure over a million. The Harvard ponmo mouth quota system opportunist was the doofus of every table during her time and had billions stolen from Nigeria, yet she's still pretending to be more than what she is to the people she gave our money to and her people now bleating like goats asking Adeosun for the certificate she Ngozi Okonjo Iweala didn't have and nobody cared about.

How much was this writer paid for this? How convenient is it to discountenance only the signature part and ignore other aspects such as font size discrepancy, certificate non uniformity and most importantly her ineligibility to apply for exemption.
If u don't have anything else to say just use ur mouth and start blowing whistle naa Instead of defending the indefensible
|Re: Premium Times And The Hatchet Job Against Kemi Adeosun by InvertedHammer: 11:35pm On Jul 10|
NYSC said she applied for exemption.
But she was 22 years at graduation. How possible?
Then there is a certificate of completion. Did she serve? Where? Who were her service mates? If not, where did the certificate come from?
The certificate is secondary. Did she serve or was she exempted?
|Re: Premium Times And The Hatchet Job Against Kemi Adeosun by donbenie(m): 11:36pm On Jul 10|
obowunmi:Really?..How did someone exempted from NYSC end up with a Corper Uniform as a proof of not being a FRAUD?
And how did it take her TWENTY YEARS for her to get an exemption letter?
|Re: Premium Times And The Hatchet Job Against Kemi Adeosun by echelons(m): 11:38pm On Jul 10|
How's does her forgery have anything to do with Ngozi Okonjo Iweala.
She should dance her shameful dance alone.
I did my NYSC, spent my one year in the villages of Edo state passing knowledge to younger ones, hoping that allawi go come or that Oshiomhole will change his mind and add extra to us for survival, we did this to obey that Clarion call, yet one mofo will skip the assignment, come back to Nigeria, forge the certificate and start living off the government as if she's born differently. And some God-forsaken folks will come and be writing half backed nonsense trying to defend it.
I paid my dues, she didn't and so doesn't deserve any accolades.

We should not get distracted because the focus should be was the discharge certificate originally given to her be NYSC or not?
