However, in an update, an aide to the minister has insisted that the she has not resigned her position as earlier reported.
Daily Trust had said it did not have information about when Adeosun submitted her resignation letter
The source cited by the newspaper had said the resignation followed the allegation of not participating in the compulsory National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) and obtaining a certificate that the NYSC have disowned.
The minister, according to the report, had reportedly felt that her position is becoming untenable and is hurting President in Muhammadu Buhari in the run up to the 2019 election.
Earlier, NAIJ.com reported an anti-corruption group, Say No Campaign, called for probe into the certificate scandals involving Senator Ademola Adeleke and the minister of finance, Adeosun.
In a statement signed by its Co-convener, Ezenwa Nwagwu, the group said it has, through the legal instrument of the Freedom Of Information Act, written to the relevant authorities to respond to the allegations against the duo.
Nwagwu said there were obvious discrepancies in the two certificates presented by Senator Adeleke to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), stressing that the West African Examination Council (WAEC) needs to verify the authenticity of the result.
