- The PDP has called for former minister of finance, Kemi Adeosun, to refund all salaries she was paid in the past
- Adeosun resigned over allegation of NYSC exemption certificate forgery
- The opposition party is also asking the former minister to return to Nigeria and face trial
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has called for the former minister of finance, Kemi Adeosun, to refund all the salaries paid to her since her time as a commissioner in Ogun state up to the day she resigned as minister.
The Punch reports that the national chairman of the PDP, Uche Secondus, stated this in an interview in Abuja on Sunday, September 16.
Secondus also called for the minister to name those who helped her in obtaining the fake certificate to enable the government to fish them out.
He said: “With the impunity that this government is known for, there is no way the minister would have resigned if not because we are in an election year.
"We expect the minister return all the money she had collected either as salaries or allowances before this scandal. She must calculate what she collected since her days as a commissioner in Ogun State up till the day she packed her belongings and left the ministry of finance and pay same to the coffers of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
“She must show Nigerians the teller with which she paid the money. This will enable Nigerians to know that she has done the needful.
“Also, we need to know the identities of those who helped her procure the fake NYSC discharged certificate. The government needs to clean the place of such characters.”
