Finance Minister, Kemi Adeosun remained in office on Friday amidst reports of her resignation.
There was anxiety at the ministry as journalists thronged to confirm the authenticity of the alleged resignation.
At about 12 noon, journalists started trooping into the ministry to confirm the story, but all staff of the minister were seen around her office going about their duties saying that “another round of fake news” was circulating.
To prove that she was in her office and still on her seat working, her staff did not stop any journalist from coming to the 7th floor where the minister’s office is situated.
Though her media aides did not come on record to speak to the press, they allowed journalists to see the Minister’s car port to confirm that she was on seat and has not resigned.
The confusion over her alleged resignation was heightened by her absence at the Meeting of the Convergence Council of Ministers and Governors of Central Bank of West African Monetary Zone where she was represented by the Permanent Secretary Dr. Mahmood Isa Dutse.
It was alleged that Kemi Adeosun had resigned under pressure over controversies surrounding her NYSC certificate, but there was no confirmation yet as at the time of this report.
