A lawyer, Francis Obalim has filed a suit asking the Federal High Court, Abuja, to order the sack of the Minister of Finance, Mrs Kemi Adeosun following the ongoing NYSC certificate scandal rocking the minister.
In a similar fashion, the Action Peoples Party, APP, has also filed a suit before the Federal High Court, Abuja, demanding the sack of the Minister.
Among the defendants in the APP suit marked FHC/ABJ/CS/714/2018 were President Muhammadu Buhari; the Attorney General of the Federation, AGF and the Independent Corrupt Practices and other related Offences Commission.
The party called that FG immediately sacks the minister and order her to refund all the salaries she has received prior to the scandal.
On the other hand, Obalim, in the suit marked FHC/ ABJ / CS / 712/ 2018, applied for an order quashing and setting aside Adeosun’s appointment as a minister of the Federal Republic of Nigeria by President Muhammadu Buhari.
Meanwhile, photos of the minister rocking an NYSC uniform have surfaced online, although a lot of people believe there were photoshopped.
While the photos sparked endless debates, some people dismissed the certificate scandal as the handiwork of the Minister's traducers.
