Nigeria's finance minister has resigned over allegations she used a forged certificate to avoid the country's mandatory one-year youth service scheme.

In the letter to the President Buhari, the minister thanked him for the opportunity to serve and addressed the certificate forgery scandal which led to her resignation.

The minister felt that her position is becoming untenable and is hurting the President in the run up to the 2019 election.

She courted controversy again when she suspended and subsequently fired Mr Munir Gwarzo as the Director-General of the Nigerian Securities and Exchange Commission with Gwarzo challenging her powers to suspend him.

He also claimed he didn't take any of the profits for himself but didn't elaborate on where the money went. Mychal Kendricks was recently cut by the Cleveland Browns after being charged with insider training.

Her letter also revealed that she took the decision to resign after an internal investigation ordered by President Buhari declared the exemption certificate as fake.

She was later appointed Managing Director of Kaduna Investment Company. Adeosun did not comment on the claims initially, prompting criticism from her opponents. I was born and raised in the United Kingdom, indeed my parental family home remains in London. For me at my own end as the first son of the ministry, for now it's a no.

"Upon inquiry as to my status relating to NYSC, I was informed that due to my residency history and having exceeded the age of thirty (30), I was exempted from the requirement to serve". I then received the certificate in question.

"Our investigations reveal that the Federal Government, which earlier made efforts to defend Mrs. Adeosun, has already perfected a plot to help her to evade prosecution following fears that she could open up on the large corruption going on in the financial sector under the Buhari administration". Indeed, I presented that certificate at the 2011 Ogun State House of Assembly and in 2015 for Directorate of State Services (DSS) Clearance as well as to the National Assembly for screening.
