Bishop Says You’re Committing Sin If You Charge Phones In Church

A bishop, Michael Osagie, the General Overseer of Bible Believers Ministry, says fighting over charging points in church is a sin “and against the laws of the church’’.

Mr Michael made this known in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Tuesday at the Bible Believers Ministry in Oluku, Benin.

He condemned the attitude of charging phones, note pads, touch lights amongst others, while church service was going, saying it was a major distraction to the preacher.

“Sometimes when I preach on the altar, I get distracted, because I see some of my members fighting over charging points.

“Am I amazed how believers of the gospel take the things of the Lord these days,’’ he said.

The cleric pleaded with the Edo government and the Benin Electricity Distribution Company to look into the poor power supply in the state with the view of improving it.

Reacting to the preacher’s insinuation, Ruth Ikoko, an usher of the church said that she was guilty of the sin as her area had serious electricity problem.

She said that she came to church regularly to charge her phone and to also worship the Lord.

Ms Ikoko expressed the hope that the power situation would improve in her area so that she would stop charging her phone in the church. (NAN)

Boko Haram Murders Nurse, Threatens To Kill Leah Sharibu

A faction of the dreaded Islamic sect Boko Haram – the Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP) – has killed one of the health workers kidnapped from Kala-Balge, Borno State, Saifura Khorsa – a midwife with the International Committee of Red Cross.

Shortly after murdering the humanitarian worker, the sect also threatened to kill Hauwa Liman and Alice Ngaddah who were abducted alongside Khorsa in March, 2018, as well as Leah Sharibu, the remaining Dapchi schoolgirl in Boko Haram captivity.

Boko Haram Fighters Ambush Nigerian Soldiers In Bama

According to The Cable, the deceased who was wearing a white hijab was shot from behind.

The news outlet also reported that the insurgents claimed that they had contacted the government over the captives but did not get any response.

“We contacted the government through writing and also sent audio messages but the government has ignored us. So, here is a message of blood,” said a spokesman of the group who did not give his name.

“The other nurse and midwife will be executed in a similar manner in one month, including Leah Sharibu,” the sect threatened.

At least four soldiers, policemen and three humanitarian workers were killed in the attack in Rann, Kala-Balge Local Government Area.

In its earlier statement, the Red Cross said two aide workers were still with Boko Haram.

At the time of their abduction, Saifura – as well as her other colleagues – a nurse working in a UNICEF-supported centre, were providing essential antenatal care to communities in Rann, whose population has more than doubled after an influx of people fleeing the violence, the agency said.

“We urge those still holding our colleague Hauwa and Alice: release these women. Like Saifura, they are not part of the fight. They are a midwife and a nurse. They are daughters, a wife, and a mother – women with families that depend on them.”

In his reaction to the murder of the Red Cross staff, President Muhammadu Buhari said:

“The government of Nigeria strongly condemns this reprehensible and inhuman act. No religion permits the killing of the innocent. Saifura worked for the Red Cross, a humanitarian organization tirelessly working to bring succor to all the victims of violence irrespective of the sides of the conflict.”

The president sent out an appeal to Nigeria’s international partners and about everyone with an influence on the terrorists to prevail on them “to stop these acts of extreme barbarism.”

Mr Buhari further assured that his administration will seize every given opportunity with both hands and use all means available to bring home all citizens held against their will by the Boko Haram terrorists.

“On behalf of his family, the government and people of Nigeria, President Buhari extended condolences to the family of Saifura, the Red Red Cross and UNICEF over the loss of this selfless and hardworking mother,” Mr Shehu said.

Drama As Ambode Rushes To Tinubu For Photos At Jim Ovia’s Book Launch

A mild drama played out on Monday, September 17, during the launch of ‘Africa Rise and Shine’, a book by Jim Ovia, chairman of Zenith Bank, as Governor of Lagos State, Akinwunmi Ambode rushed to take photograph with his estranged godfather, Bola Tinubu, national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

‘Who Am I To Speak After Jagaban?’ —Ambode Acknowledges Tinubu At Launch Of Jim Ovia’s Book

As the event was winding down to a close, the Master of Ceremonies invited the state governors present at the occasion and other dignitaries to the podium to take photos with a large copy of the book and the author.

Aside the former and current governors of Lagos state, dignitaries that gathered on the podium for the group photos included Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo; Governor of Delta State, Ifeanyi Okowa; Governor of Borno, Kashim Shettima; Dr Christopher Kolade, among others.

Ambode earlier stood in between Messrs Ovia and Kolade, but as photo journalists started taking shots, the Lagos governor jogged past Ovia, Osinbajo to squeeze himself in between Tinubu and a woman on his estranged godfather’s left side.

The scene elicited cheers, laughter and applause from those on the podium and many other guests.

Ambode ‘In Trouble’ As Femi Otedola ‘Accepts’ Lagos PDP Governorship Ticket

Bear in mind that Ambode had earlier acknowledged the political prowess of his godfather, who is fondly referred to as ‘The Jagaban’ by admirers, stating that he was not prepared to give a speech.

“Actually, I didn’t prepare to come and say anything here. And who am I to speak after the Jagaban has spoken?” he asked.

Although he has consistently denied it, Ambode’s relationship with Tinubu is strained, culminating in the latter’s decision to back Jide Sanwo-Olu for the All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship ticket.

Sacked Workers Get N86.7Billion From PenCom

Featured Image

PenCom releases N86.7bn to over 275,000 sacked workers

The National Pension Commission (PenCom) said it had released N86.7 billion to sacked workers of various companies who participated in the Contributory Pension Scheme.

Acting Director-General, PenCom, Mrs Aisha Dahir-Umar, who disclosed this on Monday in Lagos, said the amount was for the settlement of 275,172 disengaged workers.

She said the figure represented the total paid from 2004, when the CPS came into effect, to June 2018.

Dahir-Umar also said the amount was about one per cent of the N8.23 trillion pension assets.

The acting director-general noted that loss of jobs in both public and private sectors have been on the rise since the recession because employers want to control expenses.

She said in order to fulfil its promise, the commission had allowed the sacked workers access 25 per cent of their pension contributions, especially if they were unable to get new jobs.

“The lean prospect of finding a new job after the loss of an earlier job was responsible for increase in demand to access 25 per cent of pension contributions.

“The PRA 2014 allows contributors, under the age of 50 years, who were disengaged from work and were unable to secure another job within four months of disengagement, to access 25 per cent of their respective Retirement Savings Accounts.

“The commission also recently reduced the assessment time after disengagement to four months from six months,” Dahir-Umar said.

The acting director-general said in the second quarter of 2018 about 12,854 workers have been disengaged.

She, however, said the disengaged workers have been able to access N5.6 billion from the pension assets within the timeframe.

“Of the entire disengaged workers who accessed their pension contributions, about 93 per cent were from the private sector.

“Some of the beneficiaries invested the money in business ideas in order to be self-employed.

“Others used it to meet their more immediate financial needs,” she said.

‘Who Am I To Speak After Jagaban?’ — Says Ambode At Launch Of Jim Ovia’s Book

Governor Akinwunmi Ambode of Lagos State left the audience laughing after he acknowledged Bola Tinubu, a National leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), with a light-hearted remark, during the launch of ‘Africa Rise and Shine’, a book by Jim Ovia.

Tinubu and Ambode were guests at the launch of ‘Africa, Rise and Shine’; a book written by Jim Ovia, businessman and founder of Zenith bank.

At the ongoing event at the Eko Hotel Convention Centre, Lagos, Ambode was invited to speak immediately after Tinubu and the former acknowledged the political prowess of APC godfather, who is fondly referred to as ‘The Jagaban’ by admirers.

Upon mounting the podium, Ambode acknowledged the dignitaries, saying he was not prepared to give a speech.

“Actually, I didn’t prepare to come and say anything here… And who am I to speak after the Jagaban has spoken?’ Ambode asked.

The duo are reportedly not the best of friends in recent weeks.

This is after the former governor had indicated his support for former Commissioner, Mr. Babajide Sanwoolu, for the office of Governor of Lagos; with Ambode eyeing a second stint in office in 2019.

Banks To Pay N10,000 Fine If Money Transfer Exceeds 4 Minutes – CBN

The Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) has released stiff regulations that would henceforth make it compulsory for deposit money banks and other financial service providers in the country to return failed transactions into the account of its customer under the Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) within 10 minutes or face severe sanctions.

Nigerian Prophet Reveals Who Will Defeat Buhari In 2019

In one of the regulations, the apex bank stated that delayed application of inward NIP into beneficiary’s accounts beyond four minutes would attract a penalty fee of N10,000 per item.

It made this known in a circular, ‘Circular on the regulation on instant inter-bank electronic funds transfer services in Nigeria’ issued to all deposit money banks, microfinance banks, other financial institutions, mobile money operators, development finance institutions, payment service providers and other stakeholders.

The CBN stated, “The sanctions above and any other prescribed in the Nigeria Bankers’ Clearing System rules or any amendment thereto, shall apply.”

An electronic funds transfer or an NIP, according to the apex bank, happens between two distinct entities when delivery from the sending entity to the receiving entity takes place within one minute (60 seconds), while a payments system where delivery to the receiving entity occurs beyond one minute is considered to be an ACH system.

The bank said any failed instant payment transaction not reversed into the customer’s account within 24 hours, based on the complaint of the sender and/or beneficiary will attract a fine of N10,000.

According to the letter signed by ‘Dipo Fatokun, CBN’s director, banking and payments system department, the regulation will be effective from October 2, 2019.

According to the document, on an occasion where a sending entity erroneously sends value contrary to the customer’s instructions due to wrong account number, wrong amount, duplication among others to a receiving entity and requested the reversal in writing within 14 working days of the transaction, the receiving entity should oblige within one business day without recourse to the customer (beneficiary) of the receiving entity provided funds are available.

An automatic indemnity would be inferred against the sending entity making the reversal request.

“MFM General Overseer Dr Dk Olukoya Did Not Send Me To Sowore For Any Reason” – Dr Akinloye

Featured Image
The General Overseer of the Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministry, Dr DK Olukoya was alleged to have offered to fund the presidential campaign of Sahara Reporters publisher, Omoyele Sowore in the upcoming 2019 general elections. These allegations have been strongly denied.

According to a member of the church, Dr Aaron Akinloye, Dr Olukoya did not send him to Sowore, for any reason. In a recent video that has been circulating for some days now, Sowore was seen addressing a group of people with wrong information on a Maryland US lawsuit that had been won by MFM in a US court, further more claiming that the MFM general overseer sent someone to him for a meeting, as well as offered to bankroll his political ambition.

Dr Akinloye who met with Sowore claims the meeting was about more private matters and he was in no position to undertake the alleged assignment. Akinloye took to nairaland to refute these claims, ‘’I Dr Aaron Akinloye have never said that the General Overseer sent me to you. You would recall that we were talking about UNILAG Alumni when you showed interest in the development of the school. Please, be very careful with the way you spread unconfirmed news. Mr Sowore, let me ask you, on what capacity would the G.O have sent me to you? I am not his media person. Please, be careful the way you are going about this.”

To further exonerate himself from Mr Sowore’s allegation, Dr Akinloye added, “In fact, Sowore needs help. He needs plenty of prayers. Does he think he can sit down somewhere and begin to confuse the whole world? People that know him should call him to order. Somebody who said he was ready to confess his sins before the man of God. Sowore, we know your history while in Unilag anyways. I am not surprised. Why am I even disturbing myself over your cantankerous attitude?”

He added that Sowore’s claims that Dr D.K Olukoya offering to finance his political campaign was a mere media stunt to get attention, stating that the G.O neither gets involved in politics nor does he know about Sowore’s political ambition. “Sowore what is your problem? When did I tell you that the General Overseer of Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries would like to finance your campaign? You must be out of your mind. The man of God who doesn’t get involved in politics. Does he even know that you are contesting for anything? If you are looking for attention, you won’t get it. I strongly advise you to desist from your antics, particularly the way you are dragging me into this mess. If you fail to desist from slandering my name, I will take a legal action against you.”

EFCC Finally Reacts To ‘Freezing Of Davido, Adeleke’s Bank Accounts’

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has finally reacted to reports making the rounds on the internet that it has frozen the accounts of musician, David Adeleke, aka Davido and that of his uncle, Ademola Adeleke.

Nigerians React As EFCC ‘Freezes’ Davido’s Bank Account

In a statement issued on Sunday by its spokesman, Wilson Uwujaren, the commission said there was no truth in the claims being circulated by the Peoples Democratic Party and some politically motivated elements.

The statement read, “The attention of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC has been drawn to media publications alleging that it had frozen the account of Senator Ademola Adeleke, candidate of the opposition People’s Democratic Party, PDP, in the September 22, 2018 Osun State governorship election and those of his family members, including the musician, David Adeleke.

“The Commission calls on members the public to disregard the report, which is patently false and contrived to dress the agency with a partisan garb in the unfolding political contest in Osun State.

“For the avoidance of doubt, at no time did the EFCC place a freeze order on any account belonging to members of the Adeleke family.

“The purported freeze order which has unfortunately been amplified by pliable sections of the media without any attempt at confirmation is alien to the Commission and another example of fake news.

“The EFCC frowns at the seeming attempts by faceless forces to drag it into the political fray and, for the umpteenth time, restates its neutrality as a law enforcement organization that is sworn to uphold the law at all times, irrespective whose interest is at stake.”

EFCC Blasts UK Bank HSBC For Predicting Buhari’s Failure

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has slammed HSBC, a prominent bank in the UK, days after it predicted that Nigeria’s current economic struggles look set to continue if President Muhammadu Buhari wins a second term in office.

According to a recent report, the bank predicted that if the President wins his second term bid, it would “stunt the economy”.

Nigerian Prophet Reveals Who Will Defeat Buhari In 2019

The bank had said a second term for Mr Buhari “raises the risk of limited economic progress and further fiscal deterioration, prolonging the stagnation of his first term, particularly if there is no move towards completing reform of the exchange rate system or fiscal adjustments that diversify government revenues away from oil.”

However, the senior special assistant to the president on media and publicity, Garba Shehu, on Saturday criticised the HSBC report, also accusing the bank of money laundering, with emphasis on $100 million Abacha Loot.

Also, in a post titled ‘The Story of HSBC’, the anti-graft agency listed similar allegations made by Shehu.

EFCC Orders Customs To Monitor Fayose – Arrest Him If He Tries To Flee Nigeria

The anti-graft agency took to its social media accounts to say that the multinational banking group, which is Europe’s largest by total asset, was synonymous with money laundering.

The EFCC said it will not “rest on its oars” till all the funds allegedly in possession of the bank are repatriated back to Nigeria.

“HSBC Bank plc is one of the largest banking and financial services organisations in the world. HSBC’s international network comprises around 7,500 offices in over 80 countries and territories in Europe, the Asia-Pacific region, the Americas, the Middle East and Africa,” the post read.

“Since inception, HSBC is synonymous with money laundering and has paid billions of US Dollars in fines across the world.

“In Nigeria, the bank laundered more than $100 million for the late dictator, late Gen Sani Abacha in Jersey, Paris, London, Switzerland and Geneva. The Bank is also involved with laundering proceeds of corruption for over 50 Nigerians including a Nigerian serving Senator.

“Part of Abacha Assets yet to be recovered are: $12 million in HSBC Fund Admin Ltd with account number S-104460 in Jersey; $20 million in HSBC Life (Europe) with account number 37060762 in U.K and $1. 6 million in HSBC Bank plc with account number 38175076 in U. K.

“We shall not rest on our oars until every penny belonging to the FRN is repatriated to Nigeria as to improve the lives of the people.”

In an interview with Daily Sun, the cleric said:

“Saraki will rule for just four years and put the country in order. I am talking as a prophet of God. I said in 2015 that so many things will happen in Buhari administration and it happened. If PDP puts their house in order; that is what will defeat any party. If PDP wants to do well, let them be united, and know what they are doing and do the right thing. I don’t belong to any party.”

 “I am not giving any opinion; there is poverty everywhere and because of this, people will vote against their conscience because this is the election of the highest bidder. People will not want to vote for the people they want, but they will vote for a temporal bail out, and that will not settle the case.”

On the spate of defection in Nigeria’s political scene, Primate Ayodele said:

“Most people who are defecting will still land in jail because judgment is coming to all Nigerian leaders. Those who are defecting now are not seeing the consequences ahead of them. The forefathers of this nation are not asleep; they want to revenge, we have done a lot of blood sacrifice and that is why things are happening like this. It is politics everywhere. They are just doing packaging; nobody is talking about anything that is happening to Nigerians, or how they feel.”

EFCC Orders Customs To Monitor Fayose – Arrest Him If He Tries To Flee Nigeria

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has directed the Nigeria customs service to place Ayodele Fayose, outgoing governor of Ekiti, on its watch list.

While the governor is being investigated by the EFCC for alleged abuse of office, money laundering, among others, his tenure ends on October 16.

Scared Of Jail? Kemi Adeosun Departs Nigeria

In a letter dated September 12, and addressed to the comptroller-general of customs, the anti-corruption agency asked the customs to beam its searchlight on Fayose, saying he may be planning to flee the country.

EFCC Orders Customs To Monitor FayoseThe letter which was signed by the Acting Chairman of the EFCC, Ibrahim Magu, read in parts:

Request for Watch-Listing of Persons.

Case Of Conspiracy, ABUSE OF OFFICE, CORRUPTION, THEFT AND Money Laundering

The under listed suspect is under investigation in connection with the above mentioned offences and there is a reasonable suspicion suggesting that he may likely leave the country either through the land borders, airports or seaports in order to evade investigation. Hence, you are kindly requested to watch-list him and arrest him.”

EFCC Orders Customs To Monitor FayoseReacting to the directive, the customs instructed all zonal coordinators, area commanders and comptrollers to monitor Fayose.

“Consequently, you are requested to monitor the subject and report to Economic and Financial Crimes Commission through the provided contact details if sighted,” the customs wrote in a letter dated September 14.

Bear in mind that the governor had last week written the Commission, telling it that he will surrender himself to the agency on Tuesday, October 16, 2018.

Fayose has been in a battle of wits with the anti-graft agency and had also been in and out of courts with the commission over his personal and state’s finances.

He is expected to hand over government to Dr Kayode Fayemi, when he completes his tenure on October 16.

Nigeria Prepares To Recruit 5,000 Unemployed Nigerians for BRISIN implementation

The Federal Government has disclosed plans to recruit 5,000 unemployed Nigerians in the Federal Capital Territory under the Basic Registry and Information System in Nigeria  scheme.

Dr Anthony Uwa, the Head of BRISIN implementation in Nigeria, told the News Agency of Nigeria on Sunday in Abuja that more Nigerians would be recruited after the pilot phase.

NAN reports that BRISIN is an integrated system for the collection, storage and distribution of information to support the management of the economy.

Uwa said the system aimed at bringing developmental and economic growth in the country through the use of data collection of people and other relevant information.

“The data received will be used to plan for the management of the nation’s resources,’’ he said.

NAN reports that the project was initiated by the President Olusegun Obasanjo administration, while the Goodluck Jonathan’s administration inaugurated a Technical Committee for its implementation.

According to Uwa, since BRISIN covers all aspect of the economy, the recruitment is not restricted to a particular field or discipline.

He however, said the implementation would commence with the social welfare, an aspect of the project, with special attention to disability data bank.

“We are giving attention to social welfare and building the disability data bank to attain the actual number of disabled people in the FCT.

“We are recruiting 5,000 people out of which 200 will be sent to Italy for training on various aspect of the project and they will be the trainees’ trainers.

“They will be trained mainly on the use of data on every aspect of economic management with attention to health, education, economic monitoring, fiscal and revenue control, migration and human trafficking.

“BRISIN recruitment cuts across all cadres, from school certificate to PHD holders so the recruitment is not restricted.

“The recruitment will be published on e-transact by next week, the portal will be opened for about six weeks and the public will be sensitised on how to access and fill the form through the portal.

“Also, the 5000 people we are recruiting does not mark the end of BRISIN recruitment but just a pilot phase, as we start from FCT we will train those to work in other states,’’ Uwa said.

On the funding, he said a budget had already been allocated to the project but being as it was small, a BRISIN international Foundation was established to help source fund to supplement government effort.

“The budget is small so we have to look for donors from well-meaning Nigerians, corporate organisations and international donors so we do not depend on government funds alone.

“With this foundation, we want to see those claiming to love Nigeria come and donate generously to the implementation.

“When this is fully implemented, it will reduce the risk of Nigerians that engage on illegal migration, so this foundation is as important as BRISIN itself.

He urged Nigerians not to consider the move as a political affair being that it was an election year, but see it as a dream come true for Nigeria to attain the height it ought to have regarding job availability.

According to him, considering the economic monitoring, a lot of people will be involved, so it will create jobs and also a multiplying effect of job creation in the nation.

INEC ‘Bans Use Of Mobile Phones In Polling Units’

INEC ‘Bans Use Of Mobile Phones In Polling Units’

The Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Mahmood Yakubu, has reportedly banned the use of mobile phones by voters and other duty officials at polling units during elections, beginning with the September 22 governorship elections in Osun State.

Nigerian Guardian quoted the Chairman of the commission, Prof. Mahmud Yakubu, as saying that the decision was a deliberate measure to put a stop to the menace of vote buying, which he said was threatening the country’s democracy.

Speaking at a sensitisation event on Friday in Abuja, Yakubu said:

“In most cases, you see people vote and snap the ballot paper to show to party agents that they have voted as evidence to be paid.” This, he said, can no longer be tolerated.”

Premium Times also reported that he said mobile phones would be collected from voters when they collect their ballot papers at the polling stations, to curb vote buying in the country.

”The commission would try and ban the use of some devices that aid vote buying on election day such as mobile phones,” Mr Yakubu said

”It is all widespread that for those who have smart phones, they go into the voting cubicles with there smart phones, thumbprint the ballot paper, take a picture with the ballot paper, fold it and drop it into the box, and later show it to the person who asked them to vote to see evidence that they have voted for there candidate.

”But I also think that the political parties may be for a shocker because there are also smart guys in Nigeria that would snap and send to others through whatsapp and one ballot paper may be claimed by hundreds of people,” he added.

”We are looking at that possibility to tell citizens that have smart phones not to come to polling units on election day with the smart phones.”

He assured that INEC would use the Osun State governorship election as a test case against vote-buying, vowing to partner with the security agencies to make arrests and prosecute defaulters to serve as a deterrent to others.

Nigerians React As EFCC ‘Freezes’ Davido’s Bank Account

Nigerians React As EFCC ‘Freezes’ Davido’s Bank Account

Nigerians have begun to react after a rumour swirled that one of the bank accounts of Davido has been frozen by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

The allegation was made by a Twitter account belonging to @PDP_2019 on Friday, September 14, 2018.

“EFCC freezes 7 different bank account of the Adeleke family (IsiakaAdeleke1 PDP gubernatorial Candidate’s family) including that of iam_Davido and his multi billionaire dad,” the tweet reads.

The singer also responded to the allegation without denying or clearly stating that it was seized.

“”Make dem go Wells Fargo for ATL na,” he wrote in response to a fan’s tweet about the account frozen allegation.

In another tweet, Davido wrote, “God dey, OBO dey!!’

Confirming this, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to direct the EFCC to immediately unfreeze the private bank accounts of its governorship candidate, Senator Ademola Adeleke, in the Osun State election, and those of his family members, including singer.

The party described the freezing of the accounts as oppressive, tyrannical, provocative and a direct recipe for crisis in the state, given that the people of Osun are solidly behind Adeleke ahead of the election.

National Publicity Secretary of the party, Mr. Kola Ologbondiyan, in a statement in Abuja on Saturday, said the freezing of the Adelekes’ accounts by an agency of the All Progressives Congress-led Federal Government, a week to the governorship election, underscored the fact that the APC ” is mortally afraid of our candidate and has been seeking ways to undermine his electoral fortunes.”

He added, “Such savage attack on innocent citizens confirms the viciousness of the Buhari-led APC administration to use any means whatsoever to subjugate Nigerians and appropriate power to itself at all cost.

Meanwhile, some Nigerians have been reacting to the news:

Here Are 5 Reasons Kemi Adeosun Could Be Jailed For 14 Years Over NYSC Scam

A lawyer has analyzed how Kemi Adeosun, who yesterday resigned from her juicy position as Nigeria’s Minister of Finance, on account of forging a certificate of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), now risks being thrown in jail for as long as 14 years.

Mrs Adeosun’s certificate scandal was first brought to light by Premium Times in a July 7 story which detailed how the minister skipped the mandatory national service and forged an exemption certificate to cover for it.

REVEALED: How Nigeria’s Finance Minister Kemi Adeosun “Skipped NYSC, Forged Exemption Certificate”

The year-long service, organised by the NYSC is compulsory for all Nigerians who graduate from a university or equivalent institution at the age of 30 or below.

The news outlet has quoted a lawyer, Shuaibu Sule, as listing five offences he said the minister is liable for.

The offences include forgery, possession of fake document, uttering, giving false information and skipping the national service.

It is understood that they carry jail terms of between one to 14 years, according to the Penal Code Law and the National Youth Service (NYSC) Act.

CONFIRMED: Buhari Accepts Adeosun’s Resignation, Appoints Zainab Ahmed As New Finance Minister

On Friday, the Presidency announced her resignation from office, and released the resignation letter in which Mrs Adeosun owned up to the crime. She said she was “helped” by some unnamed associates to get the exemption certificate.

“Her resignation should not be the end of it. She should be investigated and prosecuted for committing a number of crimes,” Mr Sule also told the online newspaper on Saturday morning.

The newspaper continued:

The lawyer said Mrs Adeosun could be charged for offences under Section 140 of the Penal Code, which borders on giving false information and attracts up to one year prison term and/or fine.

What The Law Says

The penal code operates in the northern part of Nigeria, including Abuja. While Mrs Adeosun is from Ogun in the south, lawyers say the law would apply as the offence was committed in Abuja.

Sections 364 and 368 of the same law, according to Mr Sule, provides for up to 14 years in jail for faking a document and being in possessing of fake documents. They also have provision for fine that could go either as complement of substitution for jail term.

Mr Sule said the former minister is equally liable for uttering – presenting fake document as genuine, which could, on conviction, could attract maximum jail term of 14 years, as provided for in Section 366 of the law.

Eligible Nigerians who skipped the service are liable to be sentenced to 12 months imprisonment and/or N2,000 fine, according to the section 13 of the NYSC law.

Section 13 (3) of the law also prescribes 3-year jail term or option of N5,000 fine for anyone who contravenes provision of the law, as Mrs Adeosun is alleged to have.

Subsection 4 of the same section also criminalises giving false information or illegally obtaining the Service’s certificate. It provides for up to three year jail term for such offenders.

The lawyer said a level playing field should be provided to bring the former minister to justice.
