Zainab Ahmed takes over Finance Ministry after Adeosun’s exit
The minister of State Budget and National Planning, Mrs Zainab Ahmed, has been asked to oversee the Ministry of Finance, henceforth.
The appointment was announced by President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday, after accepting the resignation of Mrs Kemi Adeosun.
The President thanked the Minister for her services to the nation and wished her well in her future pursuits.
Mrs Ahmed was born in Kaduna State. She got her first degree in Accounting from Ahmadu Bello University in 1981, after-which she proceeded to Ogun State University for her MBA.
Adeosun bowed out after an allegation by the online newspaper, Premium Times, that she presented a fake NYSC exemption certificate as part of the requirements for clearance as a minister by the Senate.
