Chairman of the Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption (PACAC), Itse Sagay, reacted to calls by Nigerians for the Minister of Finance, Kemi Adeosun, to respond to the allegations that she forged her NYSC discharge certificate.
According to him, Adeosun’s expertise is very important to this administration and that she cannot be allowed to go just because of NYSC certificate.
Now, political commentator, Kayode Ogundamisi has described Itse Sagay’s comment as a ‘very big dissapointment’.

Professor Itse Sagay said he does not care about @HMKemiAdeosun’s @nysc_ng certificate scandal, I acknowledge Professor positive Itse Sagay’s contribution to Nigeria and especially our legal system is enormous, however his comments is a big disappointment. A very big one at that
Professor Itse Sagay heads a very important anti-corruption platform titled Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption. @PremiumTimesng did not question @HMKemiAdeosun competence, the issue at hand is about allegedly FORGING an official document of a government agency.
Since news of the forgery broke. @HMKemiAdeosun refuse to admit or deny allegations by @PremiumTimesng
@nysc_ng in over a month is unable to confirm authenticity or otherwise of Adeosuns’s NYSC certificate. Prof Itse Sagay should be irked as an anti-corruption about the silence
‘I acknowledge Professor positive Itse Sagay’s contribution to Nigeria and especially our legal system is enormous, however his comments is a big disappointment. A very big one at that. I respectfully submit that Prof Itse Sagay(SAN) is being smatter by half by trying to link the allegation of forgery against Kemi Adeosun to her performance as Minister, they are not the same. If we all FALSIFY our way to public office then Nigeria is DOOMED’.
