The Executive Director of Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP), Adetokunbo Mumuni, said the decision to resign may have been informed by the unrelenting pressure over the alleged the certificate scandal and now want a full blown investigation and prosecution of the former minister.
“The President should have asked her to resign before now, so that investigations on the matter can commence and thoroughly too.
If she has been forced to resign, it is a step in the right direction and it should not end there.
“The truth must be found, as to whether she actually forged the certificate and who did it for her.
In democracy, matters cannot just be left to hang for too long and Nigerians have the right to know the truth and that is our concern.”
He noted that going forward, resignation alone should not be a solution to the alleged forgeries, but must be investigated and whoever is found culpable must face the full weight of the law.
