Adeosun was confirmed by the Senate in October 2015 and sworn in the following month.


In a statement signed by Femi Adesina, the Presidency this evening confirmed Adeosun had sent in a letter of resignation. President Muhammadu Buhari thanked the Minister for her services to the nation and wished her well in her future pursuits.

Minister of State for Budget and National Planning, Mrs. Zainab Ahmed, has been asked to oversee the Ministry of Finance with effect from today.
