Kemi Adeosun must be charming to the bones; from the buff in her grin to the restive glint in her eyes, the new Minister of Finance certainly ignited the right sparks in the mind and consciousness of  President Muhammadu Buhari. Thus despite the flurry of gossip and uncomplimentary stories that trailed her emergence as a ministerial nominee, Mr. President trusted his guts and entrusted her with the nation’s finance ministry.

It would be recalled that Kemi’s nomination generated buzz within and outside the ruling party, All Progressives Congress (APC), as detractors and apologists of the pretty financial expert engaged in a slug-fest of sort over her suitability for the post. But Buhari went on to appoint her on recommendation from her former principal, Governor Ibikunle Amosun of Ogun State, with whom she served as Commissioner of Finance. No sooner did Governor Amosun nominate her for the ministerial slot for Ogun State than the rumour mill set to work spinning sludge against the honour of Kemi Adeosun. Sources in Ogun State government claimed that she is to Governor Amosun what Diezani Alison-Madueke, former petroleum minister, was to former President Goodluck Jonathan. Whoever messed with her, it was alleged, did so at his or her own peril.

Top government officials allegedly caught the flu whenever Adeosun sneezed and she never failed to rub it in the face of whoever crossed her path that she enjoys a chummy relationship with Governor Amosun. She was that influential with Governor Amosun and her word became law with his unflinching support, according to her critics.

However, despite the acerbic stories about her, Kemi Adeosun has emerged finance minister.
