16+6=24?: Minister Of Finance Kemi Adeosun Under Fire!

Reactions have continued to trail the mistake Nigeria’s minister of finance, Kemi Adeosun made when she was identifying some anomalies in the revenue generated by a top examination body in the country. Adeosun had goofed while doing simple arithmetic and said the addition of 16 billion and 6 billion would amount to N24billion, instead of N22billion.

Her error generated mixed reactions from Nigerians on social media as some expected someone of her status to get such simple arithmetic right.
Of course some Nigerians saw this mistake as a very large loophole on her part, a they expected someone filling that position to know better than the mistake, while some jumped to her aid:


Well, this is my opinion,. She is only human. Someone who sleeps and wakes up with calculations running in her brain, its unavoidable that she makes this kind of mistake. She’s not perfect. She should be given another chance.
