Another Buhari’s Minister accused of skipping NYSC

205

The Minister of Communications, Adebayo Shittu, failed to participate in the mandatory National Youth Service Scheme (NYSC), despite graduating from the then University of Ife (now Obafemi Awolowo University) at age 25, Premium Times report

The revelation about Shittu, who is currently in the race to become Oyo State governor, comes a week after Kemi Adeosun was compelled to step down from her post as Finance Minister, after allegations that she skipped the compulsory national service and then procured a fake exemption certificate.

Months of discreet checks at the NYSC headquarters showed that Shittu did not present himself for service after graduation and is yet to do so till date.

When contacted on Tuesday, Shittu admitted that he did not serve, but claimed he thought his first political post after graduation could suffice as national service, a claim lawyers and NYSC insiders consider as ludicrous and untenable.

“The constitution provides for the qualification needed for state assembly members, NYSC is not there.

“I didn’t need it to become a member of the state assembly, and that is already a service,” he said

 

Skipping the compulsory national service is an offence under the NYSC law, punishable with up to 12 months imprisonment.
