NYSC scandal takes toll on Shittu’s political future


Days after former Minister of Finance, Mrs. Kemi Adeosun resigned her juicy office over admission of possession of forged National Youth Service Corps exemption document, another politician, this time, Minister of Communication, Mr. Adebayo Shittu has also been screened out of the Oyo State All Progre

ssives Congress (APC) governorship primaries over non possession of NYSC certificate

The minister’s failure to participate in the mandatory one-year scheme after his graduation from the Obafemi Awolowo University was widely reported last week.

After graduating from the Nigerian Law School in 1979 at 25, Adebayo rather than enrolling for the mandatory one year scheme, ran for a seat in the Oyo state House of Assembly which he won.

The National Working Committee of the APC took the decision to screen him out based on the report of the party’s Governorship Aspirants Screening Committee.

Nigerians are, however, wondering whether the ruling APC would not invoke the spirit of the Nigerian constitution to mete out punishment on the duo to serve as a deterrent to other Nigerian graduates who may be contemplating circumventing the NYSC scheme.
