APC disqualifies Adebayo Shittu from Oyo gubernatorial over NYSC scandal



The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has disqualified Minister of communications,Adebayo Shittu from the governorship race over mandatory National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) scandal.

Recently, a report by online news medium, Premium Times had revealed that the Minister didn’t participate in the compulsory one-year NYSC scheme even he graduated at 25.

Shittu, who graduated from the then University of Ife (now Obafemi Awolowo University, OAU) was said to have immediately gone into politics upon graduation.

Although, Shittu(a Lawyer) in his defense claimed serving in the Oyo state House of Assembly, was already a service to his fatherland hence didn’t see the need to participate in the NYSC scheme.

More details shortly…

  1. As for me, I am not supporting the fact that he didn’t go for youth service but what about the president without 0 level certificate not to talk of NYSC certificate

  2. When he serve in the state and federal government no issue of NYSC certificate, this nation history make one to laugh.

  3. Buhari certificate or not, try to go over the requirement then and nysc wasnt in existence then so don’t blame buhari oo the requirements then, he fulfilled them all

  4. the Minister didn’t participate in the compulsory one-year NYSC scheme even he graduated at 25.
