Nigerians react to Minister of Communication, Shittu skipping NYSC

Minister of Communication, Adebayo Shittu, who is also an Oyo State governorship aspirant has also been accused of not participating in the National Youth Service Corps scheme.

Barely one week after erstwhile Minister of Finance, Kemi Adeosun resigned, Premium Times who also broke the news has reported that Adebayo didn’t do NYSC after graduating from the Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU) in 1978.

Shittu was said to have graduated at the age of 25, completed his programme at the Law School, and was elected into the Oyo State House of Assembly.

According to Premium Times, he graduated in 1978 at the age of 25, and finished Law school in 1979, the same year he was elected into the House of Assembly .

On his part, the Minister said he deliberately skipped NYSC, because “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.”
