NYSC Raises Concerns Over Minister's Appointment Contradicting Service Act


The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has expressed its concerns regarding the recent appointment of Mrs. Hannatu Musawa as the Minister of Arts and Culture. The NYSC has pointed out that her appointment seemingly breaches the NYSC Act, as she reportedly accepted the ministerial role before completing her mandatory one-year youth service program.

Eddy Megwa, the Director of Press and Public Relations at NYSC, addressed the matter by highlighting that Musawa's acceptance of the ministerial position contradicts the stipulations of the NYSC Act. This Act mandates that corps members refrain from assuming government appointments until they have successfully completed their one-year service commitment.

Megwa provided details about Musawa's history with the NYSC program. She was initially mobilized for the youth service program in 2001, with her orientation taking place in Ebonyi state. However, she reportedly relocated to Kaduna State during her service tenure. Regrettably, she failed to complete her service, as she absconded from the program after moving to Kaduna.

The NYSC has acknowledged the situation and has indicated that it will investigate the matter further. The organization has emphasized its commitment to ensuring compliance with the NYSC Act and will take appropriate action as necessary.
