Nigeria’s Minister of Communications, Adebayo Shittu, who was recently screened out of APC’s governorship primaries in Oyo State, has accused Governor Ajimobi of moving to become a Senator without an NYSC certificate.
Adebayo Shittu who blamed Governor Abiola Ajimobi for his ordeals in order to edge him out of the race to Agodi Government House, revealed that he has “on good authority” that Governor Ajimobi also skipped the national youth service scheme.
Speaking on Channels TV’s “Sunday Politics” yesterday, Shittu revealed that Ajimobi who recently indicated that he would be running for the Senate after his tenure as governor, does not possess NYSC certificate.
He further stated that his disqualification was allegedly orchestrated by Governor Ajimobi, to get him out of the race because the governor knows that he will jail him if he becomes the next governor of Oyo State.

Recall that we reported that the Minister of Communications, disclosed that he is now willing to undergo the one year mandatory program.
This disclosure came in an an exclusive interview with popular Ibadan-based broadcast journalist, Edmund Obilo, on his programme ‘State Affairs’. Barely 48 hours before he was disqualified by the party, Mr Shittu said he was willing to embark on the NYSC if it becomes necessary.
Adebayo Shittu who stated that he is willing to serve in any part of Nigeria if it is necessary for him to become Governor of Oyo State, also maintained that he is not Kemi Adeosun. He however debunked claims that Kemi Adeosun forged her NYSC certificate, stating that she was a victim of circumstance.
“Will you still like to go for Youth Service?” asked Mr Obilo. “Of course I will go; it will be a pleasant thing to go after I have been governor by the grace of God,” Mr Shittu said in response to the question. “Yes, why not?”
When Mr Obilo jokingly asked the minister whether he would like to serve in Daura, home of President Muhammadu Buhari, he responded in the affirmative.
“Whichever camp…it doesn’t matter, Daura is part of Nigeria,” he replied, adding that, “I will serve in any place if it becomes necessary for me to go.”
