Former presidential campaign spokesman of President Bola Tinubu, Dr. Josef Onoh has risen in defense of the newly appointed Minister for Arts, Culture and Creative Economy, Hannatu Musawa against the recent attacks on her for emerging a serving minister without concluding her National Youth Service Corps (NYSC).
Human rights lawyers such as Femi Falana had raised the alarm that Hannatu was still in the NYSC service year while being appointed as a Minister, but Onoh said that what Hannatu’s critics are doing is balderdash.
According to Onoh, Hanatu has not broken any law by accepting to serve as a minister while
in service year as alleged, disclosing that the constitution is clear on what the NYSC can do which he said is to remobilize her anytime in future if she absconds from service.
