Following his disqualification from the Oyo gubernatorial race by the All Progressives Congress (APC) for skipping NYSC, Communications Minister, Adebayo Shittu, has claimed Governor Abiola Ajimobi equally skipped the mandatory national youth service scheme.
The ruling APC had on Friday disqualified Shittu from the Oyo governorship race after the minister admitted that he deliberately skipped NYSC because he felt his membership of the Oyo House of Assembly after he graduated from the university had served as national youth service.
But in a revelation he made on Channels Television flagship programme “Politics Today” on Sunday, Shittu said Ajimobi, who recently indicated that he would be running for senate after his tenure as governor, allegedly does not have NYSC certificate.
The minister said the NYSC saga over which he was disqualified was allegedly ochestrated by Governor Ajimobi to get him out of the race because the governor knows that he will jail him if he becomes governor of Oyo State.
He equally claimed to have petitioned the National Working Committee of the APC over his disqualification. He dedcribed the indirect governirship primary as an exercise in futility.
Shittu further stated on the programme that he has gone to court and that he believed he would get justice. The minister described his NYSC saga as a constitutional crisis that would be resolve by the court.
