Group claims that the culture minister is still a corper.



The Minister of Art, Culture, and Creative Economy, Hannatu Musawa, has come under fire from the Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria for allegedly holding public office while participating in the one-year National Youth Service Corps program.HURIWA claimed in a statement on Thursday that Musawa had abandoned her NYSC in Ebonyi state years prior but had since expressed interest in finishing it.

According to the group, the minister was posted to an Abuja law company before to her appointment after being mobilized this year.The group recommended that the NYSC force Musawa to prioritize her ministerial appointment or her national youth service.

“She was sworn in as Minister of Arts by President Bola Ahmed Tinubu after being confirmed by the Senate without the required scrutiny.””HURIWA expresses concerns regarding the level of examination carried out by the Department of State Services, to the extent that the minister’s status as a youth corper wasn’t revealed,” the statement continued.

As of the time this report was filed, Eddy Megwa, the Director of Press and Public Relations at NYSC headquarters, was not returning calls to his line and was awaiting a response to the message that was left for him.

He did, however, affirm to TheCable on Thursday that the minister is a member of the corps.”Yes, she is a member of the serving corps,” he was cited as saying.The Minister was unresponsive to messages left for her regarding the issue, and she did not return calls to her number.

Victor Giwa, a lawyer, stated that if the minister was serving, she ought to be in her Place of Primary Assignment.”She is not meant to hold public service at this time, if it is true that she is serving,” he stated.

She has enrolled to serve and is doing her obligations under her PPA. If that’s the case, she really should be in her PPA. This ought to have been discovered during the screening, in my opinion.
