NYSC Certificate Saga: Court Slates October 8 to hear the trial against Adeosun

The Federal Supreme Court of Abuja set October 8 to hear a lawsuit to dismiss the Finance Minister, Ms. Kemi Adeosun, for not possessing a valid discharge certificate issued by the National Youth Services Corps of the NYSC.

The chief judge of the superior court, Judge Abdul Abdu-Kafarati, assigned the suit under the trademark FHC / ABJ / CS / 712/2018 to Judge Ijeoma Ojukwu for an expedited hearing.

A constitutional lawyer, Mr. Francis Obalim, approached the court, praying for an order nullifying and setting aside the appointment of Mrs. Adeosun as Minister of the Federal Republic of Nigeria by President Muhammadu Buhari, which is an act made to circumvent a preceding condition and in contravention of Mandatory Sections 12, 13 and 14 of the NYSC Act, which is an integral part of the 1999 Constitution, as amended.


He argued that Adeosun, who was cited as the first defendant in the matter, was not qualified to be employed by the Federal Government of Nigeria or as Minister of the Federal Republic of Nigeria or in any other function, without first presenting a valid disclaimer. certificate issued by the NYSC.

The plaintiff, through his attorney, Mr. Johnmary Jideobi, applied for a perpetual restraining order restricting FG according to a ministerial status to the first defendant, until he presents a valid discharge certificate issued regularly by the NYSC.

She wants the court to oblige the 1st defendant to immediately reimburse FG, through the Single Treasury Account domiciled in the Central Bank of Nigeria, all the salaries, emoluments, subsidies and other benefits it has enjoyed since its resumption as Minister in 2015 .

Other defendants in the lawsuit are the Attorney General of the Federation and the Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, SAN, the President of the Senate, Dr. Bukola Saraki and the Secretary of the Senate.
