The Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria has said that the Minister of Art, Culture and Creative Economy, Hannatu Musawa, is still undertaking the one-year mandatory National Youth Service Corps scheme.


In a statement on Thursday, HURIWA said the minister was mobilised this year and got posted to a law firm in Abuja before her appointment.

The group urged the NYSC to compel Musawa to focus on either her national youth service or the ministerial appointment.

“She was confirmed by the senate without proper screening and sworn in by President Bola Ahmed Tinubu as minister of arts

“HURIWA wonders about the kind of scrutiny being conducted by the Department of State Services so much so that it wasn’t disclosed that the minister is a youth corper,” the statement added.

As of press time, the Director of Press and Public Relations at the NYSC headquarters, Eddy Megwa, did not pick up calls to his line or respond to the message sent to him.

However, he confirmed to TheCable on Thursday, that the minister is a corps member.

“Yes she is a serving corp member,” he was quoted as saying.

The Minister did not answer calls to her line and was yet to respond to the message sent to her on the matter.
