Nigerian pop star, Davido may have thrown a jab at the minister of finance, Mrs Kemi Adeosun when he recently took to his Instagram page sharing a picture of himself clad in the NYSC uniform with the caption “Tying every loose end”.
Recall that there was public outrage over reports by an online news portal, Premium Times, detailing how Adeosun allegedly skipped the mandatory national service and used a forged certificate to cover for it.
The scheme, however, promised to investigate the circumstances surrounding the issuance of the certificate to Adeosun.
She is also yet to officially respond to the allegation since it was published over 50 days ago.
Davido’s terse statement may be a subtle jab at the embattled minister, as he doesn’t want to be involved in such a mess should he decide to join to politics later in life.
Recall that Davido’s uncle, Isiaka Adeleke was the first civilian governor of Osun State. He later joined the senate in 2011 under the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and sought reelection in 2015 under the All Progressives Congress (APC) but died in office in April 2017. His younger brother, Ademola has since taken over as the seat though under the platform of the PDP.
Ademola has also declared his interest to run for the governorship election in Osun State. The election is scheduled to hold on September 22.
This may be Davido’s reason for heeding to the clarion call by going for the compulsory NYSC exercise.
Earlier today, the singer shared pictures of himself in the NYSC camp purported to be in Ipaja, Lagos.
The graduate of Babcock University posted pictures of himself before he headed to the camp.
