Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria (HURIWA) alleged that Musawa is undertaking the one-year mandatory youth service scheme while she is a cabinet member in the government of President Bola Tinubu.

Musawa was part of the 45 ministers sworn in as members of the Federal Executive Council (FEC) on Monday by President Tinubu.

Earlier, HURIWA in a statement claimed that Musawa is a corp member of NYSC and that her place of primary assignment is a law firm in Abuja.

HURIWA urged the NYSC management to compel Musawa to choose between her national youth service or the ministerial appointment.

It wondered why the status of Musawa was not made known to the members of the public before the senate screened her for the position.

The rights group alleged that Musawa abandoned her NYSC years ago in Ebonyi state but later showed interest in completing it.

In September 2020, former President Muhammadu Buhari nominated Musawa as a national commissioner representing the north-west geopolitical zone on the national pension commission board.

But the Senate in October of that same year turned down her nomination following a report from the committee on establishment and public service matters that Musawa failed to provide her NYSC certificate or exemption letter.

Recall that the former minister of finance, Kemi Adeosun that served under former President Buhari first tenure was relieved of duty on the ground of not providing nysc certificate after graduating from the university.

But, Hannatu Musawa case surface in less than a week after being appointed as honourable minister of Art, Culture and Creative Economy.

The report by NYSC proved positive, the claims by HURIWA on the ground that the minister of Art and Culture is a serving corps member.
