The Federal High Court in Ibadan, on Thursday, granted the application of the Minister of Communications, Adebayo Shittu, to serve originating summons on the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) in Abuja.
The News Agency of Nigeria recalls that Shitts had in the last few weeks been confronted with criticisms for not observing the mandatory one-year national youth service.
Justice P.I. Ajoku ruled that the service of the originating summons be served on the respondents through the bailiffs of the court.
“The service of the plaintiff’s processes on the first, third and fourth defendants who are in Abuja shall be effected by the bailiffs of this honourable court,” the judge ruled.
The judge, however, adjourned the case till Nov. 19 for report of service.
The suit has the Director-General, NYSC; the State Coordinator, NYSC; the NYSC and the Attorney-General of the Federation as the first, second, third and fourth defendants respectively.
