Davido Breaks NYSC Bye-Laws By Leaving Orientation Camp For His Concert In America?

By | September 3, 2018


It obviously is no longer news that Nigerian singer, Adeleke David, better known as Davido, just last month, registered for the compulsory one-year National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) scheme.

The singer reported to the NYSC orientation camp at Iyana-Ipaja to complete his registration, on Thursday. However, not more that 48 hours later, he was said to be on his way to Boston for his ‘Locked Up‘ tour of the United States of America.

Meanwhile, all NYSC members are expected to be on ground at the camp during the three weeks’ orientation programme, with a few exceptions.

Excerpts from the NYSC Bye-laws revised in 1993 give strict rules for corps members during the orientation period.

According to Schedule 1: 3b:

“During the period of orientation, every member shall:

(i) Attend regularly, punctually and participate fully in all official engagements on the field, at lecture and all places of work;

(ii) Not leave the Orientation Camp or absent himself from any official activity without the written consent of the State Director or his representative;

(iii) When absent from his duties on account of illness ensure that such absence is covered by an “Excuse Duty Certificate” issued by a medical doctor then on duty at the camp.”

The Bye-laws also state penalties for leaving the camp without the permission of the State Director.


According to Schedule 2: 1b states that:

“The following penalties shall be imposed in the following circumstances.

“Leaving the camp without permission of the State Director” will attract “extension of the service year by double the number of days for which the member was absent from his camp and forfeiture of his allowance for the same number of days of which he was absent.”

The NYSC Bye-laws of 1993 is the code guiding every corps member in the country.

According to SaharaReporters, efforts were made to reach out to an official of Lagos NYSC orientation camp to confirm if Davido got the written consent of the State Director, the official.

After initial hesitation to respond to the matter, he asked that the State Coordinator, Prince Mohammed Momoh, be contacted.

However, efforts by SaharaReportersto get across to him were unsuccessful.
