Former presidential aide, Bashir Ahmad, has said that the Minister of Art, Culture and Creative Economy, Hannatu Musa Musawa, has not released any statement regarding the controversy surrounding her National Youth Service Corps certificate.
In the report, Musawa had claimed that her appointment didn’t break the country’s laws.
She had said, “I would like to state clearly that contrary to wrong insinuations and false assumptions in a section of the mainstream media and social media where false accusations have been made, there is no breach of any law or constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria as amended regarding my current position as a Minister and status as a serving corps member.”
However, Ahmad said that the statement is false and not in any way linked to Musawa.
He explained that she had issued a statement through the Ministry of Information and National Orientation clarifying that she did not release any official statement.
Speaking via his X handle, Ahmad wrote, “Minister of Art, Culture and Creative Economy, Barrister Hannatu Musa Musawa, has issued a statement through the Ministry of Information and National Orientation clarifying that she has not released any official statement regarding the controversy surrounding her NYSC certificate, as she kindly asked the public to be cautious of unverified information.”
