Shittu in the new scandal was said to have dodged the scheme mainly because of his election as a member of the Old Oyo state House of Assembly during the second republic.

He said, “Yes, he was screened and cleared today, this afternoon. He has been cleared because he met up the required documents.

“On the issue of NYSC, you know he had served in the state House of Assembly, are they saying that NYSC is more of service that serving in the state House of Assembly? Serving the state is even more than the NYSC.”
