Serving corps member, Davido, has been in the news a lot lately, especially since he started his compulsory National Youth Service Corps. Nigerians have talked a lot about him flouting the strict rules of the scheme. Latest of the online debate was pointed out by comedian Wale Gates.
According to the NYSC rules and regulations, serving corps members are not allowed to take part in partisan politics. Doing so attracts a penalty of 3 months without pay.
But Davido has been supporting his uncle who is contesting for the Governor of Osun state and has been photographed at rallies clad in the PDP uniform.
But most people are of the opinion that there’s nothing to be discussed because Davido can well do without the three months meagre allowance.

People rolled out their guns at me for this tweet. Davido is now campaigning for PDP in Osun. I will wait for the evidence of how he was deployed from Lagos to Osun for his primary assignment.
NYSC bylaws also prohibit political activities. Once again, we are showing ourselves https://t.co/frZmWHlnum

To those accusing @iam_Davido of flouting @nysc_ng rules, I ask you: Have you seen any of President @MBuhari’s children in NYSC uniform? Zahra @zmbuhari graduated. Did she serve? Yusuf the power bike rider, did he serve? Hypocrisy will kill Nigeria before corruption #RenosDarts
