Justice Taiwo Taiwo, in his ruling on the originating summon with suit number: FHC/ABJ/CS/303/21 brought by Wole Olanipekun, SAN, on her behalf, held that the NYSC certificate based on the constitution is not a mandatory requirement for holding a political office in the country.

Mrs Adeosun was the plaintiff in the suit while the Attorney-General of the Federation, AGF, was the sole defendant.
