Nigerian pop star, David Adeleke, popularly known as Davido, may be in for fresh troubles following the cancellation of his one-year compulsory NYSC scheme, 
The ‘Fall’ crooner announced that has cancelled his one year service in a comment on Instagram.
The 26-year-old ace singer has come under fire lately for travelling out of the country when he is supposed to be at the Lagos camp observing the mandatory three weeks orientation period of the one-year National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) program, thereby breaking the scheme’s by-laws.
The bye-laws of NYSC states the following conditions for corps members during orientation period.
It states that, “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 however stipulates that “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.”
However, just after his registration, Davido is said to have travelled out of the country to Boston for his ‘Locked Up’ U.S tour. This has, however, raised some arguments among Nigerians as to whether Davido was permitted to travel and or; whether or not he flouted the NYSC bye-laws. While some said he did flout the bye-laws, others said he did not.
Other NYSC by-laws violated by Davido include:
• Bringing vehicles into the orientation camp;
• Disclosing official information;
• Engaging in private practice;
• Taking part in partisan politics;
• Reporting late to duty;
• Traveling outside the country without the service’ permission, among others.
Our correspondent observed from his Instagram page that just after a few days in the camp, Davido travelled to Boston, Massachusetts, as he embarked on a tour of the United States.
