Aunty Kemi! Meet Zainab Ibrahim Adiya, Chemical Engineering PhD Holder Serving In NYSC

This might sound utopia but it seems to be the truth, a Nigerian lady identified as Zainab Adiya is currently making waves on the internet for serving Nigerian despite her academic feat.

The visibly young lady is putting her qualification aside to serve her beloved country Nigeria, a feat a serving Federal Minister in the current dispensation have failed to achieve.

Going by the instagram post of @hausaroom, Zainab who is a Batch B Stream 1 of 2017 set is a Chemical Engineering PhD holder after bagging her first degree in Applied Chemistry and Masters in Chemistry Engineering 

The post reads: “Batch B stream 1 2017 corps member, Zainab Ibrahim Adiya, is probably the first corper with a Ph.D. Her Qualifications: BSc Applied Chemistry MSc Chemical Engineering and Ph.D Chemical Engineering.

Though not the first PhD holder to serve in the compulsory one year integration programme, Many on social media have commended her level of selflessness to serve despite being overqualified to do NYSC drills.

The first PhD holder to serve in NYSC was Dr. Ode Iweh in 1983, he commented on the Instagram post below:
