NYSC Certificates Will Now Carry Corps Members Date Of Birth

The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has disclosed that the date of birth of corp members would start appearing as from the issuance of the Batch C discharge certificates to guard against age falsification.

The NYSC Director-General, Shuaibu Ibrahim, said this while speaking to newsmen on Thursday in Abuja.

He said the NYSC Act stipulates that fake graduates are liable to two years in jail, after prosecution and said a corps producing institution will be blacklisted if it engages in this act.

“If I show you their papers, you will feel very sad. Some people have asked me if NYSC has the power to crosscheck the certification of graduates, I said no, but we have the power to ensure that unqualified Nigerians are not mobilised for service.

“The NYSC Act says unqualified Nigerians who go for service are liable for jail (term) of two years.

“So, the NYSC will never condone or abet illegality in any form. We want Nigerians to know that. Since inception, 4,644,804 Nigerians have participated in the scheme.”

Meanwhile, the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has lamented delay in implementation not the new minimum wage.

  1. Hian, thank God I've served oh. Very soon, nysc cert will carry class of degree and waec result 😏

    1. Yes oooooh. So if you want to change you age do it in nursery level before WAEC. Lol
      The most Complex
      The most Complex

  2. See gbege for people claiming to be below 30yes of age.

  3. Come up with job opportunities,not all these

  4. big time gbege oh. Goodluck to them.

  5. This is not reasonable...alot of things to be implemented and not this..

    Pple are hungry,no food,no work etc..the economic situation is not favourable..why not come up with good measures in tackling unemployment n co

  6. Abeg let them face important things. If the system works as it should, why would anyone falsify their age? After all the plenty school strikes and all, the jobs available would be asking for not over 25 years of age with 100 years experience. Nonsense.

  7. Shouldn't someone be pushing for this scheme to be abolished? It is no longer serving the purpose it was meant for. If we want to relate with other tribes, we can do so on SM.
