Enugu gov-elect’s discharge certificate not from us — NYSC DG

Brigadier General Shuaibu Ibrahim, NYSC Director-General.

The Director General of the National Youth Service Corps, Brig Gen YD Ahmed, has said the discharge certificate being paraded by the Enugu State Governor-elect, Peter Mbah, was not issued by the body.

Brig Gen Ahmed, while appearing on Arise TV’s breakfast programme on Friday said the argument on whether Mbah has a valid NYSC certificate or not did not arise because he has told the Peoples Democratic Party’s candidate in the 2023 governorship elections that what he presented as a certificate was fake.

“He came to me and I called my director to confirm the certificate and we discovered that the certificate was fake and I told him…I wonder how elites who have gone to school will resort to black market certificates.

Everyone knows how we issue our certificate in NYSC, we don’t give it in hotel rooms or houses,” the DG said.
