NYSC warns foreign institutions against mobilising fake graduates

The Director General of National Youth Service Corps, NYSC, Brigadier General YD Ahmed, has stated that the Scheme would continue to prevent unqualified persons from participating in National Service.

He said NYSC programme aims at remodelling the Nigerian youths for national unity and development through inculcation of values such as discipline, honesty, probity, accountability, hardwork, entrepreneurship and self reliance.

He disclosed this on Wednesday in his address at the meeting of NYSC Management with some Corps Producing Institutions in Africa, with the theme; ‘Tackling the Emerging Challenges in Mobilization of Foreign-Trained Graduates For Effective National Service’, in Abuja.

Ahmed added that instead of building world-class graduates in both character and learning and in consonance with the ideals of NYSC, the tendency by school owners to cut corners and maximize financial gain takes the centre stage, leading to antithetical production of graduates.

“It is expected that, from 2024 Batch ‘A’ service year, collection of masterlist of graduates would be extended to schools in Niger Republic, Cameroun, Ghana, and Uganda, which constitutes about 20% of graduates from the African continent.

“The exercise would be extended to cover countries identified with high vulnerability to faking of academic and travel documents,” he said.
