The Director-General of the National Youth Service Corps, Brig.-Gen. Shuaibu Ibrahim, has condemned some unnamed universities in Benin Republic for allegedly presenting unqualified persons for mobilisation.
He added that the Corps has commenced investigations into the activities of such universities.
This was contained in a statement by the NYSC Director, Press and Public Relations, Mrs. Adenike Adeyemi, in Abuja on Tuesday.
Ibrahim said in the statement, “It is unfortunate that some institutions of higher learning, particularly in Cotonou, Benin Republic, present to us people who didn’t go through the four walls of the university as graduates for NYSC mobilisation.
“We are presently investigating some of such so-called graduates, many of whom cannot write or spell any word in English.”
Adeyemi also revealed that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has pledged to support the NYSC in combating fraudulent mobilisation of unqualified graduates for national service.
