The National Youth Service Corps has decried the number of fake and unqualified students fostered on the scheme. Lamenting the development, the Director-General of the National Youth Service Corps, Brig.-Gen. Shuaibu Ibrahim, condemned the manners some universities in Benin Republic allegedly presented unqualified persons for mobilisation by the scheme.
The Director-General maintained that the NYSC scheme has begun investigation into the matter. The NYSC Director for Press and public relations,Mrs. Adenike Adeyemi while reading a statement in Abuja stated ,”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.”
The NYSC press briefing did not state whether the graduates from the affected universities in Benin Republic were Nigerians or Beninois.
