NYSC certificate held by Enugu Governor-elect, Peter Mbah not from us – DG

Factual Pursuit of Truth for Progress

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

Brig Gen Ahmed who was a guest on a television programme on Friday, said l the argument on whether Mbah has a valid NYSC certificate or not, does not arise because he has told the PDP 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

Peter Mbah has reportedly filed a case against the NYSC, allegedly claiming N20 billion in damages for the injuries he claims have been caused him by the controversies surrounding his discharge certificate.

The controversy surrounding Mbah’s discharge certificate blew open in February 2023, when the NYSC, in response to an inquiry by a non-governmental organisation, released a letter stating that the certificate submitted to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) was not issued by them.
