DAILY FILE – National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) said it would include the date of birth of corps members on the certificate of national service as a measure to guard against age falsification.
The NYSC said its decision was informed by the West African Examination Certificate and the scheme’s Exemption Certificate which included the dates of birth of the holders.
The NYSC Director-General, Shuaibu Ibrahim, said this in a keynote address during the technical session at the 2019 Batch B pre-mobilisation workshop in Abuja on Tuesday.
According to the PUNCH, the DG said the scheme observed that some tertiary institutions were guilty of presenting over-aged graduates for mobilisation.
