Director General of the National Youth Service Corps, Brigadier General Shuaibu Ibrahim has accused universities in the Benin Republic of presenting unqualified persons for its one-year mandatory national service.
He revealed that NYSC had begun investigations into the activities of the universities involved in the fraudulent practice.
In a statement by the NYSC Director, Press and Public Relations, Mrs. Adenike Adeyemi, Ibrahim was quoted as saying: “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 mobilization.
“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 mobilization of unqualified graduates for national service graduates.
