Brig-Gen. Mohammed Kaku Fadah, the Director-General, National Youths Service Corps, has made a startling revelation.
Fadah, yesterday said during the 2022 Batch ‘B’ Streams I and II Orientation programmes, field officers detected a good number of corps members, especially those claiming to be foreign-trained, with shocking inability to defend their supposed educational qualifications.
He spoke in Abuja at the opening ceremony of the 2022 Batch C pre-mobilisation workshop.
“During our maiden meeting with registrars of corps-producing institutions in Nigeria held in April 2022, they made commitments regarding the strengthening of their data security.
We expect that, amongst other steps, the institutions will always ensure that only credible officers are entrusted with the task of the handing data of their graduates being processed for mobilization,” Fada said.
Registrar, Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, Prof. Ishaq Oloyede, said JAMB would always collaborate with NYSC to expose institutions and students’ affairs officers involved in illegal admission and mobilizations.
