The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has asked for the support of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) in eliminating fake mobilisation of unqualified graduates for national service.
This request was made when a delegation led by the NYSC Director-General, Brig.-Gen. Shuaibu Ibrahim, paid a courtesy visit in to the EFCC acting chairman at the agency’s Headquarters, Abuja.
He appealed for EFCC support “in NYSC’s quest to monitor the activities of some higher institutions that present unqualified graduates for mobilisation for national service.”
“It is unfortunate that some institutions of higher learning, particularly in Cotonou, Benin Republic present to us people who didn’t go to 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,” he said
On his part the acting chairman of EFCC, Ibrahim Magu, condemned activities of unpatriotic Nigerians who brought shame to the country through their desperate quest for wealth, including sale of academic qualifications to unqualified graduates.
He promised to collaborate with NYSC to checkmate illegal activities of such individuals.
