A former Director of Mobilisation at the National Youth Service Corps, Anthony Ani, has disclosed that the certificate of exemption purportedly issued by the NYSC to the Minister of Finance, Mrs Kemi Adeosun, is fake.
“The certificate that I saw, that one that I saw, the one I saw online, it was not issued by NYSC. I don’t know who issued it,” Ani said.
It was not issued by NYSC because what I saw there, the signatory to that certificate was our DG (Gen. Bomoi) who left in January and Gen. Tsiga took over from Gen Bomoi.”
The former NYSC director, who was in charge of deployment of corps members, said Brig. Gen. M. I Tsiga was the Director-General of the NYSC in September 2009 but curiously, it was Brig. Gen. Yusuf Bomoi, who purportedly signed the one belonging to the minister.
Ani added, “Tsiga was a sitting DG even as of that September 2009. So, I don’t know where her certificate came from but NYSC cannot make that kind of mistake. The NYSC that I served, I know can never make that kind of mistake.”
He also said it was impossible for the NYSC to have issued a certificate of exemption to someone who graduated below the age of 30.
