The discharge certificate being shown by Peter Mbah, the next governor of Enugu State, was not given by the National Youth Service Corps, according to Brig Gen YD Ahmed, Director General of the body.
The question of whether Mbah has a valid NYSC certificate or not did not come up, according to Brig Gen Ahmed, who made an appearance on Arise TV’s breakfast program on Friday. He informed the PDP candidate for governor in 2023 that the certificate Mbah had presented was a fake.
“He came to me and I called my director to confirm the certificate and we discovered that the fake and I told him…I wonder how elites certificate waswho have gone to school will resort to black market certificates.
“Everyone knows how we issue our certificate in NYSC we don’t give it in hotel rooms or houses,” the DG said.
Meanwhile, the Enugu state governor-elect, Peter Mbah has filed a case against the NYSC, demanding N20 billion for injuries he claimed to have been inflicted on his person due to the controversies surrounding his certificate.
Recall that controversy surrounding Mbah’s discharge certificate became known publicly in February 2023, when the NYSC, in response to an inquiry by a non-governmental organisation, released a letter stating that the certificate submitted to the Independent National Electoral Commission was not issued by them
