The national youth service corps says it has decided to henceforth include the date of birth of corps members on the certificate of national service as a measure to guard against age falsification.

The NYSC said its decision was informed by the west African examination certificate and the scheme’s exemption certificate which included the dates of birth of the holders.

The NYSC director-general, brig Shuaibu Ibrahim, stated this in Abuja at the 2019 batch b pre-mobilisation workshop, noting that the scheme observed that some tertiary institutions were guilty of presenting over-aged graduates for mobilisation.

Ibrahim said  that the rising number of corps-producing institutions and the “attendant rise in corps members’ population pose a great challenge which  must be addressed.
