Employers Should Demand Discharge Certificates From Ex-Corps Members Before Employing Them, NYSC DG
Director-General of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), Brigadier-General Shuaibu Ibrahim, has urged employers to always demand for the scheme’s certificate or exemption certification from ex-corps members before granting them employment opportunities.
The DG disclosed this during a legal aid workshop by the scheme with the theme ‘Examining the Laws Regulating the Practice of ICT in Nigeria with Particular Reference to Data Protection Regulations’ in Abuja on June 22.
He cited the provision of the NYSC Act which says that for the purpose of employment anywhere in the federation, every employer has the duty to demand from any graduate a certificate of national service or exemption certificate.
He further advised employers to present the NYSC certificates of their existing employees to the scheme for authentication in order to prevent fraud.
