Emmanuel Attah, the Osun coordinator of the National Youth Service Corps, on Saturday, July 21, appealed to prospective graduates posted to the state for NYSC to declare their health status for better management.
Attah made the appeal in an interview with News Agency of Nigeria in Osogbo, on the corps preparedness to accommodate and camp new set of graduates for the NYSC scheme.
He said that the Osun NYSC orientation camp, located at Ede, would be opened on Tuesday, July 25, through to Wednesday, July 26 for the graduates posted to the state to report and register.
He added that the camp would be closed for registration by Wednesday midnight for the 21 days orientation, while registered members would be sworn in as 2018 Batch B corps members on Thursday, July 19.
He, therefore, appealed to graduates coming for NYSC not to hide their health status and avoid coming to the camp with fake medical certificate of fitness to deceive NYSC officials.
Attah said:“knowing their health status would help us to assist them properly.
“Their health condition would not stop them from serving their fatherland, but concealing their health condition would make it difficult for us to attend to them properly.“
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported that the Civil Society Groups for Good Governance reacted to the ongoing certificate scandal involving the finance minister, Kemi Adeosun.
Adeosun, 51, has in the last few weeks, been a subject of controversy as a report by an online newspaper indicated that her National Youths Service Corps (NYSC) certificate was forged.
The Ogun state-born minister has been silent on the issue, while the federal government has since set up a panel to probe the authenticity of the media report.
