NYSC certificate

A Nigerian lady, identified as Gloria Adjei has cried out for help after she was allegedly denied her National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) discharge certificate following her completion of the one-year scheme.

Gloria took to her Instagram page on Thursday to narrate her ordeal as 2018 Batch C Stream 1 corps members passed out of the scheme today.

She said she was denied the certificate because she graduated from a foreign university.

Gloria said she studied in Benin Republic and registered for the mandatory one-year youth service in compliance with the law of the land.

The NYSC Decree of 1973 says:

“Every Nigerian below the age of 30 years who has completed his first degree at any university in Nigeria is liable to be called upon to serve in the service corps for a continuous period of one year.”

Failure to serve the country is a criminal offense punishable under section 13 of the NYSC Decree which reads:

“A person who refuses to make himself available for service in the service corps continuously for the period specified in subsection (2) of this section is guilty of an offense and liable on conviction to a fine of N2, 000 or to imprisonment for a term of 12 months or to both.”

This is the law Gloria was complying with when she registered for the scheme upon completion of her bachelor’s degree programme in Benin Republic.
