Newly enhanced NYSC certificates to bear photograph of corps members

NYSC corps members
In an effort to check against forgery and impersonation, the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), on Tuesday, unveiled the newly enhanced NYSC certificates.

The certificates, which comprise the Certificate of National Service, Certificate of Exemption and Letter of Exclusion, will now bear the passport photograph of corps members at the upper right hand corner of the certificate.

Addressing newsmen in Abuja at the unveiling of the new certificate, the acting Director of Certification, Alhaji Aliyu Daura, said this would take effect from the Batch 'C' 2014 corps members who are due to pass out on Thursday, 15th October, 2015.

He stated that the new innovation would guarantee the security of the scheme's certificates from forgery and block all chances of impersonation.

Consequently, he urged employers to forward any purportedly issued by the scheme for verification of its authenticity.

This is as he disclosed that efforts are also being made by the scheme to automate verification of all NYSC certificates for easy access by the public.
"In our concerted effort to make the operation of the NYSC conform with global best practices, the scheme engaged in the holistic e-NYSC solution with effect from Batch 'C' 2014 where prospective corps members register online before proceeding to the orientation camp.

"This resulted in the enhancement of issuance of NYSC certificates namely Certificate of National Service, Certificate of Exemption and Letter of Exclusion."
