Director-General, National Youth Service Corps, Brigadier-General Shuaibu Ibrahim, has asked employers not to employ ex-corps members who do not present an authentic NYSC certificate or exemption certificate.
He spoke in Abuja yesterday 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'.
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 advised employers to present the NYSC certificates of their existing employees to the scheme for authentication if need be.
He said the workshop would harness the potentials of corps lawyers for improved legal aid services to indigent members of the society and to harmonise the operations of the Corps Legal Aid Scheme nationwide.
