Corp members to start receiving Certificate with Photo

THE National Youth Service Corps on Tuesday in Abuja unveiled a new certificate bearing special security features and photographs of recipients. The issuance of the new NYSC certificates would take effect from the 2014 Batch ‘C’, scheduled to pass out on Thursday (tomorrow). The Director-General of the NYSC, Brig-Gen. Johnson Olawumi, represented by its acting Director of Certification, Alhaji Aliu Daura, said the new certificate was conceptualised as a step to wage war against forgery and impersonation.

 He said, “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 members registered 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. With effect from Batch ‘C’ 2014, all certificates of National Service will bear passport photographs of the corps members at the upper right hand corner of the certificate. “This is to guarantee the security of our certificates from forgery and to block all chances of impersonation. Therefore, Batch ‘C’ 2014 corps members, who are due to pass-out on October 15, 2015, will have their certificates embossed with their photograph.”
