NYSC Partner JAMB to Eradicate Age Falsification by Graduating Students

National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) Plans to Partner with the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) on Eradication of Age Falsification by Graduating Students who are on the Increase Following the Increment of Monthly Allowance by Graduating Students.

The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) says graduates are falsifying their age to qualify for service under the scheme and benefit from the increment in the monthly allowance of corps members from N19, 800 to N33,000.

The Director-General of the corps, Shuaibu Ibrahim, said this on Tuesday at the 2020 Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board virtual policy meeting.

“Following the allowance increment, people are now doctoring their ages so they can come to serve two or three times because of the allowances.”

He said the corps would be partnering with JAMB to eradicate age falsification by graduating students.

“Mr Oloyede is a man of honour and I am learning to implement some of the innovation he has brought to JAMB in NYSC,” he said.

He said the JAMB registrar, Ishaq Oloyede, has turned the board around for good and the NYSC will like to work with JAMB to solve the problem of ghost corp members too.

He said the NYSC will like to have desk officers in JAMB so the corps can have people to relate with within JAMB.
