‘Enugu Governor’s NYSC Certificate a Forgery,’ Human Rights Writers Confirm

Must read

ABUJA, Nigeria — The Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria, HURIWA, has confirmed that the National Youth Service Corps, NYSC, considers the Discharge Certificate of Enugu State Governor, Peter Mbah, a forgery.

HURIWA sent a delegation to the NYSC headquarters on Friday, July 21, 2023, seeking clarity on recent online reports from the election tribunal suggesting the NYSC may have changed its stance on the alleged forged certificate.

The group demanded a public apology from the NYSC’s Director-General to Governor Mbah if the allegations were unfounded.

However, HURIWA reported on Saturday, July 22, 2023, that NYSC reaffirmed its position that the certificate presented by Governor Mbah is fraudulent.

“The NYSC top management staff firmly reiterated that they have not altered their position, confirming that Governor Peter Mbah’s NYSC certificate is fake and not issued by the NYSC,” HURIWA’s National Coordinator, Emmanuel Onwubiko, stated.

This announcement follows HURIWA’s ongoing advocacy for transparency, accountability, and justice in public institutions.

The organization has been involved in scrutinising Governor Mbah’s Certificate of Discharge even before he assumed office.

HURIWA expressed concern over recent misleading online reports implying that the NYSC had confirmed the validity of the governor’s certificate.

It emphasized that the NYSC’s stance on the alleged forgery remains unchanged.

“As a civil rights body, HURIWA’s advocacy on this matter is grounded in its commitment to upholding justice, human rights, and the rule of law. The organization remains neutral and non-partisan, seeking transparency and accountability from public officeholders,” the statement added.

HURIWA urged the media to verify the information before dissemination to avoid misinformation and confusion.

The organization also called on the NYSC to provide any additional evidence it may have to support its claim and encouraged Governor Mbah to cooperate fully with the legal process.

In its concluding remarks, HURIWA reaffirmed its commitment to advocating for transparency and accountability across all government and public institutions, entrusting the judiciary to dispense justice fairly and independently as the legal proceedings continue.
