Shuaib Ibrahim, the NYSC’s director-general, recently accused universities in Benin of submitting unqualified applicants for the one-year mandatory national service.
He claimed that since taking office, he has discovered that some corps members have been returned to NYSC by their employers on the grounds that they are not eligible to teach, or that they are unable to learn, and so on.
He also reported that the scheme had recently arrested a large number of bogus corps members and turned them over to the police for prosecution.
NYSC has started an inquiry into the activities of the universities involved in the illegal practice, according to Ibrahim.
The Nigerian government established the National Youth Service Corps to promote unity and involve Nigerian graduates in nation-building and growth.
