Enugu State Governor-Elect Peter Mbah Accused Of Parading Fake NYSC Certificate - Investigation Reveals.

Peter Mbah.

According to reports, the National Youth Service Corps, NYSC has denied giving Peter Ndubuisi Mbah, the Governor-elect of Enugu State, a Certificate of National Service.

Mbah of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP was accused by several opposition political parties of presenting a falsified NYSC certificate to the Independent National Electoral Commission in the run-up to the March 18, 2023 governorship election (INEC).

The Enugu State PDP Campaign Council, however, disputed the alleged falsification of the NYSC certificate, calling it a rumor of a lame opposition and the final gasp of a dying horse.

The campaign council in a statement by its Director of Public Communications and spokesperson, Nana Ogbodo, said the opposition in the state had realised that they had no prospects in the governorship election and therefore, resorted to smear campaigns.

The council insisted that there was no truth whatsoever in the allegation, but in contradiction to the PDP Enugu state, the NYSC denied granting Mbah’s certificate in response to a request for the document’s confirmation made by a Mary Nneoma Elijah.

This was stated by the NYSC in a letter of response to a request for information on Peter Ndubuisi Mbah’s status with the NYSC and confirmation of a certificate that was enclosed.

Ibrahim A. Muhammad, the director of corps certification, has signed this application in accordance with Section 1 of the Freedom of Information Act of 2011 (FOIA). 

Peter Mbah’s certificate, with Certificate Number: A808297, was not given by the Scheme, according to a letter from NYSC dated February 1, 2023.

“I am directed to refer to your letter dated 23 November, 2022 on the above subject and to convey Management’s delight for compliance with the provision of NYSC Act regarding presentation of the Certificate of National Service or Exemption Certificate by employees/prospective employees holding Degree and HND Certificates.

“We are pleased to inform you that the Certificate of National Service belonging to Mbah Peter Ndubuisi with Certificate Number: A808297 forwarded for verification was not issued by the NYSC.

“As we look forward to close working ties with your organisation, please accept the assurances of the Director-General’s warmest regard.
