 Following the controversies surrounding Finance minister Kemi Adeosun and her NYSC exemption certificate, a former Director of Mobilisation at the National Youth Service Corps, Anthony Ani, has made it known that the certificate of exemption purportedly issued by the NYSC to the Minister of Finance, is fake.Ani during an interview on Sunrise Daily, a Channels Television programme, on Wednesday, said; “The NYSC cannot issue that kind of certificate. Yes, the one reported by Premium Times. We could not have issued that type.” He added:  “The certificate that I saw, that one that I saw if it is the one that they are talking about, the one I saw online, it was not issued by NYSC. I don’t know who issued it. It was not issued by NYSC because what I saw there, the signatory to that certificate was our DG (Gen. Bomoi) who left in January and Gen. Tsiga took over from Gen Bomoi. “Tsiga was a sitting DG even as of that September 2009. So, I don’t know where her certificate came from but NYSC cannot make that kind of mistake. The NYSC that I served, I know can never make that kind of mistake.”  Ani also made it known that it is not possible for NYSC to issue a certificate of exemption to someone who graduated below the age of 30. He maintained that the only persons exempted from service were those who had served in the police, military or graduated above the age of 30. “If you are above 30 even by one day, you will be exempted but if you are below 30 or you are 30 at the time of graduation, you will be deployed. “It is not possible to be exempted if you graduated below 30 because it is against the NYSC Act.” Responding to a question, he said, “So, even if you graduate at the age of 20 and you are in the United States and you have not made yourself available to be mobilised, whenever you come back even if you are 60 years, you have to undergo the NYSC.”  Photo Credit: Getty
