The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has warned the national Youth Service Corps (NYSC) not be an accomplice in the alleged forgery of the scheme’s certificate by finance minister, Kemi Adeosun.
The opposition gave this advise on Wednesday in a statement through its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan.
He stated that It was instructive for NYSC to note that all issues in the news media reported that Adeosun forged her NYSC Exemption Certificate.
Ologbondiyan also pointed out that reports that the Presidency was mounting pressure on NYSC to cover up for the minister was already in the public domain.
“Moreover, Nigerians are closely monitoring this issue and the public is already aware of pressure on NYSC leadership to announce a misplacement of relevant files and other excuses to achieve a dead end in the investigation.
“The NYSC must, therefore, know that its reputation is highly at stake as Nigerians are already agitated over the questionable delay by NYSC in coming out with an answer on a direct issue.
“Indeed, a simple process of matching the serial numbering, date and authorizing signature on Mrs Adeosun’s certificate does not require a lengthy investigation or the current shenanigan going on at the NYSC headquarters, He said.
The Party Spokesperson further reiterated that NYSC should be conscious of the vastness of the global Information Communication Technology (ICT) age, where no individual could suppress or distort facts.
He pointed out that any of such attempt by NYSC would invoke the wrath of Nigerians and damage the integrity and regards the scheme had earned over the years.
