Enugu Governor Wins NYSC Case

Must read

The Governor of Enugu State, Dr. Peter Mbah has won his case against the National Youth Service Corps, NYSC, as the Federal High Court in Abuja has restrained the corps from further denying certificate issued to the Governor.

Justice Inyang Ekwo, in a judgment on Monday, held that evidence before the court showed that Mbah properly participated in the NYSC programme and that he was issued a certificate of completion by the NYSC.

Justice Ekwo held that the NYSC misrepresented facts in its claim that it did not issue the certificate Mbah submitted to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) before the last governorship election.

The judge faulted the NYSC for not producing before the court, two files containing information about Mbah’s participation in the programme, noting that it (NYSC) handled the case with levity.

He awarded N5million in damages against the NYSC, and on favour of Mbah.
