The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has issued a new certificate to Godwin Obaseki, governor of Edo State.
According to a letter dated 18th June 2020, signed by a NYSC official, Okonofua K N, on behalf of the NYSC DG, said the Governor’s previous certificate was cancelled due to error in his surname.
“I refer to your letter referenced EOG/ABI/99/VOL IV/172 dated 18th June, 2020, on the above subject matter please,” the letter read.
“I am directed to inform you that after investigation, the management of the National Youth Service Corps has approved that a new Certificate of National Service reflecting the Surname OBASEKI be produced as the earlier Certificate number 063107 dated 6th August, 1980 has been cancelled due to error in the surname i.e. OBASEK.
“Accept the assurances of the Director-General’s regard” the letter said.
The alphabet “I” in Obaseki’s surname was missing in the previous certificate issued by NYSC.
