Justice Nyang Ekwo of the Federal High Court in Abuja has confirmed the authenticity of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) certificate of Governor Peter Mbah of Enugu State as validly issued by the corps.
Delivering judgment this Monday, Justice Ekwo held that the evidence before the court showed that the governor though was mobilized for service in 2001, completed it in 2003.
The court stated that Mbah midway into his service, sought and after receiving permission from the NYSC to attend the Nigeria Law School, was reinstated into the corps in 2003.
Justice Ekwo concluded that the NYSC was mischievous and acted in bad faith by denying Mbah’s certificate.
The court which found the Director General and the NYSC guilty of misrepresentation of material facts, subsequently awarded the sum of N5 million damages against them.
