The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has explained how Umar Audu, an undercover reporter, accessed its system and became involved in the program after completing his service in 2019.

According to NYSC spokesman Eddy Megwa, Audu bypassed the system by using multiple phone numbers.

Megwa’s explanation follows Umar’s account of how he completed a four-year degree in less than two months and then was called up for the NYSC program.

Megwa did state that the NYSC was striving to prevent similar incidents in the future, though, during her appearance on Channels TV, Sunrise Daily.

According to Megwa: “It is not that we don’t have checks and balances in place to detect possible breaches of the system.

“When the undercover reporter first put in his data, the system rejected him because he had served in the scheme before.

“He later changed his email address and his phone number which made the system to accept him. And he was initially posted to Osun State.

“He did that because he was out for a particular purpose. We are looking at the situation and ensure that it does not happen again.

“We don’t have a database of graduates to serve in the scheme.

“We only rely on the lists sent to us by the senates of the various universities stating the number of graduates to expect from them”.
