Upon enquiry as to my status identifying with NYSC, I was educated that because of my residency history and having surpassed the age of thirty (30), I was exempted from the necessity to serve. Until late occasions, that remained my comprehension.

I at that point got the authentication being referred to. Having never worked in NYSC, visited the premises, been conscious of nor acquainted with their activities, I had no motivation to speculate that the declaration was definitely not honest to goodness. To be sure, I exhibited that endorsement at the 2011 Ogun State House of Assembly and in 2015 for Directorate of State Services (DSS) Clearance and in addition to the National Assembly to screen. In any case, as somebody completely dedicated to a culture of honor and responsibility I have chosen to leave with impact from Friday, fourteenth September, 2018.
