He explained that NYSC made a spelling error on his surname, adding that he later wrote to the NYSC, notifying it of the error and asking it to correct the mistake and reissue him one with his correct name.

He said the NYSC later corrected it and reissued him with an exemption certificate bearing his correct name.

He spoke through his counsel, Mr. Clement Kekemeke, during a media briefing in Abuja on Sunday.

Kekemeke said, “The position of my client is that he never forged NYSC exemption certificate.“
