Court Declares Mbah’s Certificate Authentic, Fines NYSC N5m

Gov. Peter Mbah of Enugu State

A Federal High Court sitting in Abuja has dismissed the allegation of forgery against the Enugu State Governor, Peter Mbah over his National Youth Service Corps (NYSC).

Delivering judgment on the matter on Monday, Justice Inyang Ekwo held that the certificate presented to the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, by Mbah, was authentic and validly issued by the NYSC.

The is as the court imposed a fine of N5 million on NYSC for disowning the NYSC discharge certificate held by Mbah was fake.

Recall that Mbah sued the NYSC and its Director, Corps Certification, Ibrahim Muhammad, for publishing a disclaimer, denying the issuance of a discharge certificate issued to him on January 6, 2003.

But the NYSC, in its preliminary objection dated May 19 and filed May 22, sought an order dismissing or striking out the suit for want of jurisdiction and competence.
