NYSC Director-General, Brigadier General Shuaibu Ibrahim has advocated for greater partnership with Nigeria Medical Association in curbing the problem of fake medical reports being presented for registration during Orientation Course.

The DG made this disclosure while receiving the leadership of the association during a courtesy visit to the National Directorate Headquarters of the Scheme in Abuja.

General Ibrahim, who described the issue of fake medical reports as worrisome, expressed the determination of the Scheme to leverage on the provisions of NYSC Act to ensure that only qualified Nigerian graduates who are medically fit participate in the National Service.

While welcoming the decision of Nigeria Medical Association to work with NYSC in addressing the challenge of fake medical reports, the DG stressed that the Scheme would soon constitute a medical board made up of members from relevant stakeholders to authenticate medical reports before the mobilization of eligible graduates.

Earlier, the Secretary General of Nigeria Medical Association, Dr. Olumuyiwa Odusote lamented that the issue of fake medical report undermines the ideals, philosophy and operations of the NYSC Scheme and the nation at large.

He pledged the association's commitment to work with the NYSC to address the problem in addition to providing mentorship for Corps Doctors, material support for Orientation Camp Clinics, sensitization and other preventive medicine or techniques that would improve healthcare delivery for Corps Members and other Nigerians.
