After serving in 2019, undercover journalist Umar Audu was able to infiltrate the system and get mobilized for the program, according to the National Youth Service Corps, NYSC.

Eddy Megwa, a spokesman for the NYSC, clarified that Audu circumvented the system by using multiple phone numbers.

Following Umar’s account of his rapid four-year degree completion and subsequent mobilization for the NYSC system, Megwa now explains how he did it.

In an appearance on Channels Tv’s Sunrise Daily, Megwa did say that the NYSC was trying to prevent similar incidents in the future.

The problem, as far as Megwa is concerned, is not that there aren’t safeguards to prevent system breaches.

The undercover reporter had already served in the program, so the system rejected him when he first entered his data.

The system finally accepted him when he adjusted his phone number and email address. Osun State was his first posting.

“He was on a mission, and he accomplished that by himself. We will make sure this does not happen again by reviewing the situation.

There is no list of recent grads that we can use for the scheme.

“All we have to go on are the lists that the university senates send us with their anticipated graduation rates.”
