NYSC Director of Press Mrs. Adeyemi Adenike, said in a statement issued in Abuja Monday, that that the scheme would however, investigate the origin of the allegedly forged exemption certificate purportedly being used by the Minister.

“Checking our records, Mrs. Adeosun did apply for an exemption certificate. We shall investigate the origin of the purported exemption certificate in question,” Adenike restated.
