The management of the National Youth Service Corps, Nasarawa State has said it would not spare any corps member, who comes to the state with forged certificates.
The NYSC coordinator, Mrs. Ramatu Sanda added that anyone caught would be arrested, handed over to the police and prosecuted accordingly without any compromise.
Sanda handed out the warning during an interview with journalists shortly after the swearing-in of the 2019 batch “B” corps members deployed to the state.
The swearing-in held at the Magaji Dan Yamusa NYSC permanent orientation camp in Keffi on Thursday.
The state coordinator, however, reiterated the management personal commitment to work in collaboration with the State Government to ensure that they improve the welfare of the corps members serving across the 13 Local Government Areas and 18 development areas of the state.
