The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has said it cannot pay the N30,000 minimum wage to corps members because it is yet to get such directive from the federal government.
The agency also said it will hand over fake graduates coming for mobilisation to the police for prosecution.
The NYSC Director-General, Shuaibu Ibrahim, said these during a media parley on Thursday in Abuja.
He said the NYSC Act stipulates that fake graduates are liable to two years in jail, after prosecution.
He said a corps producing institution will be blacklisted if it engages in this act.
“Let me reiterate our warning that any person who presents fake certificate in an attempt to get mobilised for service will be handed over to the security agencies for prosecution. We are working on those fake corps members. They will be arrested and prosecuted,” he said.
