Peter Mbah: Abuja High Court orders NYSC not to revoke the Discharge Certificate.

The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) and its Director, Corps Certification, Ibrahim Muhammad, have been restrained by a Federal High Court in Abuja from disclaiming or disowning the NYSC certificate of national service issued to Enugu State Governor-elect, Barrister Mbah Peter, for the time being.

Mbah was elected governor of Enugu State on the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) platform on March 18.

ChinyKo reports that the NYSC had in February written a letter signed by Ibrahim Muhammed claiming that the NYSC certificate belonging to Mbah was not issued by the Corps.

However, Justice Inyang Edem Ekwo on Monday in Abuja issued the restraining order while ruling on an ex parte motion brought by Emeka Ozoani, on behalf of Mbah.

Mbah is arguing that, upon completion of NYSC service, he was issued the certificate of National Service No. A.808297 dated 6th January 2003.

Meanwhile, Justice Ekwo has fixed May 22 for hearing from all other parties to the suit.
