The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has said Senator Stella Oduah (Anambra North) absconded and did not complete the mandatory one-year NYSC programme.
The NYSC stated this in a May 24, 2022 letter by its Director-General, marked NYSC/DHQ/PPRU/783/Vol III.
The letter, signed on the DG’s behalf by the Director, Press and Public Relations, Eddy Megwa, stated that Oduah was mobilised for national service in Lagos in the 1982/83 service year.
It claimed that she commenced her NYSC programme but absconded soon after orientation.
The letter was in response to an inquiry by a group known as the Concerned Anambra North PDP Stakeholders seeking to validate a claim that Oduah lost her NYSC certificate.
The NYSC said Oduah was thus, not qualified for the issuance of the NYSC Certificate.
