NYSC Saga: LP Urges IGP To Conclude Mbah’s Investigation

Listen to article

The Labour Party (LP) has urged the Inspector General of Police (IGP) Usman Alkali Baba to immediately conclude the investigation into the alleged National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) certificate forgery by the Enugu State Governor-elect, Peter Mbah.

The Labour Party asked the Police boss to immediately conclude the investigation and write back to the Court which ordered the investigation.

Speaking during a press conference yesterday, the Labour Party through their acting national publicity secretary Obiorah Ifoh, said Mbah should stop applying delay tactics in the case filed by the party in court.

“These are the facts and figures of the state of affairs in the case of forgery of certificate by Mr Peter Ndubuisi Mbah, the INEC-declared Governor-elect of Enugu state.

“We must all join hands as patriotic citizens to hold those who seek to lead us accountable. Forging public documents and compromising security and judicial institutions in a bid to conceal the facts must be condemned by all.

“By his own hands, on 26th June, 2006, Mr Peter Mbah wrote in a statement under caution before the EFCC that he served in Lagos during the 2002/2003 Batch A and that his place of primary assignment was in the Chambers of Nnaemeka P. Agu. At other times, Mr. Mbah has also at other times stated that his primary assignment was in the Chambers of Victor Udeh of Udeh & Associates. Mr. Peter Mbah also released a letter purported to have been a clearance letter from Udeh & Associates which was not signed by any known lawyer.

“Law Firms do not sign letters, lawyers do. Where exactly did Mr Peter Mbah serve? In the Statement under reference, Mr Peter Mbah insisted that Victor Udeh was never his boss but just a family friend, yet the same Victor Udeh’s chambers purporting to clear him that he had conducted his NYSC assignment and should be paid by the Corps.

“How exactly did Mr. Peter Mbah get the Certificate he issued to himself? In the coming days, the Labour Party will do all within its powers to prove that Mr. Peter Mbah was not qualified to contest the election of Governor of Enugu State, having presented a forged certificate to INEC and did not win the election,” the party said adding that they will petition the chief justice of Nigeria on the matter.

“It is therefore consequent on the above that the Labour Party has resolved to Petition the Chief Justice of Nigeria and the Chairman of the National Judicial Council over the funny court orders being issued by judges in this case.

“Petition the Chief Judge of the Federal High Court to transfer suit No. FHC/ABJ/CS/611/2023 from the Court handling it to another Court.

Petition the Legal Practitioners Disciplinary Committee to investigate allegations of forum shopping by Mr Peter Mbah and his lawyers,” the party said.
