In a groundbreaking move, the National Information Technology Development Agency (NITDA) has revealed its innovative initiative to employ blockchain technology for the verification of National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) certificates.

Yusuf Kashafu, the Director-General of NITDA, made the significant announcement during the stakeholders’ policy dialogue event focused on the nationwide implementation of blockchain technology, held in Lagos on Wednesday.

To effectively tackle the persistent challenges of certificate forgery and fraudulent issuance, NITDA has initiated a collaborative effort with Brigadier-General Yusha’u Ahmed, the recently appointed Director-General of NYSC. This partnership aims to pioneer the creation of an advanced certificate authentication system built upon blockchain technology.

Highlighting the gravity of the situation, Kashafu emphasized that the authenticity of NYSC certificates has been a growing concern due to the rampant cases of forgery. He further underscored the potential of blockchain technology to revolutionize the verification process for certificates.

Kashafu elaborated, stating, “Given the pressing need to combat the prevalent issue of counterfeit NYSC certificates within Nigeria, we are harnessing the capabilities of blockchain to establish a secure and unalterable system. This system will enable individuals, institutions, and employers to effortlessly verify the legitimacy of NYSC certificates.”
