  • if you are above 30 years
  • If you have served in the Armed Forces, SSS or Police Forces of Nigeria for more than nine months
  • If you have received any national award/honor (for example, from OON)
If you fall into any of these categories, you will be released from service and you will be issued a certificate of exemption or exclusion. This applies to both Nigerian and foreign graduates.
