NYSC Sanctions 8 Corp Members, Extends Their Service Year

The National Youth Service Corp has descended on eight members

serving in Ilorin, Kwara State with their service year extended as a result of

various offences they committed.

 

NYSC State Coordinator, Mr Amafuele Remigius made this

known on Thursday in Ilorin during the Passing Out parade

(POP) of the 2017 Batch ‘A’ Stream 1 of the scheme at the

Metropolitan Square.

 

He said a total of 1, 790 Corp members passed out after a

year national service to the nation.

 

The State Coordinator said three Corps members received the

prestigious NYSC State Honours Award.

 

“On a sad note, we lost one of the outgoing Corp members

while on national service,” the Coordinator said.

 

Governor Abdulfatah Ahmed, speaking at the passing

out parade, enjoined the outgoing Corp members to make use

of the skill they acquired during the service year.

 

The governor, who was represented by the Head of Service,

Mrs Susan Oluwole commended the Corp members for the

successful completion of the compulsory national service.

 

Ahmed advised the Corps members to look inward and bring to

use all the various skills they were taught with the aim of

becoming employers of labour, rather than seeking white collar

jobs that were not available.

 

He wished them success in their future endeavours and

extended the appreciation of the host communities where they

did their primary assignments.

 

The governor’s representative later presented awards to the

three Corps members nominated for NYSC State Award.
