Bauchi: Corps members to repeat service year
The National Youths Service Corps (NYSC) has ordered three corps members deployed in Bauchi for the Batch ‘B’ Stream 1, 2021, to repeat their service year.
The NYSC coordinator in Bauchi, Namadi Abubakar, said two other corps members had their service year extended by two months for leaving their places of primary assignment without permission.
Mr Abubakar accused the errant corps members of “absconding and absenteeism.”
The affected corps members, he said, were among 1,152 who passed out on October 21, adding that they received the NYSC certificate of national service.
Meanwhile, he said 10 corps members got state honour awards for positively impacting their host communities through development projects.
He added that 40 others received commendation letters for their contributions.
The coordinator urged the corps members to take advantage of the skills acquired through the NYSC Skills Acquisition and Entrepreneurship Development programme to become gainfully employed.
“They must strive for self-realisation by utilising the skills acquired through the NYSC skills acquisition programme. I equally urged them not to engage in social vices,” noted Mr Abubakar. “They must endeavour to resist the temptation of involving in unholy activities such as terrorism, robbery, kidnapping, cultism, rape and other anti-state activities which will smear their image and that of their families.”
