Usman Yakubu-Yaro, the NYSC coordinator in Sokoto, says five corps members of the 2022 Batch B stream 2 will serve various punishments while one is to repeat the service year.

Mr Yakubu-Yaro disclosed this on Thursday during the collection of Certificates of National Service by corps members.

He said the affected corps members were sanctioned for various offences, including absenteeism during their service year and noted that the scheme had zero tolerance for truancy and would not hesitate to punish any erring corps member.

According to him, the sanctioned corps members will have their service year extended for at least three weeks or one month for various misconducts.

He advised those who have completed their service year to utilize the skills acquired during the Skill Acquisition and Entrepreneurship Development (SAED) scheme as well be good ambassadors to the nation at large.

He further urged them to be part of the post-camp Skills Acquisition and Entrepreneurship Development training to ensure completion.

The NYSC coordinator said two distinguished corps members would receive the Sultan Sa’ad Abubakar meritorious awards.

He commended the Sokoto government and sultanate council for the support accorded to the NYSC Secretariat and corps members at all times.

Four hundred ninety-eight corps members completed their service year and were issued discharge certificates.
