NYSC indicts 62 corps members over offences
The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) in Anambra State has recommended that 42 corps members, who defaulted in the four cardinal programmes of the scheme, should report for correctional measures.
The state Coordinator, Mrs. Blessing Iruma, took the stand, yesterday, at the Alex Ekwueme square, Awka, during the passing out parade of 2021 Batch B Stream 1 corps members, insisting that some of the culprits would have their national service extended, while others would repeat their service year.
Iruma also stated that three corps members were recommended for state honours awards, while 11 others would receive the state coordinator’s letter of commendation.
She restated the scheme’s readiness to partner with the state government towards grassroots development, just as she reminded corps members’ employers to send in their requests early for improved service delivery.
In his address, Governor Chukwuma Soludo announced the loss of a female corps member in the course of her service in the state.
SIMILARLY, 20 corps members, comprising 15 men and 55 women, would repeat the entire service year, while 12 others, including six men and six women, would serve an extension of service ranging from one to four months on half-pay in Ebonyi State.
Ebonyi NYSC Coordinator, Mrs. Bamai Mercy, stated this in Abakaliki during the passing out of the 2021 Batch B Stream 1 corps members.
She congratulated the corps members for successfully completing their service year on a good note.
Mrs Mercy said the offences of the corps members were ranging from abscondment from service to unauthorised journeys, as well as other violations of the NYSC rules.
