11 NYSC members to repeat service year in A’Ibom – state coordinator

Eleven Corps members in the 2019 Batch “B’’ Stream 2 who were to Akwa Ibom would repeat their service for misconduct during the period.

The State Coordinator of the National Youth Service Year (NYSC), Mr Julius Amusan, made this known in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria to mark the passing out in Uyo on Thursday.

Amusan said that out of the 1, 725 corps members sent to the state, three would have to repeat the service for abscondment while eight of them would have to face extension of service from one to four months for absenteeism, among other offences.

“Also, during the service year under review, three corps members absconded from service and have been recommended for outright repeat of service year whenever they resurface.

“There are eight others that committed various degrees of misconduct ranging from unauthorised journeys to absenteeism and other acts not in conformity with the NYSC bye laws.

“They will serve extension of service ranging from one to four months,” Amusan said.

The state coordinator said that due to the coronavirus pandemic, corps members would collect their discharge certificate from their different local government areas.

Amusan commended some corps members for their exemplary behaviours, saying that they conducted themselves within the ambit of the law and lived up to the ideals of the scheme.

He charged the outgoing corps members to make use of the lessons they had learnt during the service as their guiding principles.

“Life after service may not have presented a rosy picture, especially in this global pandemic and dire unemployment but the courage and resilience the corps members will put into it matter a lot.

“The various skills they have been exposed to in the last one year would serve as a launching pad to overcoming immediate challenge, as they go into the labour market,” he said.

The state coordinator urged corps members to use the knowledge acquired from Skill Acquisition and Entrepreneurship Development (SAED) to develop themselves and become employers of labour.
