NYSC extends service year of 33 corps members in Nasarawa

No fewer than 33 corps members of the 2021 National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) in Nasarawa State are to repeat their service year for absconding from their Places of Primary Assignment (PPA) and other disciplinary issues during the service year.

The state coordinator of the scheme, Mr Abdullahi Jikamshi, revealed this in Lafia, the state capital, on Thursday during the Passing out Parade (POP) for the 2021 Batch “A” corps members.

He explained that the affected corps members would have their service year extended or repeat the entire service year depending on the gravity of the acts of indiscipline committed.

Jikamshi said the scheme was already preparing to receive another batch of corps members in a week’s time.

Earlier, the Governor of Nasarawa State, Abdullahi Sule, who was represented by the Commissioner for Youths and Sports Development, Mr Lucky Yargwa, thanked the outgoing corps members for the invaluable and sacrificial service offered to the state.

In a related development, Kano State Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje has charged the outgoing 2021 Batch A Stream 1 NYSC members to be good ambassadors and exploit the goldmine in agriculture, manufacturing and other legitimate businesses with the aim of becoming self-reliant.

Governor Douye Diri of Bayelsa State also threw his weight behind the calls for the passage of the bill for the establishment of the NYSC Trust Fund.

In the same vein, the NYSC coordinator in Anambra State, Mrs Yetunde Baberinwa, announced that during the service year, five corps members died while 12 will repeat their service year for absenting themselves from camp.

According to her, out of the five deaths, three died during childbirth, one died from natural death, while the remaining one died in a road accident.

Baberinwa listed the names of those who died while in service to include Onoh Bless An/21A/2153, Owoh Mercy An/21A/3270, Mbam Timothy An/21A/1653, Ozor Anthony An/21A/2098, and Tabele Mercy An/21A/3378.
