Out of the One thousand, seven hundred and twelve Corps members for the 2018 Batch B (stream) deployed to Ondo for their service year, Seventeen of them have been sanctioned.
The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) Coordinator in the State Grace Akpabio disclosed this while presenting certificates to the Corps Members who had completed their one-year mandatory service.
Ten Corps members would repeat their service year for abscondment while seven will have their service year extended – Akpabio said.
The sanctioned Corps members were in the habit of engaging in the act of indiscipline, against the NYSC code and ethics.
Akpabio recounted in her speech the trainings, various skill acquisitions and vocations NYSC had invested in the lives of Corps members to prepare them for the future after passing out.
She ended by saying, ” Your service year has provided you with a lifetime opportunity to make a decent living from your sweat and stay away from bad practices.”
