Eight National Youth Corp members serving in Ilorin have their service extended as a result of
various offences they commit during the service year.
NYSC State Coordinator, Mr Amafuele Remigius made this known on Thursday in Ilorin during the Passing Out parade (POP) of the 2017 Batch ‘A’ Stream 1 of the scheme at the Metropolitan Square.
He said a total of 1, 790 Corp members passed out after a year national service to the nation.
The State Coordinator said three Corps members received the prestigious NYSC State Honors Award.
“On a sad note, we lost one of the outgoing Corp members while on national service,” the Coordinator said.
The State Governor, Abdulfatah Ahmed, speaking at the passing out parade, enjoined the outgoing Corp members to make use of the skill they acquired during the service year.
The governor, who was represented by the Head of Service, Mrs Susan Oluwole commended the Corp members for the successful completion of the compulsory national service.
Ahmed advised the Corps members to look inward and bring to use all the various skills they were taught with the aim of becoming employers of labour, rather than seeking white collar
jobs that were not available.
He wished them success in their future endeavours and extended the appreciation of the host communities where they did their primary assignments.
The governor’s representative later presented awards Award to three deserving Corps members nominated for NYSC State Award.
