Five corp members under the 2022 Batch B Stream 1 of the National UYouth Service Corps (NYSC) who served in Bauchi State will repeat the service year for breaching the scheme's rules and regulations.
This was announced on Thursday by the state coordinator, Rifkatu Yakubu, during the collection of certificates by corps members to make the end of their service year.
According to Yakubu, the erring corps members were sanctioned for abscondment and absenteeism from their various Places of Primary Assignment (PPA) during their service year.
The state coordinator stressed the scheme's intolerance for breaches, stating that it would not spare corps members found wanting.
She further disclosed that 10 other Corps members would face an extension of service for at least three weeks or one month for different misdeeds while serving.
Yakubu advised the passing out Corps members to reunite with their families immediately and avoid travelling at night.
“Those of you taking part in the post-camp Skills Acquisition and Entrepreneurship Development (SAED) training, if you have not completed, you can carry on and complete it and for those of you that have not learned any skills, I want to advise that you start something.
“During your service year, at the end of the month, no matter how small, you knew that alert will come in.
"But now that the service has come to an end, if you don’t involve yourself in doing something, honestly speaking, you will be demoralised and frustrated in life.
“Don’t cause your parents pain, because one of the worst things a parent can experience is to see his or her child as a graduate sleeping at home every morning and asking for what to eat, transport money to visit a friend and money for a recharge card.
“Your parents want to see you up in the morning going out to do something no matter how little you will get, it is better than staying at home doing nothing,” Yakubu said.
747 corps members however passed out in the state and were issued Certificates of National Service.
