For absconding, 14 corps members to repeat service in Ondo

Fourteen corps members who absconded during the service year will repeat the exercise in Ondo state.

The were recommended for remobilisation subject to approval of the Directorate Headquarters, Abuja.

The Ondo State Coordinator of the National Youth Service Corps, Mrs Grace Akpabio disclosed this in her farewell address to the 2018 Batch ‘C’ (Stream 2) corps members who were discharged from the national service.

About 1,313 corps members had completed the one year mandatory service to their fatherland in the state.

The coordinator, however, said 18 of the number were sanctioned for disobeying the rules and regulations of the corps.

In her message sent through the assistant directors in all the local government areas of the state, Akpabio said out of the corps members that received certificates of national service, three got state honour awards and 15 collected state coordinator’s commendation certificates.

She  urged outgoing corps members to use the training acquired during service to “advance their cause for better today and guaranteed tomorrow.”

“I want you to face tomorrow with zeal and determination to succeed in whatever capacity you may choose to make a decent living. Tap the several opportunities that abound in the country and become the next generation of entrepreneurs and successful business moguls,” Akpabio charged.
