Five 2019 batch B (Stream 1) National Youth Service Corps members are going to repeat their service year in Ondo state.
The five corps members were recommended for repeat of service pending ratification by Headquarters for absconding during service year.
Nine others will serve extension of service for misconduct during the service year.
The state coordinator of NYSC, Grace Akapbio disclosed this in her farewell message to the outgoing corps members. She charged them to strive to make Nigeria better.
The programme which was conducted under strict observance of COVID -19 protocol was devoid of fanfare, pomp and pageantry.
Mrs. Akpabio who personally monitored the issuance of Certificate of National Service, (CNS) to deserving members of the service corps at Akure South Local Government said that post COVID -19 era should have the patriotic Nigerians as architects of a better society.
“I wish to inform you that our resources, energy and talents should be unreservedly directed and dedicated to the ideals which enable a nation to rise up above its history and attain heights that would have normally and ordinarily been deemed unattainable”.
She said that she always believed that the youths constitute a dominant force for national growth and development and as such have very critical roles to play in the all-important task of nation building.
“Your invaluable contributions to your host communities bear eloquent testimony to your pivotal role in promoting and accelerating national development in virtually all sectors of the economy”.
