Three males and one female NYSC members of the 2020/2021 Batch ‘B’ Stream ‘I’ are to repeat their National Youth Service year in Ebonyi State.

The State NYSC Coordinator, Mrs Bamai Mercy Dawuda, made this known in an interview with journalists during the event at Nkaleke, the Abakaliki Local Government Headquarters, on Friday.

Mrs Bamai said the NYSC in the state discharged out a total of 667 corps members - 345 males and 322 females of the 2020/2021 Batch ‘B’ Stream “I’.

She also disclosed that about 28 corps members – 17 males and 11 females bagged an extension of service while only 4 of them – 3 males and one female would repeat their service year due to abscondment from duty.

The State Coordinator had earlier in her speech, expressed joy over the majority of the corpers’ conduct during their service year in the state, and charged them to utilize the skills acquired while pursing greater opportunities to harness their futures.

She said: “I want to thank God for the most of the roles some of you played. I want to tell you that the certificate of the National Youth Service Corps, is not meant for everyone who came for service but you have to work for it.

“I told you about the allowances during your orientation course in the camp. You have to work for your allowances. That your employers gave you letters attested that you worked and that’s why you got your allowances being paid.

“And not only that, you passed out from the areas of your primary assignment successfully; there was no negative reports against you, but only a handful of you, because almost all that came to serve did well and you made us proud.

“Now, it is a passing out programme, I know it’s in a low key, but as you leave the NYSC, we expect you to be highly disciplined. Remember that self-discipline and good performance make head-ways in life. You must discipline yourselves and work hard to achieve a desired goals in the society.”

Bamai further charged the corps members to keep life styles that would make them to be worthy in characters and learning, and further encouraged them to continue imbibing spirit of hard work and resilience in anywhere they found themselves following their passing out from service.

She also advised them to be a good ambassador of NYSC by promoting the core values of the scheme, especially in building national integration and encouraging self-reliance.

Some of the corps members including Salisu Idris, Jennifer Eleonu, Adebola Adebayo, Daniel Yakubu, among others while interacting with newsmen commended the NYSC for their robust treatment and equally affirmed that the scheme widely contributes to the nation building and integration.
