Twenty-two corps members who served in Ondo State have received sanctions from the National Youth Service Corps, NYSC, for committing different infractions and breaking the rules governing the program during their service year.
During the passing out ceremony for the 2021 batch “B” (Stream one) corps members conducted in Akure, the state capital, Mrs. Victoria Ani, the state’s NYSC coordinator, disclosed this.
Eight corps members would have their service extended, while 14 members who skipped out on duty would have to repeat it, according to Mrs. Ani, subject to Directorate Headquarters’ permission in Abuja.
However, the NYSC coordinator said that two corps members who stood out above and beyond had received State Honours Awards.
She advised the corps members to refrain from being impolite because rudeness would get them nowhere but politeness would open doors that their degree or credentials could be able to open for them.
The state government would make sure that the numerous initiatives carried out by some of the corps members would be maintained to withstand the test of time, the governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu promised in a message during the event.
