The Coordinator, National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) in Kano, Alhaji Ladan Baba, has revealed that two corp members lost their lives during the course of their service to natural causes.
The Coordinator started this to newsmen during the passing out of 2,682 Batch A corps members in Kano.
He revealed further that 9 corp members of Batch A will repeat the one year service to the nation.
According to him, the corp members in question absconded from service and as such will be punished. He added that 21 other corp members would have their service year extended for various offences.
Baba added that, “these corps members will definitely repeat their service year for absconding from their places of primary assignment and it’s either they will not be paid, or be paid half of the allowance.”
According to Baba, a committee is currently working to reward some of the corps members who excelled during the service year at their places of primary assignment and contributing to their host communities.
“I wish to commend all security agencies in the state for ensuring the safety of the corps members during the Presidential, National Assembly, Governorship and State Assembly elections.
“Also, I commend the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for ensuring free, fair and credible election in the state, but am calling on them to pay the corps members as they promised to do so before their passing out,” he said.
