45 Corps Members in Lagos To Repeat Service Year For Going AWOL – NYSC


As the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) organised passing-out-parades (POP) for the 2014/2015 ‘Batch C’ corps members across the country on Thursday, the Lagos State NYSC coordinator, Mr Cyril Akhanameh announced that 45 corps members, who had absconded during their service year would have to repeat the service.

Akhanameh said: “45 corps members will repeat their service year due to physical absence from their places of primary assignments.”

The Lagos state coordinator explained that “Many of the corps members left their places of primary assignments for over three months without permission, adding that when queried, they could not give any genuine reason for being absent.”

“The level of their punishments, he noted, will be determined by the level of their offences, stating that many of them will repeat, serve for three or four months in any part of the states that NYSC Authorities will choose.”
