The Coordinator, National Youth Service Corps, NYSC, Lagos State, Mr. Cyril Akhanameh has said 45 corps members, who absconded during their service year will repeat the service.
He spoke on Thursday during the NYSC’s passing out programme.
His words: “Forty-five corps members will repeat their service year due to physical absence from their places of primary assignments.”
“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.”
