No fewer than twenty-five National Youth Service Corps’ members serving in Delta State are to repeat their service year, while nineteen others absconded out of a total of 2, 838 corps’ members of the 2017 Batch “A” stream 1.

The State Coordinator of the NYSC, Mr. Omotade Ayodele Benjamine clarified this at the weekend in Asaba, said that three corps members out of the 2, 838 who passed out, served meritoriously, and were awarded with various awards. He, however, added that ” 25 NYSC members failed the extant laws while 19 absconded from service”.

According to him: “While two out of the three selected corps members who belong to stream 1 received the chairman’s award, the other one got a cash reward”.

But the state governor, Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa at the passing out ceremony in Cenotaph Asaba, said that corps members cannot be more needed than now in answering the question of unification, and the need for peace in Nigeria.

The governor explained that in opening a vista for cobwebling of ethnicity on Nigeria, it makes it a very potent unifying tool, and called on the corps’ members that in spite of the myriad security challenges, they should remain one.
