2,045 NYSC members to pass out Thursday in Kwara


A total of 2,045 corps members are expected to pass out from the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) scheme after the completion of the mandatory one-year national service in Kwara.

Mr. Oladipo Morakinyo, the State NYSC Public Relations Officer, via a statement issued on Tuesday in Ilorin, said the ceremony would be low keyed.

“The management of the scheme scheduled a low-key passing out ceremony for the 2016 Batch B, Stream 1, for Thursday, November 2,” Morakinyo added.

He added that adequate arrangements have been made to issue the certificate of national service to the deserving corps members at some designated locations across the state.

Morakinyo said that three corps members that distinguished themselves during the service year were nominated for the NYSC State Honours Award, while another eight will receive commendation certificates.

He added that 25 corps members would be sanctioned for committing various offences during the service year.

“They were sanctioned for various offences committed during the service year; some outrightly absconded from the service, while others contravened various sections of the NYSC bye-laws.”

Morakinyo announced that three corps members lost their lives during the service year.
