The National Youth Service Corps has announced that three corps members who abandoned their duty posts will repeat the service year while two others will get an extension.
Gombe state NYSC coordinator, Mr Dawut Jidda while speaking at a Passing-Out Parade of 2022 Batch “B” Stream I corps members stated that no fewer than 526 passed out in Gombe State.
Jidda said the disciplinary measures faced by the corps members were issued after facing the Corps Disciplinary Committee, adding that the measures taken were in line with the NYSC bye-law.
While congratulating the outgoing corps members, the state coordinator advised them to imbibe the culture of starting small, adding that great things often start with little things.
“The big names we have in the fashion industry, theatre and business world started from somewhere,” he said.
Jidda also commended corps members who contribute to community development during their service year.
“There are awards for outstanding corps members in community development, which include Local Government award, State Honours award and Presidential Honours award.
“NYSC Gombe was ranked high at the just concluded Presidential Honours award; I have no doubt that a good number of you will be chosen for commendation when the need arises,” he said.
