NYSC: 16 corps members to repeat service in Anambra

Sixteen members of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) serving in Anambra are to repeat their one year compulsory service while three others will serve various terms of disciplinary measures.

The Anambra NYSC Coordinator, Mr Ebenezer Olawale, made the disclosure on Thursday in Awka, the Anambra State capital.

He, however, said no formal passing out ceremony was held in the state.

Olawale noted that 2, 158 corps members successfully concluded their service year and were issued with discharge certificates.

On the upcoming Nov. 18 governorship polls in Anambra, the NYSC coordinator said that the body still had enough manpower to take care of its expected role in the election.

“There are no fewer than 8,000 corps members currently serving in the state,’’ he said.

He said the discharged corps members who wished to take part in the election were at liberty to stay back but no one was under compulsion to do so.

Meanwhile, the Director-General of the NYSC Brig.-Gen. Suleiman Kazaure, will visit Anambra to address corps members ahead of the governorship election.

Olawale told Newsmen that Kazuaure would hold a one-day interface with the corps members on November 7 alongside heads of other security agencies in Anambra at the Alex Ekweme Square in Awka.
