The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has extended the services of 32 corps members in the 2016 Batch A stream 1 posted in Ekiti State to three months for various misconducts such as truancy.
The NYSC Coordinator in Ekiti State, Mrs Eze Ukagha, disclosed this on Friday in Ado-Ekiti during the passing out parade of the remaining 1,380 corps members.
Ukagha said that two out of the 1,422 corps members posted to the state for the batch, however, received state honours award for hard work and commitment to the values of the scheme.
The coordinator said NYSC would not tolerate any act capable of undermining its aims and objectives.
She, however, said during the one year service, the corps members acquired entrepreneurial skills that would enable them to be independent after their service and be employers of labour, rather than job seekers.
Ukagha said that most of the corps members in the batch demonstrated unalloyed patriotism during the service year and were worthy ambassadors of their fatherland
The state coordinator, therefore, called on them to build on the existing foundation of the scheme by contributing their quota to the development of the country.
