About 23 members of The National Youth Service Corp in Anambra, have been slammed with a repetition of their service year in the state.
This was announced on Thursday, April 29, by Blessing Iruma, who is the The State NYSC Coordinator, during the passing out ceremony of the 2021 Batch ‘A’ (stream11), corps members held at the Washington Memorial Grammar School, Onitsha, Anambra State.
Blessing Iruma, while congratulating the outgoing corps members, added five of the NYSC members will have their service periods extended in the state. She stressed that all 28 of them, defaulted at various times during their service year and urged them to turn a new leaf. She said;
“My dear corps members, as you go forward in life, I urged you to shun corruption and sharp practices, internet fraud, get-rich-quick syndrome, and other vices that can only destroy your lives. Remember that God rewards decency and hard work.
“NYSC as a scheme, will stop at nothing to recognize and celebrate hard work and accomplishments, be it academic, entrepreneurial, or innovations.
“I am aware of the usual fear of unemployment that grips some unprepared ones but the scheme has prepared you with skills and funding options for post-service challenges.
“Endeavor to remain focused and relevant at all times. I, therefore, charge you to step into the world with confidence and the Almighty God will definitely bless the work of your hands if you are diligent.”
