The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has carried out this year’s annual passing out and winding up ceremony for the 2015 outgoing Batch ‘B’ stream ‘II’ corps members nationwide.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) gathered that three out of the 1,152 members of the Scheme, deployed to Sokoto State, are to repeat the service year.
Speaking on Friday in Sokoto, the NYSC State Coordinator, Mr Thomas Yamma, said that the affected corps members were punished for absconding during the service year.
Yamma, however, lauded the state government for clearing the backlog of the four months arrears of the state allowances, from July to October, 2016.
The coordinator further commended the Sultanate Council of Sokoto and the entire people of the state for their sustained support to the scheme.
Yamma further admonished the outgoing corps members to continue to be good ambassadors of the scheme and their families.
