NYSC extends service year of 3 corp members in Gombe
The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has extended the service year of three corps members who abandoned their duty posts in Gombe State.
Gombe State NYSC coordinator, Mr Dawut Jidda, while speaking at the 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.
He congratulated the outgoing corps members and advised them to imbibe the culture of starting small, adding that great things often start with little things.
“Use your talents and ingenuity to add value to your life, community and the nation at large.
“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 the 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.
