Reasons for Repeat Service:
Obim explained that out of the 33 members who will repeat their service, 14 of them had absconded, which is in accordance with the Act and Bye-laws of the NYSC.
1Additionally, 19 corps members had their service year extended due to their lackadaisical attitude during their service period.
Successful Disengagement of Corps Members:

Advice for the Corps Members:
Obim urged the corps members to apply the training and skills they acquired during their service year in their future endeavors.
He emphasized the importance of hard work and encouraged them to utilize the skills gained through in-camp and post-camp programs, including entrepreneurship development classes.
Embracing Relationships and Shunning Corruption:
The State Coordinator highlighted the significance of the friendships and bonds formed during the service year and encouraged the corps members to continue supporting one another as they transition into society.
He urged them to reject corruption and social vices, emphasizing that such behaviors only hinder progress for both the nation and the individuals involved.
Being Ambassadors of the Nation:
Obim concluded by urging the corps members to maintain their status as good ambassadors of Nigeria, their families, and the NYSC.
He emphasized the importance of upholding positive values and contributing to the betterment of society.
As the NYSC members in Osun State complete their service year, some will face the consequence of repeat service, while others successfully conclude their obligations.
The state coordinator commended their efforts and advised them to apply their skills and maintain strong relationships as they move forward in their personal and professional lives.
The emphasis on integrity and being ambassadors of the nation serves as a reminder of the responsibilities they carry beyond their service year.Share on Facebook «||» Share on Twitter «||» Share on Reddit «||» Share on LinkedIn
