The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) in Nasarawa state, according to the Vanguard News, has recommended that seven of its corps members posted to the state face disciplinary measures for committing different offences during their service year.
The Nasarawa State NYSC Coordinator, Mrs. Zainab Isah, made this known in an interview on Thursday in Lafia. She said the affected corps members would face punishment after final ratification by the Nasarawa state NYSC Governing Board.
According to her, some of them faced the possibility of having their service year extended by various periods for contravening the NYSC bye-laws.
“Some corps members erred during the service year. We have seven corps members that have disciplinary cases.
“Some of them missed the monthly allowances because they embarked on unauthorized journeys and others left their places of primary assignment without permission among other offences.
“For those who absconded, the allowances they missed are what would be used to pay them as they served their punishment and the period of the extension depended on the gravity of the misconduct,” she stated
