Twenty six members of the 2012 Batch A National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) who served in Enugu State have received good performance award from the state government.
However, it is a different story for other eight corps members as they would be repeating their service for absconding from duty post within the period.
Also, six corps members had their service year extended for committing various offences.
The Deputy Governor of the State, Mr. Sunday Onyebuchi, who performed the passing out ceremony on Thursday at the state’s permanent orientation camp in Awgu, said the award bestowed on the 26 deserving corps members was to reward excellence.
Onyebuchi commiserated with the families of corps members that lost their lives in the course of national service and wished the out-going members best of luck.
In his farewell speech, the Enugu state NYSC coordinator Mr. Hillary Nasamu acknowledged the support of the state government and its people whom he said “provided conducive environment for corps members to accomplish their assignment”.
He thanked the state government for providing fund for the rehabilitation of the NYSC orientation camp.
