The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) in Osun State has discharged a total of 1091 members of the 2020 Batch B Stream 1a and 1b who have satisfactorily completed the one-year mandatory national service.
This was made known by the Osun State Coordinator of the NYSC, Mrs. Winifred Shokpeka, during a low-key ceremony that took place Thursday across the 30 local government areas and an area office of the state.
She also revealed that a total number of four absconders were recorded for the stream and 12 corps members had their service year extended.
The State Coordinator who stated that the service year was generally successful added that from the records that were handed over to her from her predecessor, Ayodele Adegoke, there was no record of accidents or death recorded.
While expressing satisfaction with the conduct of the 2020 Batch B Stream 1a and 1b corps members, Shokpeka stated that she was optimistic that the subsequent service year is going to be smooth.
According to her, “Your reports are very satisfactory thereby qualifying you for the fourth and last phase of the service year which we all are witnessing today.
“Reports of your selflessness, devotion to duty and resilience has reached me. Some of you left legacies in your places of primary assignments through the group and individual projects embarked upon thereby projecting the image and relevance of the scheme. We say thank you.”
She disclosed that the same level of commitment and dedication to service and welfare that has always been prevalent in the state was going to be extended to the serving corps members and the 2021 Batch C Stream 1 prospective corps members who are currently undergoing their orientation course.
