Fake NYSC Members Kicked Out Of Orientation Camp


nyscThe National Youth Service Corps in Niger State has identified and subsequently kicked out 281 fake corps members from the orientation camp.

The State’s coordinator of the National Youth Service Corps, Mr Stephen Ehoda-adi disclosed this while speaking to journalists shortly after 2014 Batch ‘B’ orientation exercise that took place in Paiko.

He said that the 281 fake corps members were unable to present their call-up letters, and were subsequently thrown out of the camp

Ehoda-adi also added that those affected had nothing to show as having qualified for admission into the camp.

The coordinator revealed that some of the fake corps members claimed that they misplaced their call-up letters when they were attacked by armed robbers on their way to the camp, while some only came to the camp with photocopies of their letters, which were unacceptable.

However, only 3,259 batch B corps members successfully completed their three weeks orientation in the state on Tuesday.

Another 230 corps members made up of pregnant and nursing mothers were disallowed from taking part in the normal routine during the three weeks orientation exercise.

While declaring the orientation camp closed, the governor of the state, Babangida Aliyu Mua’zu said despite the insecurity in the country caused by the activities of Boko Haram, the unity of the country was not negotiable.

Governor Babangida Aliyu said, though insurgency was threatening the relative peace in some parts of the country, the activities of the Boko Haram sects would soon be a thing of the past.
