No fewer than 65 National Youth Service Corps members would repeat their service year in various states for engaging in actions that contravened the bye-laws of the scheme in the country.
The development during the passing out parades that took place across the country on Thursday.
The offences committed by the sanctioned corps members include absconding from service, unauthorised journeys, and other miscellaneous offences that violated the laws of the scheme in Nigeria.
Speaking during the passing out parade in Abia State, the state Coordinator, NYSC, Jingi Denis, said nine of the 870 corps members of 2021 Batch A, Stream II, will repeat the service year for absconding from service.
Denis said the measure was in line with the NYSC rules and regulations.
