Taraba Coordinator, National Youth Service Corps, Mr. Tumba Freeman, yesterday said that three 2014 Batch `B’ corps members (names withheld) would repeat their service year over misconduct.
Freeman made this known at a news conference in Jalingo, the state capital saying that the culprits were punished for absenteeism at their places of primary assignments for three consecutive months.
According to him, three other corps members died in the course of the service as a result of medical complications which they had in an accident during the service year.
The coordinator said that the agency had given awards to 10 corps members for their meritorious service during the service year.
“We rewarded them for their excellent service which they totally deserved.
“It may interest you to know that Taraba came second in terms of the number of corps members that received honors in the country.
“What we are simply doing is to recognise their contributions in community development, and to encourage other corps members to follow suit’’, Freeman said.NAN
