As the 2017 Batch, A stream 1 corps members complete their youth service program on Thursday, April 12, 2018, the management of the National Youth Service Corps has explained why it made a decision to hold a full ceremonial passing out parade, POP for them.

Gombe State has been in the heart of the North-East region where Boko Haram insurgents have slowed down social activities and in some cases stopped Government and other business activities.

He said that two who belonged to Stream 1 would receive the Chairman's Award while one would be conferred with the state Honours Award during the 2017 Batch A Stream 11 passing out.

Holding the ceremony in the State, he said, was a clear testimony to the dedication and commitment of Governor Ibrahim Hassan Dankwambo and other security agencies who worked day and night to secure the state.

He, however, regretted the death of two of the Corps members, Abbas Bala and Charity Garba, who lost their lives during the service year.

According to the Niger State Coordinator, arms Theresa Ibukun Arokoyo, the full ceremonial passing out parade was suspended across the country because NYSC could not assure the security of the corps members.

He urged them to think creatively, adding, "for most of you that took the skill acquisition and entrepreneurship development programme seriously, the sky will be your limit".

As thousands of the 2017 batch "A" corps members across the country wound up the one year mandatory service to the country, five died during the service year.

He said the erred corps members were not among the 1,659 who passed out from the scheme in the state.

He commended the corps members who initiated and executed projects of felt needs and benefit to their host communities during the scheme.

He advised the corps members to utilise what they had learnt during the service year to become entreprenuers and employers of labour.

He said: "Corps members will be involved in all aspects of farming and crop production".

The coordinator said that in spite of discussion the scheme had with corps employers not to reject corps members, the NYSC was still faced with the problem every year.

The governor, who was represented by the Head of Service, Mrs Susan Oluwole, commended the corps members for the successful completion of the compulsory national service.

"Out of this number, 993 corps members relocated out of Kebbi State, while 110 relocated into Kebbi State".
