And that was the case for 21 Corps members from Batch ‘B’ Streams I and II serving in Kano State, who will spend extra time in Kano State for miscellaneous acts of indiscipline, the chief of which is AWOL (absence without leave).
The State Coordinator for the state, Alhaji Ladan Baba, made this known during an interview with NAN yesterday. “Eight out of the 21 corps members are from the Stream one, 13 of them are from the Stream 2 while 10 corps members would repeat few weeks or months“.
He explained that the affected corps members were punished for either absconding from their places of primary assignment or they were absent for more than three months without permission or any concrete reason.
Well, look at it from the other side, at least they’ll still get their ‘allowee’, most of us know how jobs are hard to come by these days.
The coordinator also noted that two members of the corp lost their lives during the service year. “On a sad note, we lost a male and a female corps members, Shuaibu Yahuza from Bauchi State and Happiness Emmanuel from Enugu State, both of the Stream 1,” he said. He further added that 2,574 corps members passed out from batch ‘B’ Stream 1, describing them as one of the best set they have had in recent time.
