Kano State coordinator of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), Alhaji Baba Ladan, said a total of 2,405 corps members have completed the mandatory one-year service.
He also disclosed that one corps member, Sani Kayode Mustapha, who served at the College of Legal Studies in Kano, lost his life.
This was just as the state governor, Dr Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, assured the NYSC management that the Kano State government would continue to be committed to welfare provisions and security of corps members in the state.
Ladan, who made the assertion at the Passing Out Parade (POP) of the Batch “A” Stream 1 corps members, also stated that out of 2,405 corps members, seven of them absconded, while 17 were being disciplined for various offences ranging from extension of service between two weeks to five months and outright repeat of service.
