The Niger State Coordinator of National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), Mr. Steven Ehoda-adi, has said that 281 fake corps members were sent out of the Niger State orientation camp in Paiko because they didn’t have authentic documents.
Ehoda-Adi disclosed this yesterday at the close of the three weeks orientation exercise, at the camp as 3,259 of the Batch B corps members, 2014, successfully, completed the exercise for their primary assignment in the state.
He told journalists that all the fake corps members were immediately sent out of the orientation camp because they had nothing to show that qualified them for admission into the camp.
According to him, some of them gave the excuse of being attacked by armed robbers on their way to Minna and their call up letters taken away from them while some said they misplaced their call up letter.
He disclosed further that some of the corps members also presented only photocopies of the call up letter pointing out that the NYSC authority does not accept photocopy of the letter for admission into the camp.
Similarly, he stated also that 230 pregnant and nursing mothers who are corps members were disallowed from taking part in routine orientation exercise in the state.
