The Director-General, Brigadier General Sulaiman Kazaure, has given cash rewards to three Corps members for their honesty in returning money found at the NYSC Permanent Orientation Camp in Benue State to the management.
The corps members are Eno Sunday Jesam (BN/17A/1536), Ezenwa Chidera (BN/17A/1718), and Timothy Deborah Elewechi (BN/17A/2233).
Presenting them to the Director-General during his visit to the camp, the NYSC State Coordinator, Mrs. Eno AwakEssien, said Jesam found and returned N27,500 to the Camp Management while Chidera returned N17,000 and Elewechi, N10,750.
In a quick reaction, Kazaure presented cash-filled envelopes to the trio as reward for their demonstration of honesty. He praised them for their honesty while urging other Corps members to emulate them.
Kazaure said the gesture of the three Corps members had further strengthen his hope in Nigerian youth and the future of the country.
"I am sure this country will change during your time; so keep up the tempo."
"From what I have seen, we are surely going to have in you leaders that are corrupt-free,"
He enjoined the Corps members to be patriotic, and to always give their best wherever they found themselves.
The Director-General cautioned them against engagement in cyber crimes, dealings in illicit drugs and other vices.
Earlier, the NYSC State Coordinator Mrs. Eno AwakEssien, had said 2,241 Corps members were registered in the camp, and described them as disciplined.
She also praised the team spirit among camp officials, saying it contributed to the successes recorded in the camp.
Mrs. AwakEssien appealed to the NYSC Boss to approve the procurement of a 150 KVA power generator for the camp to help address the problem of epileptic power supply.
