The Lagos State Coordinator, National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), Adenike Adeyemi, on Thursday disclosed that eight batch ‘C’ youth corps members that served in the state died during the service year.

Ms Adeyemi made the disclosure while speaking during the passing-out ceremony of the corps members.

“On a sad note, eight patriots lost their lives during the service year,” she said.

She said it was sad that the corps members died when the nation needed their services most. The coordinator said four corps members received the state honours award for hard work in line with the NYSC policy. Ms Adeyemi also said 53 others would repeat the service year for absconding from their places of primary assignment.

“I congratulate the corps member for the successful completion of their service year and salute your courage and doggedness that helped you accomplish your feat.”

“The tenets of hard work, discipline, honesty, loyalty, patriotism, uprightness and integrity will continually be relevant as you climb up in life,” Ms Adeyemi said.

Gov. Babatunde Fashola also commended the corps members for their focus and resilience in bringing positive impact to education, agriculture, health, and environment in the state.

“As you leave today, do not hesitate to put into practice the experience you have gained by setting up your own enterprise, no matter how small, and grow from there,” Gov. Fashola, represented by Joseph Abolude, Director, General Services Department, Ministry of Special Duties said.

A total of 8165 Batch ‘C’ youth corps members served in the state.

  1. To be or not to be? Is a decision of life. He who wants to be is scared of being. Those who never be were scared of not being.

    To be: Is to live, to face it, to pursue it, to conquer and take it (If destiny allows) but “Live’s not a bed of roses”, how easy and feasible is it to even BE?

    Not to be: Is to live, to back it, to flee away from it (If circumstances permit) but “Lhe violents take it by force”, “The winners never quit”, how easy is it to win? Not to be is being a coward.

    To Be or not to Be?
    Some believe “It is better to die a broken piece of jade than to live a life of clay” while some believe otherwise.
    Either these or the inverse has a great impact on the statement “TO BE OR NOT TO BE”
