“I’d also like to let you know that 1, 626 corps members are scheduled to leave service today, with 20 of them having absconded and being expected to repeat the service year.”

“Another 30 who engaged in acts of misbehavior like as absenteeism, illegal journeys, and so forth would serve extensions ranging from two to four weeks,” Ekwe said.

During the service year, Ekwe praised some of the corps members for demonstrating a high level of maturity and responsibility by conducting themselves honorably and within the bounds of the law.

The state coordinator urged corps members to put their newfound knowledge from Skill Acquisition and Entrepreneurship Development (SAED) to good use in order to grow as individuals and citizens.

“The knowledge gained should be put to use in order to achieve self-sufficiency and wealth development.” “Resist the urge to become wealthy quickly,” she suggested.

Gov. Udom Emmanuel of Akwa Ibom told the corps members that the issue with their state allowance had been rectified, and that they would be receiving their allowances quickly from now on.

Mr Alexander Utin, Special Assistant to the Governor on Youths Mobilisation, represented Emmanuel, who urged the corps members to take advantage of the Skill Acquisition and Entrepreneurship Development (SAED) program to develop themselves as self-sufficient and labor employers.
