No fewer than 281 fake corps members who found their way into the Orientation Camp in Niger state were sent parking, as about 3,259 Batch ‘B’ corps members on Tuesday, successfully completed their two-weeks orientation in the state.
Also about 230 corps members, made up of pregnant and nursing mothers were also disallowed from taking part in the normal routine during the two weeks’ orientation exercise in the state.
Speaking to the journalists in an interview, shortly after the closing ceremony of the 2014 Batch B orientation course in Minna, the state coordinator of NYSC, Mr. Steven Ehoda-adi said all the fake corps members that were sent out of the orientation camp had nothing to show to qualify them to be admitted into camp.
He disclosed that while 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, others claimed to have misplaced it.
Mr. Ehoda-adi also said that in some instance, some of the corps members presented only photocopies of their call-up letters and said the NYSC authority does not accept such for admitting corps members into the camp.
He further disclosed that about 230 female corps members were not allowed to take part in the normal routine during the two weeks orientation course because they were identified as either nursing mothers or pregnant.
