According to him, the corps members, Wisdom Okeoghene with NYSC number BA/21B/1176 and Abdullahi Mubarak with BA/21B/0023, earned the prerequisites to be recognised with national awards.

Reports Gathered that based on the carrot and stick approach of the scheme, five others got their service years extended by two months as a result of various offences committed during their service year.

“In line with the policy of the scheme to reward hard work and dedication to duty, two corps members who distinguished themselves in the rendition of their national service have been presented to the state government for the bestowal of the State Award for distinguished service.

“My dear corps members, it is my earnest and sincere hope that you have learnt the lesson intended by this carrot and stick policy of the scheme that all manners of reward abound, including rewards for hard work and indolence.

“So for those who performed creditably during the service year, I wish to tell you that your period of hard work has just begun, and for those who failed to live above board as expected, this is the time to start on a new slate,” he said.

Abubakar thanked the Bauchi State government, the security agencies, community leaders, corps employers and other stakeholders who made the service year a success for the corps members.

In his address, the Bauchi State Governor, Bala Mohammed said the people of the state, whom the corps members had served meritoriously in the last twelve months, appreciated and applauded their laudable contributions toward the socio-economic development of their communities.

He reiterated that the state government would continue to provide the necessary support needed to create the enabling environment for the managers of the scheme and corps members in the state to effectively discharge their duties.
