Three out of the 1,152 members of the National Youth Service Corps( NYSC), deployed to Sokoto State under the 2015 Batch ”B”, Stream Two, are to repeat the service year.

The NYSC State Coordinator,  Mr Thomas Yamma, disclosed this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria( NAN) on Friday in Sokoto.

The coordinator further commended the Sultanate Council of Sokoto and the entire people of the state for their sustained support to the scheme.
