share on:

Pandemonium was the order of the day at the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), Headquarters in Abuja over the fate of about 100 corps members participating in hajj pilgrimage in Saudi Arabia.

To compound the already complicated situation is the rumoured death of one of its staff from the FCT secretariat.

Information gathered says the scheme granted about 100 corps members permission to embark on pilgrimage.

A reliable source on Friday confirmed that the management was worried about the welfare of its corps members, adding that they had been taking necessary steps to reach them.

It was further learnt that since the management’s efforts at reaching the corps members directly failed, it has resorted to calling their next-of-kins.

The source dislcosed that: ‘’About 100 corps members are participating in this year’s hajj. They were given permission but the management is concerned about their wellbeing. The management started contacting their relatives to get first hand information about their well-being.”
