He, however, advised the out-going corp members to be security conscious as they go into the larger society.

The 2017 Batch A stream one corps members completed their NYSC program on Thursday, April 12, 2018.
As some of the outgoing corps members are being honoured by the scheme, some other corps members are berating the scheme and calling it a total waste of time.
One of the female corp members that passed out in the last POP, Claudia Ayodele, has taken to Instagram to rant about the program and also about the crop of Nigerian graduates flooding the market.
According to her, majority of Nigerian graduates lack common sense and are only half baked in their various institutions.
