NYSC supports Army’s decision to sanction female personnel who fell in love with corper

The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) on Tuesday, December 21, has issued a statement over a corps member who made a marriage proposal to a female soldier.

According to the organisation, the Nigerian Army will not allow any violation of its military traditions.

1st News had reported the recent detention of a female soldier who got romantically entangled with a male corp member at the NYSC orientation camp in Yikpata, Kwara State.

The Director-General of the NYSC, Brig.-Gen. Ibrahim Shuaibu, who stated this during a press briefing in Abuja, explained that the Army was a strong institution that was founded on the basis of discipline.

The NYSC said, “Every organisation has its own customs and traditions, and we have to abide by it. We, on our part, have spoken to our corps members.

“We encourage them to inter-marry, but we have never had a situation; where a corps member will go and propose (to a soldier).

“The Army has its own tradition and they will not joke with it. So, we always tell our corps members to play by the rules.

“I can assure that the army as an institution is built on its customs and traditions; and anything that will impinge on discipline, they will not take it lightly.”

Meanwhile, the Debt Management Office (DMO) says its latest offer of N250 billion sovereign Sukuk, the fourth in the series, would be deployed to three benefitting ministries.

Director-General of the DMO, Patience Oniha, made this known on Monday, December 20, in Abuja; at an investor meeting for the 2021 Sukuk.

Oniha said that the proceeds would go into upgrading some roads in the Federal Capital Territory through the FCTA; as well as the Niger Delta through the Ministry of Niger Delta Affairs.

She, however, added that a chunk of the proceeds would still go into upgrading critical road infrastructure across the country; through the Federal Ministry of Works and Housing.
