The NYSC chief explained that embarking in an unauthorised journey was capable of earning the corps members sanction from the scheme.

He also vowed to deal with violators of the NYSC bye-laws in line with scheme’s rules.

“Don’t debase yourselves, study the bye-law including NYSC Act and be law-abiding. Don’t participate in politics, avoid religious and tribal differences,” he said.
