By; SUNDAY ODE, Abuja.
President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday commiserated with the families of three National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) members who lost their lives recently during the 2016 Batch ‘B’ Orientation Programme in three States.
He however, ordered an investigation into the death of Miss Ifedolapo Oladepo in Kano State to unravel the true circumstances that led to the unfortunate incident.
A statement by the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina said Buhari, who described the demise of those young Nigerians as “shocking, sad and unfortunate,” regretted that they died in the course of answering the national call to serve.
He urges the families, friends and associates of the deceased to be consoled by the knowledge that their loved ones paid the supreme price while on national service and not for ignoble reasons, the statement said.
Adesina said in the statement that President Buhari also extended condolences to the Director-General and Management of the NYSC over the transition of the Youth Corps Members, Chinyerum Nwenenda Elechi, Ifedolapo Oladepo and Monday Asuquo Ukeme, in Bayelsa, Kano and Zamfara States respectively.
While enjoining the Management to do all within its powers to protect the lives of those under its charge, the President calls on parents and guardians of current and potential NYSC participants not to panic over the recent tragic deaths, the statement noted.
