He enjoined serving corps members to rise up for one-minute silence in honour of the deceased.

The director-general said the scheme demanded a lot  of dedication and commitment from  corps members, adding that its objectives included national integration.

He urged them to contribute their quota to national development and carry out any assignment given to them diligently.
