He was full of praises for them, while urging other Corps members to emulate them.
The Director-General said the gesture of the three Corps members had further strengthen his hope in Nigerian youth and the future of the country.
“I am sure this country will change during your time; so keep up the tempo.
“From what I have seen, we are surely going to have in you leaders that are corrupt-free,” Kazaure added.
He enjoined the Corps members to be patriotic, and to always give their best wherever they found themselves.
The Director-General cautioned them against engagement in cyber crimes, dealings in illicit drugs and other vices.
