VSO lauds NYSC for their support
The National Youth Service Corps has been commended by the Voluntary Service Overseas (VSO) for its support towards the success of its programmes in Nigeria.
Corps Members to enjoy improved healthcare services
Nigeria's Federal Executive Council (FEC) has approved the inclusion of National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) members into the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS).
With this development, the NYSC will collaborate with NHIS to provide improved healthcare services to Corps Members throughout their mandatory one-year service.
The NYSC Director-General, Brigadier General Sulaiman Kazaure, has expressed disappointment over the state of facilities at the NYSC Permanent Orientation Camp in Kwara State.
He made his position known in an interview with newsmen shortly after addressing Corps members at the camp located at Yikpata in Edu Local Government Area.
Vanguard News reported that Kazaure, who inspected facilities at the camp, said its general condition fell below standard; and went on to appeal to the state government to rise to the occasion and upgrade the facilities.
