“We want to extend palliatives to members of the National Youth Service Corps. Each one of you will receive the sum of N30,000, that amount will be credited to your accounts as soon as your bank details are provided to me,” Zulum said.

He added:

“In addition to that, we have provided you with 100 bags of rice, 10 bags of 100kg beans, 10 gallons of cooking oil and 10 bulls.”

Governor Zulum advises corps members

The Borno state governor charged the corp members to adhere to camp rules by living peacefully among themselves and engaging in acts that will foster peace in the country.

“I want you to be dedicated and loyal to constituted authorities. Make friends in this part of the country so that together we can build a prosperous Nigeria with sustainable economic growth and development,” he said.

Borno security: Zulum thanks FG

Governor Zulum also thanked the federal government for improving the security situation in Borno state, which enabled the return of the NYSC orientation camp in Maiduguri.

For years, the FG had suspended hosting the NYSC orientation camp in Maiduguri due to the activities of insurgents.

Batches of corps members to Borno state were hosted in Bauchi and Katsina states for their three weeks of orientation camping activities, after which they were sent to Borno state for primary assignments.

Niger coup: NYSC speaks mobilise corps members for war

In another report, the NYSC has opened up on the alleged plan to mobilise corps members for military action against the military junta in Niger.

The NYSC director of press and public relations, Eddy Megwa, in a statement on Saturday, August 5, said the service did not have such a plan.

Megwa’s statement was a reaction to the claim in a viral video that the NYSC was planning to mobilise corps members in the purported military action against the Republic of Niger.
