Cheering news emanating from the Nasarawa State has it that the allowances of 2014 batch ‘C’ Corps members posted to the state would be increased from N2,000 to N5, 000

Gov. Al-makura announced this at the end of a three-week orientation for Batch C corps members held at the Majaji Dan-Yamusa NYSC orientation camp in Keffi.

In an address to the 1,782 corps members, Al-makura said the allowance would be increased from N2,000 to N5, 000 because of current economic situation in the country..

The governor urged the corps members to use the lessons gained during the orientation period to improve themselves, their host communities and the country at large.


He enjoined them to use the potential in the state to gain more experience for themselves, adding that his administration attached high premium to youth development and the NYSC scheme

Al-makura also urged the corps members to contribute to the state government’s effort at peace building.

He called on them to relate freely with members of their host communities and participate in the peace process initiated by the state government.

“The government strongly rejects out rightly the mischievous call for a state of emergency as being not only political but also unpatriotic.’’

He gave the assurance that all necessary machineries had been put in place to ensure the security of both the corps members and all law-abiding citizens of the state.
