Nasarawa State Government has mandated the verification of all National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) members serving in the state.
The Special Adviser on Youth, Honourable Samuel Akala disclosed this in Lafia that this follows series of complaints of non payment of allowances of some corp members posted to government establishments.
Akala said the governor had mandated the verification by conducting a headcount, and collection of the dates of deployment and passing out of all corps members in the State.
Alala explained that the data collected from this exercise would be used in a payment system that would ensure state allowances to corp members are paid into their respective accounts.
He said this will enable the corps members to be sure of payment directly from the state government to their accounts during their period of service.
Hon. Akala assured that when completed the payments would be computer based , direct and simplified to the corps members accounts.
