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.
