The governor of Taraba state, Dr. Agbu Kefas, has sanctioned the sum of N50,000 as medical allowance for National Youth Service Corps (NYSC, members attached to schools, in response to the increased enrollment that followed the state’s announcement of free basic and secondary education.

His Excellency has approved considerable allowances for National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) members serving in Taraba State schools, including an additional ten thousand naira added to their monthly stipend, as an emergency reaction to the education situation.

“A one-time medical allowance of 50,000 Naira.” A sum equal to seventy-five thousand naira (about $25,000) to be used towards housing expenses over the course of three academic years.

Members of the Exceptional Youth Corps who excel in their school-based service positions will be guaranteed future employment.
