President Muhammadu Buhari has granted automatic employment in the Federal Civil Service to 65 former members of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC).
Naija News reports that Buhari’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, disclosed this in a statement he signed late Thursday titled ‘President Buhari grants 65 ex-corps members automatic employment, lists achievements of NYSC at 50.’
Speaking at the NYSC 50th Anniversary Honours Award held at the State House Conference Centre, the President also awarded the ex-Corps members scholarships to pursue their education up to the Doctorate Degree level at any university of their choice within the country.
He announced a cash prize of N250,000 for each of the top award winners and N200,000 for other award recipients, including the physically challenged ex-Corps members under the NYSC Hope Alive Programme.
Further more, the President issued a directive to the Head of the Civil Service of the Federation, the Federal Civil Service Commission and the Minister of Education to ensure adherence to the employment offer and the granting of scholarships.
Buhari said out of the 65 recipients, 52 individuals received the Presidential Honours Awards, while the remaining 13 were physically challenged ex-Corps Members recognised under the NYSC Hope Alive programme.
