National Youth Service Corp (NYSC) members will now be posted to Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) camps to carry out their primary assignment.
This was revealed to newsmen on Thursday. April 28, 2016, by the NYSC Director-General, Sule Kazaure.
Kazaure also promised the corp members that their outstanding salaries will be paid.
You will recall that some states reportedly suspended payments of monthly allowance to corp members due to the economic crunch affecting the country.
He also said medical personnel and other professionals will be sent to meet the needs of the IDPs.
Kazaure also announced the donations of 700 bags of rice and 800 bags of Garri to IDP camps.
Also, the NYSC has officially launched its Nigerian Students and Youth Corpers’ Discount cards (NS&YCDC).
The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, who was the special guest of honour at the event, said the development was cause for celebration.
