Taraba State Govt approves N75,000 allowance for NYSC corps members

The Taraba State Governor, Dr. Agbu Kefas, has approved a N75,000 welfare package for National Youth Service Corps members serving in schools across the state.

In a bid to recruit the best quality teachers to complement the free and compulsory education policy of his administration.

Zainab Usman Jalingo, The Commissioner for Information and Re-orientation disclosed this in a press statement issued in Jalingo on Sunday 24th September, 2023.

According to the statement, the governor has approved significant allowances for NYSC corps members serving in schools across the state beginning with an additional N10,000 to their monthly allowance.

The statement read, “In response to the emergency in the educational section sector, the governor has also approved a one-time payment of Fifty Thousand Naira as a medical allowance, an accommodation allowance of twenty-Five Thousand Naira per term, totaling Seventy-Five Thousand Naira for three terms.

“Exceptional corps members who distinguish themselves while serving in schools will be offered automatic employment opportunities.

“To execute these initiatives, the Commissioner of Education has collaborated with the Commissioner of Youth and Sports to chart the way forward. The Commissioner of Youth and Sports is committed to ensuring the timely implementation of these new packages for Youth Corps members serving in our schools.

“These measures reinforced Taraba State’s unwavering commitment to enhancing access to quality education, fostering youth development, and ensuring a brighter future for our children,” the statement read.

The statement added that uniforms, shoes, socks, and books will be made available to pupils and students in secondary schools by January to support the children in their pursuit of education.

This is even as the statement said in the coming year, the government will cover the examination fees for all SS3 students, enabling them to write both WAEC and NECO examinations, while students who excel will be eligible for sponsorship and scholarships.

“Commencing this term, an ICT-based registration system will be introduced. This will apply to both Teachers and new and returning students. The aim is to ensure seamless provision of essential school materials.

“Adult learners seeking new enrollment would be directed to the various Mass Education Centers, ensuring accessibility to education for all, while schools that have reached their maximum capacity in terms of facilities will implement a shifting system temporarily while additional buildings are provided to meet the increasing demand,” the statement added.
