FG moves to end increasing deaths of NYSC members in their states of primary assignment

The Federal government has initiated plans to help stop the increasing number of NYSC members dying in their states of primary assignment. Recall that quite a number of Youth Corps members have died in the last one year due to one ailment or the other.

In order to stem this tide, the Federal Executive Council yesterday approved the inclusion of all NYSC members in the National Health Insurance Scheme. Health Minister, Isaac Adewole, disclosed this to state house correspondents after the meeting.

"The other memorandum granted at today's meeting had to do with how the FG would prevent unnecessary deaths among youth corps member across the country. Council has approved the memo that henceforth, we would include NYSC members in the National Health Insurance Scheme across the country and this would guarantee access to quality healthcare across the country, prevent unnecessary deaths and also ensure our youth corps members receive the highest attainable level of care across the country"he said.

    There is something that makes pple sick in camp n after ppa posting. I was also very sick d day I left camp. My dad had to arrange my immediate return back home d day after I left camp for ppa. Was just feverish n vomiting through out. The old corpers there had to place me on analgesics to reduce d fever. Funny thing is once I arrived home I started feeling better. But overall I enjoyed service

    This entire scheme should be scrapped. I can only take them serious if each corper is given life insurance and a generous pay out is guaranteed to his/her parents/guardian. Not that money can take the place of a child / ward, but then it will mean that gov't is ready to put their money where their mouth is. Na only sickness dey kill corpers? See my own situation wey they post my cousin to Zamfara State. Ibo boy in rural North and Arewa issuing threats left, right and centre. We don tell the guy to return latest mid September!!!!. Even during the meningitis scare we had to bring him to Lagos for vaccination. This country na real ZOO.
