JUST IN: FG makes health insurance compulsory for corps members


President Muhammadu Buhari's led administration has directed the National Youth Service Corps to ensure the enrolment of corps members in the National Health Insurance Scheme.

This was made known by the Director-General of NYSC, Brigadier-General Shuaibu Ibrahim on Monday.

The DG said NYSC has intensified liaison with security agencies to ensure the security of corps members in respective place of primary assignments in the country.

He stated this in a media chat with Bureau Chiefs, Media Executives, and Correspondents at Abuja.

Ibrahim said, with the annual mobilisation of over 300,000 corps members, the NYSC no doubt, “remains the most critical platform for mentoring Nigerian youths as drivers of national unity and development.”

“I wish to use this opportunity to again express our gratitude to the security agencies and other stakeholders for their support. Furthermore, the scheme has concluded arrangement with the NHIS for the enrolment of corps members into the NHIS in line with a presidential directive. We have also expended huge resources on critical health needs of corps members, including footing of medical bills".
