Nigerian govt to enroll corps members into NHIS –NYSC D-G

The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), on Thursday, said the
Federal Government had concluded plans to enroll all NYSC
members in the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS).

The NYSC Director- General (D-G), Sule Kazaure, made this
disclosure while addressing youth corps members at the Osun
NYSC permanent orientation camp, Ede.

Mr. Kazuaure disclosed that he had received a call that the
president had approved the enrollment of all NYSC members in
the NHIS programme.

“I have been informed that the president had approved the
enrollment of all my children (corps members) into the National
Health Insurance Scheme.

“In fact, I was impressed when they called me last night that
very soon, they would finish with the whole process.

“I am sure that by next week, everything would have been
finalised,’’ he said.

The D-G also advised the corps members on the need for all
Nigerians to live in peace and unity, urging them
to be agents of change wherever they found themselves.

“There is the need for you to be agents of change and make
impact wherever you are posted to go for your primary
assignments.

“The NYSC programme is all about integration of Nigeria and
therefore, you must stay united; you must work as a team during
the period of your service year,’’ he said.

Also, Emmanuel Attah, the State Coordinator, NYSC, Osun, lauded
the NYSC D-G for visiting the orientation camp.

Mr. Attah said that it had not been easy keeping things working
and running smoothly in the camp.

“With the cooperation and determination of the members of
staff, we have been able to make the camp habitable for corps
members.

“I am grateful for the wonderful way the Batch A Stream One
corps members in the camp have behaved; I am proud of them.

“I also wish the D-G can visit us again on Saturday, to show us
his dancing skills, as the camp management will be bringing a
famous hip-hop artist, Q-Dot to entertain the corps members,’’
he said.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the DG inspected
some facilities in the camp to ascertain how well they were
working.

Some of the facilities included, the CCTV unit, skills
acquisition centre, camp clinic, kitchen and hostels.

The D-G also inaugurated a newly built and equipped medical
laboratory building in the camp, which was donated by Atanda
Eyiowu-Awi of Eyiowu-Awi Pharmaceutical Ltd.

The NHIS was established in 2004 to provide quality and
affordable access to health care.
