The Federal Government has approved the enrollment of all members of the National Youth Service Corps in the National Health Insurance Scheme.
Brigadier-General Suleiman Kazaure, the Director-General of the NYSC, revealed this on Thursday during his visit to the Orientation Camp in Ede, Osun State.
According to him, the enrollment will enable corps members visit hospitals for treatment anytime they were sick and to prevent avoidable deaths during their service year.
Kazaure said: “The Federal Government has approved that corps members should be enrolled for the NHIS. I received the call last night and it is a good thing.”
