NYSC Members Stipend in Taraba State: Latest Updates
Taraba State has made big news regarding the payment of stipends to National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) members. Here’s all you need to know:
Key Decisions Made by the Governor
The Governor of Taraba State, Agbu Kefas, has been proactive in supporting NYSC members, especially those serving in schools across the state. Here are the updates:
- Medical Allowance: A sum of N50,000 has been set aside for the medical needs of NYSC members. This is a major step in ensuring the well-being of these young professionals.
- Accommodation Allowance: Every term, NYSC members are set to receive N25,000 to help with their housing. This totals to N75,000 for a full year which comprises three terms.
- Monthly Support: An extra N10,000 will be given each month as support from the state government.
These steps were taken because of the rise in students joining schools. The government has made education free, given out uniforms, and other tools for learning. This has led to more kids getting into schools.
Why the Increase in School Enrollments?
Taraba State has seen many new students in schools lately.
The main reason? The state government’s decision to make basic education free.
This move has brought a big wave of enrollments.
A teacher, Isa Mohammed, from Salihu Dogo Primary School in Jalingo, talked about this change.
He said his school got over 300 new students in just one week.
More Details on the New Support for NYSC Members
The state has more plans for the NYSC members. They are:
- Extra Monthly Allowance: An added N10,000 will be given every month.
- Rewards for the Best: NYSC members who do really well in schools might get job offers right away. This is a great chance for them!
- Help for Students: By January, students will get things like uniforms, shoes, socks, and books. This is to help them study better.
- New Registration System: Schools will soon use a computer system to register. This is for teachers and students (both old and new). Registering makes sure they get their school tools on time.
- Changes in Crowded Schools: Some schools are full now. So, they will use a “shift system” for a while. More buildings will come up to fix this.
- Exam Fees: Next year, SS3 students won’t pay exam fees. The state will cover costs for both WAEC and NECO exams. Top students might even get scholarships!
- Adult Learning: Adults who want to study can go to Mass Education Centers. This makes sure everyone can learn.
The state governor wants these changes to happen fast.
He has told the state’s Ministry of Education and Ministry of Youth and Sports Development to get to work.
In short, Taraba State is investing a lot in its youth and the future of its education.
NYSC members will play a big role in this, and the state is making sure they are well-supported
