Buhari Orders Compulsory Health Insurance for Corps Members

President Muhammadu Buhari has directed the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) to ensure the enrolment of corps members in the National Health Insurance Scheme.

The Director-General of NYSC, Brigadier-General Shuaibu Ibrahim, disclosed this in Abuja on Monday November 9, 2020 while speaking to newsmen.

He said the NYSC had intensified liaison with security agencies to ensure the security of corps members wherever they are serving in the country.

According to him, 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,” Ibrahim added.
