Adamawa State Governor, Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri has approved N10,000 allowance for corp members posted to the state.
He said the payment will take effect from January 2024.
The governor made the announcement on Tuesday at the swearing-in ceremony of Batch 'C' Stream 2 corps members deployed to the state at Damare NYSC orientation camp, Girei Local Government Area.
The governor said the gesture was to support the corp members reduce the current economic hardship occasioned by the removal of fuel subsidy.
Governor Fintiri also approved the "immediate supply of 50 bags of rice, 10 bulls and 10 Jerrycans of cooking oil to the corps members to make their orientation camp memorable."
Muhammad B. Tukur, the governor's Senior New Media aide made this known in a statement on Tuesday.
According to Tukur, the governor said "his administration considers the NYSC scheme in the state as a strategic partner in the execution of Government policies and programmes, particularly in areas of education, healthcare, Agriculture and rural development."
On his part, the State Commissioner of Youths and Sports who doubles as the State Chairman of the NYSC Governing Board, Barrister Wali Yakubu urged the corp members to utilize the opportunities in the camp through participating in skills training sessions.
He stressed the importance of the training sessions to avoid the "lengthy queue of job seekers".
The State NYSC Coordinator, Jingi Denis said the corp members were currently being posted outside the capital city, Yola, due to the scheme's reassessment of posting regulations.
He added that the decision was taken "in light of the state's peaceful situation."
