Former Head of State, General Yakubu Gowon (rtd), has asked the Federal Government to provide adequate security for corps members who will serve as ad-hoc staff in the 2023 general elections.

He spoke in Abuja on Thursday during the inauguration of the National Youth Service Corps Television, Channel 365 on TStv and NYSC Radio 88.3FM.

He promised to continue to advocate protection of corps members and the development of the scheme.

On the NYSC Trust Fund, Gowon expressed satisfaction on the progress made on the legislative processes towards the passage of the bill for the establishment of the fund.

He said he looked forward to the “final conclusion of these processes and the eventual take-off of the Trust Fund, which promises to be a game-changer for the NYSC, our graduate youths and the Nigerian economy.”

NYSC Director-General, Major-General, Ibrahim Shuaibu, said the stations were established to further advance the cause of the scheme.
