NYSC to start accounting for its IGR next year

Shuaibu Ibrahim, NYSC Director-General

The Director-General, National Youth Service Corps, (NYSC) Shuaibu Ibrahim on Tuesday said that the service would soon start declaring its internally generated revenue.

Addressing NYSC staff in Plateau State, Ibrahim said the scheme would look into ways of reviving NYSC farms across the country.

“We are going to start generating revenue and in our next budget we are going to include Internally Generated Revenue (IGR).

“When we generate the revenue, we can drop something in the treasury and take overhead off government. I have told the man overseeing our ventures that every kobo must be accounted for.

“We must declare everything for Nigerians to see,” Mr Ibrahim said.

He noted the security of those working on the farms would be given the desired attention.

Mr Ibrahim, however, said he had discussed with the National Security Adviser to task the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, (NSCDC) to give them agro rangers to protect corps members and the farms.
