The Jigawa state NYSC Coordinator, Hajiya Aishatu Adamu, on Monday, April 19, said henceforth, 90 percent of corps members in the state will be deployed to rural schools. She made the declaration when she paid a courtesy visit to a news agency in Dutse, the state capital.
The coordinator who recently assumed duty on April 8, said that the move was part of NYSC‘s efforts towards boosting the teaching quality in rural communities across the state.
She announced that science-based COVID-19 volunteers among the corps members would be trained and posted to rural communities in the state. According to Adamu, the volunteers will be attached to health facilities to sensitize community members on basic hygiene rules and how to prevent themselves from contracting the virus.
