The Kwara State Government has honoured the 2018/2019 Corps Members who received the President’s NYSC Award with a cash prize in recognition of their diligence, selfless service and outstanding performance.
Presenting the cash award to the beneficiaries at the state Ministry of Sports and Youth Development, the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry, Mrs Iyabo Banire, said that the ceremony replicated the honour earlier accorded the set of Corps Members by President Muhammadu Buhari.
According to her the present administration recognizes and values hard work, adding that it will do everything humanly possible to motivate any youth who has distinguished his or herself in projecting the image of the State positively.
The Acting Director, Youth Development, Mallam Abdulsalam Akeem, described the recipients as worthy ambassadors of the State.
A cash award of Two Hundred and Fifty Thousand (#250, 000.00) Naira was presented to each of the four Corps Members for making the State proud.
