Immediate families of the 10 slain National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) members in 2011 in Bauchi State would get automatic employment in the Federal Civil Service.

The 10 Corps members were killed in some northern states in the wake of the 2011 election won by former President Goodluck Jonathan.

The development was contained in a statement Director of Press and Public Relations in the Ministry of Sports and Youths, Mohammed Manga, released.

It said President Muhammadu Buhari approved automatic employment in the Federal Civil Service for one graduate from each of the immediate families of the victims and scholarships to the four children of Mr. Adowei Elliot, a Delta State indigene killed during the post-election violence.

The statement reads in part: “As a sign of the Federal Government’s unflinching commitment to the NYSC, President Muhammadu Buhari has approved the automatic employment of 10 direct siblings of the deceased NYSC members, who lost their lives during the 2011 post-election violence in Bauchi State and also approved appropriate scholarships to the four children of Mr. Adowei Elliot.”
