A firm, Trans-Sahara Consortium, is seeking partnership with the National Youth Service Corps to promote opportunities in ICT-related financial transactions.
Speaking when he led a team from the company on a visit to the NYSC Director-General, Brigadier General Sulaiman Kazaure, a former Governor of Jigawa State, Senator Saminu Turaki, proposed the inclusion of Corps members in the ‘Edapt Solution for Financial Inclusion’ project.
Turaki, who stressed the need to empower Corps members during the service year, said the project would empower them to become employers of labour.
He explained that the Edapt Solution would ease financial transactions as it designed to provide conducive atmosphere for millions of Nigerians to send and receive money without stress.
“Every Nigerian must be included in the financial system and it is a secured payment system that allows financial transaction with ease,” he added.
Senator Turaki used the occasion to commend Kazaure for his laudable achievements since assuming duty as the NYSC Director-General.
Responding, Kazaure promised that the request would be presented to the NYSC Management for consideration.
