Abuja – The Permanent Secretary in the Federal Ministry of Youth Development, Rabi Shuaibu Jimeta, has appealed for funding to enable the National Youth Service Corps fulfill its mandate.

Jimeta charged charitable individuals, corporate bodies and philanthropic organizations in the country to assist the organisation in its mandate of promoting national unity and cultural integration in the country.

She made the appeal in her office in Abuja while welcoming a six-man delegation of the Governing Board of the NYSC Foundation.

Jimeta commended the Foundation for the valuable support it had been rendering to NYSC over the years.

The Foundation most prominently instituted a soft loan scheme geared towards empowering ex-Corp members to set up small scale businesses in order to reduce graduate unemployment among our teeming youth.

She pledged the Ministry’s support and encouragement as well as commending the skill acquisition and economic empowerment initiative of the Foundation.
