Gov.Tanko Al-Makura of Nasarawa state on Tuesday, promised automatic employment to any newly deployed corps member who marries an

“You should see yourselves as agent of positive change in the society. “I want to advise you to discharge your duties without fear or favour, and
relate freely with your host communities. “I promise automatic employment to any NYSC Batch ‘A’ corps member who marries an indigenes in
order to promote peaceful co-existence among the people of the state and others states of the country.” Al-Makura said.
