Bello also approved the release of N7.25 million for the transportation of 725 corps members to the various states.

He said each corps member would get N10,000 as support for their transportation back to their various destinations.

The governor thanked them for the contributions to the state during the service year.

He said: “Your specific contributions in Primary Health Care delivery services, provision of quality education and rural infrastructure and advocacy in Sustainable Development Goals were critical in fostering and promoting government’s transformation agenda.

“Your deployment to various communities must have endeared you to their custom and tradition and consequently broadened your perception and understanding of the imperatives of a united Nigeria.”
