NYSC is planning to use E-Naira for corps members.

The National Youth Service Corps, or NYSC, is planning to incorporate the E-Naira into the scheme.

The NYSC will work with the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, to make internet money available to corps members.

The platform would allow the scheme to accept payments with no risk.

Habib Yusuf, CBN Deputy Director, Information Technology, announced this on Monday while leading a courtesy visit to the NYSC National Directorate Headquarters in Abuja.

According to him, the e-naira would allow onboarding of many users and off-line payments for goods and services.

He said that the E-naira would also offer its users the opportunity of many innovations with ease.

Responding to the CBN request for partnership, Mrs. Christy Ifeyinwa Uba, the Acting DG of NYSC commended the apex bank for the innovation.

The acting DG said the NYSC is willing and ready to work with the CBN or any other organisation on any innovation that would make the service year memorable for the Corps Members.

She said the NYSC Management would consider the request from the CBN.
