The Central Bank of Nigeria has expressed willingness to provide opportunities of self-employment for corps members through its skill acquisition training.
The CBN Governor, Dr Godwin Emefiele, who stated this in Abuja while receiving the NYSC Director-General, Brig. Gen. Shuaibu Ibrahim, in his office, says the bank will offer loans to Corps members to start small and medium scale enterprises which they will repay in 7 years.
He noted that the loan was conceived out of the need to reduce unemployment rate in the country.
Mr Emefiele added that upon completion of their training, the loans would be given to corps members to provide support for acquiring working tools and rent of business offices or workshops.
