Corps Members’ Allowance To Be Increased With New Minimum Wage


By Hadiza Suleman

The monthly allowance of the national youth service corps members will soon be reviewed upward in line with the soon-to-be implemented national minimum wage for workers.

The director general of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), Brigadier General Yushau Ahmed, disclosed this while speaking to 2,762 corps members of Batch B, Stream one at Ogun State NYSC Orientation Camp, Sagamu, weekend.

He said the corps members were too special to be forgotten by the federal government.

In his words, “For your allowance, don’t worry, as soon as the ongoing negotiation on the minimum wage is concluded, you can be so sure that your allowance too will definitely go up.

“There is no way the government will forget you because you are really special.”

He warned the corps members against posting camp activities on their social media handles, saying that it is against the rule.

General Ahmed said that three corps members who violated the rule had been expelled from the camp, adding that, “Let me also remind you of the camp rules that you are not allowed to post the camp activities online or on social media. Three of your colleagues elsewhere were found breaking these rules, posting camp activities on social media, and they have been decamped.”
