Federal government has officially increased the monthly allowance of members of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) to 30,000.
This was disclosed on Thursday during a press conference by the Finance Minister, Mrs. Zainab Ahmed,who noted that the FG is still working out modalities before the implementation of the new allowance for corps members.
She said “The other aspect that should be clear is that there is an increase for the NYSC as well because NYSC, by its Act, is designed that they earn the minimum wage”.
“So, NYSC allowance also has to increase to N30, 000. So, I cannot give you projections right now because the negotiations are not yet concluded” she added.
