NYSC To Review Corps’ Members Monthly Allowance
Director-General of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), Brig.-Gen. Suleiman Kazaure, has revealed federal government’s plan to commence the process of reviewing corps members’ monthly allowance.
Kazaure, stated this on Thursday when he visited the FCT Orientation Camp in Kubwa as part of his tour of orientation camps across the country, said the scheme received a letter to that effect from the Presidency that was also copied to the Minister of Finance.
“The Federal Government is working to increase your monthly allowance.
“We received a letter from the Presidency, that is, Ministry of Youth and Sport, copied the Ministry of Finance that shows that corps members’ allowance will be reviewed upward, it is in the pipeline,” he said.
He, therefore, advised the corps members to reciprocate the gesture by taking advantage of the Skills Acquisition and Entrepreneurship Development (SAED) so they can assist government in creating jobs.
