FG commences review of corps members’ allowance




The federal government has commenced the process of reviewing the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) monthly allowance upward.
The Director General, Brig.
Gen. Suleiman Kazaure stated this yesterday when he visited the FCT orientation camp, Kubwa as part of his tour of orientation camps.
Kazaure said the scheme received a letter from the Presidency that was also copied to the Minister of Finance to that effect.
“The FG is working to increase your monthly allowance.
Therefore, wherever you find yourselves, conduct yourselves well, be good ambassadors of your families, the scheme and the nation.
“We received a letter from the Presidency, that is, Ministry of Youth and Sport, copied the Ministry of Finance that shows that the corps allowance will be reviewed upward.
It is in the pipeline,” he said.
He advised the corps members to reciprocate the government’s gesture by taking advantage of the Skill Acquisition and Entrepreneurship Development (SAED) so they can assist government by creating jobs.
He said the corps members should consider themselves privileged to serve the nation, enhance they should be patriotic and uphold the mandate of the scheme.
