Your allowance will soon go up – NYSC DG assures corps members

The Director General of the National Youth Service Corps, Brig Gen Yushau Ahmed has assured corps members that their monthly stipends will soon be reviewed upward.

The DG, who gave the assurance on Saturday while addressing 2,762 corps members of Batch B, Stream one at Ogun State NYSC Orientation Camp, Sagamu, said the monthly allowance would be increased by the time the ongoing minimum wage negotiation is over.

According to him, the corps members are too special to be forgotten by the Federal government.

“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,” the NYSC DG said.

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

Ahmed revealed that three corps members who violated the rule were expelled from the camp.

“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”, he added.
