Shuaibu Ibrahim, director-general of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), speaks about the planned implementation of the promised N30,000 allowance to corps members Ibrahim says he will keep the corps members informed about the date for the commencement of the new payment.
The NYSC boss further explains that the scheme has always complied with the freedom of information law of the country since its enactment.
The director-general of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), Shuaibu Ibrahim, has promised to inform corps members about the date for the commencement of the payment of N30,000 new allowance to them.
The Nation reports that Ibrahim said this at a workshop on freedom of information act for desk officers of the NYSC in Abuja.
“They will be communicated accordingly, please,” he said when he was asked the particular date for the commencement of the payment to the corps members. According to him, the workshop is aimed at consolidating on the successes recorded by the scheme in the area of freedom of information and its law.
The NYSC DG said the scheme had faced some challenges occasioned by what he called “apparent lack of knowledge of our policies and operations by a section of the public.”
Ibrahim advised Nigerians to try and understand the NYSC so as to get used to issues with the operations of the scheme and its role.
“Since the enactment of the freedom of information act in 2011, the NYSC has been in the forefront of ensuring total compliance with the provisions of the act,” he said.
