NYSC Gives Update On Corps Members N30,000 Allowance

The Director-General of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), Brig. Gen. Shuaibu Ibrahim, has dismissed reports that it will start paying corps members N30,000 allowance this July.

Speaking on Wednesday, Ibrahim revealed that the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration is yet to give NYSC a go-ahead on the implementation of the new national minimum wage.

According to the NYSC DG, “When there is an increment and we have been notified, we will communicate the heartwarming decision to our corps members through appropriate channels.

“And certainly, the management will make sure that our corps members are paid according to the new increment.”

He urged corps members to only source information from the NYSC verified social media accounts.

Dear Serving Corp members and Prospective Corp members, what do you think about this whole issue of allowance increment? Comment below what you feel.

  1. What will it even take to start paying the new allawee. Pls the FG should stop this unnecessary delays and pay us corps members the new wage this august.


    We don’t understand dis NYSC AGAIN O, we are thinking that since president av signed d bill into law in April whenever time dey implement it, it suppose to take effect immediately but now they are telling us another story, what about d ppl DAT av left service and they av sign d bill into law before their service end.

    Please the FG should extend the implementation of the new minimum wage to corp members because the allowance we are receiving solves just a few of our primary needs.
