Enugu state increases allowance for NYSC serving members in the state.

Jubilation in Enugu as the State Govt increased the allowance paid to Corps Members of National Youth Service Corps(NYSC) serving in primary healthcare facilities in rural areas in the state.
The Commissioner for Information, Mr Ogbuagu Anikwe, announced this in Enugu while briefing newsmen on the outcome of the State Executive Council meeting.

According to Anikwe, below is the breakdown:
- Medical Doctors serving in the hospitals in rural areas would henceforth receive N30,000 monthly from the state govt as against the former N3,800 paid to them.

- Pharmacists, Nurses, Radiographers, Laboratory scientists and Statisticians would receive a monthly stipend of N20,000.

He announced that the government also planned to review the service condition and welfare of other set of corps members in the state. The commissioner, however, pointed out that the increase in allowances of the corps members serving in health facilities was to further ensure that health services were taken close to rural dwellers.

He state this would cost the govt extra N31.2million per annum but it is an expense that worth it.
