NYSC sets to increase Corps Members allowances
The Director General of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), Suleiman Kazaure has said, the new minimum wage will determine corps members' allowance. He
hinted on the increment of corps members' monthly allowance during swearing-in ceremony in Kano.

Kazaure said implementation of new national minimum wage by the federal government will determine an increment in Corps members' allowance.

He said this on Monday while answering questions from newsmen after the swearing-in ceremony of the 2018 Batch 'A' Corps Members at the NYSC Orientation camp in Kano state.

Below is His Words,
"Our efforts to ensure that the monthly allowance of the Corps Members is increased have yielded a very good result following series of discussion with the Minister of Labour and Productivity, Chris Ngige.

"The N19,800 paid to Corps members is grossly inadequate to cater for their needs during the mandatory one year service to the nation.

"The federal government had set-up a committee to look into the upward review of the minimum wage which will determine the increase of the corps members’ allowance.

"We have been assured that when the new minimum wage takes effect, also the corps members allowance will be reviewed upward," Kazaure Said.
