NYSC Members' Allwance Increases In Cross Rivers State

  • Jubilation in Cross Rivers State after Gov. Ben Ayode announces Corps Members' allowances increase.
The Governor of Cross Rivers State, Ben Ayade has increased the monthly allowance of National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) members serving in the state from N3,100 to N5,000.
The Governor made the announcement on Monday at the closing ceremony for the 2018 Batch 'B' Stream 1 Orientation Course at the NYSC Camp in Obubra Local Government Area of the State.

The Governor was heavily represented by the Commissioner for Youth and Sports, Mr Asu Okang, who made that the upward review became necessary following the high cost of goods and services in Nigeria.
"Dear corps members, I must salute you for the successful completion of your three weeks orientation programme which I believe was interesting.
"I am happy to announce to all of you that we have increased your monthly allowance from N3,100 to N5,000 starting from your batch," he said.
He described corps members as trustees of the nation, noting that their valid contributions in all sectors of the economy cannot be underestimated.
"Since the creation of Cross River, the largest contributor to the socio-economic development of the state is the NYSC. 
"This is evident in the kind of Community Development Services provided by members of the corps across the state. 
"While we continue to appreciate your predecessors for making historical landmark in the state, I charge you to outshine their legacies by going the extra mile towards supporting the dream of a new Cross River. 
"We are also confident that as the cloud of the next general elections begin to gather, your neutrality will help in giving the guarantee for free, fair and credible elections," he said.
