The Director-General (DG) of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) Brig. Gen. Shuaibu Ibrahim, has told corps members that their monthly allowance of N19,800 would be increased immediately the federal government begins payment of the new minimum wage.
He made this known through Mrs Adenike Adeyemi, NYSC Director of Press and Public Relations, in a statement on Monday.
Brig. Gen. Shuaibu Ibrahim also promised corps members across the country improved welfare.
According to Adeyemi, “He said efforts are in top gear at all levels to ensure adequate welfare for all corps members.
“He, however, advised them not to embark on unauthorised journeys that may endanger their lives, warning that such journeys would earn them sanctions from the corps.
“He warned that violators of NYSC bye-laws would be dealt with in line with its rules.”
She also said that Ibrahim had warned the corps members to avoid issues that would promote political, religious and tribal differences, but instead work to unite the country.
