A Corps Member has been reported to have offered President Muhammadu Buhari another term in office for increasing their monthly allowance to N33,000.
This was disclosed on Friday by Bashir Ahmad, Personal Assistant on new media to President Buhari.
Ahmad had however gone ahead to reject the offer on behalf of the president, reiterating that Buhari will not stay in office beyond May 29, 2023, when his second term in office as constitutionally allowed will expire.
HILARIOUS! After #NYSCAlert, this Corper wrote on his Facebook that someone should help him ask President Buhari if he’d like to go for 4th term, Baba should just say what he wants, Corpers will deliver for him.
Anyway, Baba’s 2nd and last tenure will end on May 29, 2023.

Meanwhile, the Minister of Youths and Sports Development, Mr. Sunday Dare has also appreciated President Buhari for approving the N33,000 for the Corp Members under the National Youth Service Corps scheme.
He said the move is a testimony of the President’s commitment to the development of Nigeria’s youth population.
