FG commences payment of December allowance to Corps Members.
The Federal Government of Nigeria have commenced the payment of December 2019 allowance to Corps Members on Sunday morning.
We at nyscinfo.com promised you two weeks ago that your December allowance will officially be paid before the 25th of December 2019, and here is the testament.
But, the sad part of the December allowance is that it’s still the normal N19,800, but be rest assured that the payment of the new minimum wage is still on the way, don’t lose hope yet, you’ll still get it and those that have passed out from the service will still get it in arrears, starting from April when it was passed into law by the President.
Recall that we announced last week that the Minister of Youth and Sports Development, Sunday Dare revealed that the serving corps members will enjoy increased allowance as a result of the N30,000 minimum wage from next year.
Below were the full details from the revelation.
Minister of Youth and Sports Development, Sunday Dare, has assured corps members that their allowance would be reviewed to reflect the new minimum wage of N30,000 per month by 2020.
Dare stated this in a statement released from his media office on Wednesday during his visit to the National Youth Service Corps orientation camp in Iyana-Ipaja, Lagos State.
He said, “Allowance of corps members would be reviewed to reflect the new minimum wage of N30,000 per month by 2020. The figure has been captured in next year’s budget.
“I have always advocated that Nigeria must invest in the youth. We at the ministry are refocussing the development of our youth in terms of programming.
“The ministry has developed a programme called DY.NG. We want it to be a two-month programme that you would run during your service, after which you will have some level of certification. It will give you that added advantage beyond your degree.”
Dare said all the corps members had been enlisted as Anti-Corruption Ambassadors to create awareness and make sure corruption did not thrive.
