The Governor of Oyo State has announced plans to increase the Oyo State NYSC allowance from N5,000 to N15,000.
This was made known by the Governor on Thursday when he visited the NYSC camp in Iseyin, Oyo State.
According to the governor through his Twitter handle.
He said, “We visited the NYSC Permanent Orientation Camp at Iseyin this evening. I assured the youth corps members that we would address the issues raised by the Commandant about the state of the camp. I also told them we would increase their allowance from N5,000 to N15,000.”
He continued, “I also shared with them how it was during my national youth service in Port-Harcourt that I got a job and met and married my lovely wife, @iamominini. So, I am an example of how the national youth service could foster national integration. I wished them the best for the future.”
Recall that in 2019, the governor increased the allowance of Corps Members from N4,000 to N5,000.
Accordingly, only Corps Members serving in Public establishments in the State are entitled to receive the new increment.
