NYSC Updates on N31,800 Corpers’ Allowance

The Lagos State coordinator of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), Mohammed Momoh, has said the federal government is yet to release a circular ordering the implementation of the newly approved minimum wage for corps members.

Former NYSC Director General, Suleiman Kazaure, had assured that there would be an increase in the payment for corps members in accordance with the increment in national workers’ wage.

The federal government in April 2019 had approved the N30,000 minimum wage for workers in the country by signing it into law. However, the law is yet to be implemented by NYSC.

Reacting to this, Momoh in an interview with TVC News said the service is waiting for the federal government to give it the go ahead to begin the implementation of the new law.

“The effective date of implementation would be stated on the circular and any corps member that falls within that said period and is qualified for the monthly allowance would benefit from the increase if and when the implementation starts.

“Corps members are Nigerians and it is only expected that they would benefit from the increase. At the appropriate time, the federal government would fix the allowance for corps members. This would then be made public by the NYSC.
