Petition Description: #PayCorpersArrears
I wish to use this medium to draw the attention of the Federal government toward the issue of payment of arrears.
The bill which established the new minimum wage was signed into law since April 2019 which means payment should commence from when the bill was signed into law.
It is worthy of note that all Federal workers have obtained payment in arrears whereas, Corps members are totally left behind.
Recall that under the administration of former President Jonathan the minimum wage was reviewed as Corps members who left the service even before full implementation were all paid in arrears.
Today we wish to know why the Federal Government kept mute over payment of Corps Members’ Arrears.
Corps members nationwide being future leaders and able youths of our great Nation deserve to know why we were left out in this issue of arrears.
Does FG feel that paying us arrears is a waste of money? Does FG realise that paying Corps members’ arrears means investing in us?
All Corps members have decided to ask questions and to know exactly why FG excluded us from getting Minimum wage arrears.
Below are the expected arrears in details
Following the announcement of the newly approved wage of N33,000 naira for Corps members by the Director General of the National youth service Corp – Brigadier General Shuaibu Ibrahim, Corps members expect as follows:
1. Corp members in 2019 Batch A will earn as much as N118,800 in areas covering the period between April and December of 2019.
2. Their colleagues in 2019 Batch B stream 1 will earn an estimated amount of N105,200 within the period of June and December while those in Batch B stream 2 will look forward to receiving the sum of N66,000.
3. Also, members in 2018 Batch B streams 1 and 2, and Batch C streams 1 and 2 are expected to earn N26,400, N39,600 and N79,200, N92,400 respectively.
Finally, I call on the relevant (NYSC) authorities to assists us to achieve this aim for the greater benefit of our country at large.
