The Director General of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has given an update on the Corps members receiving at least ₦30,000 which is the current minimum wage in the country.
Recall that the federal government is already making plans to start paying corps members the new minimum wage but the question is when will the payment start.
Yesterday, during a workshop/training on Freedom of Information Act for Desk Officers of the NYSC in Abuja, the DG of the NYSC, Shuaibu Ibrahim was asked when the payment of ₦30,000 allowance for corps members would take-off and his response was”
“They will be communicated accordingly, please.”
From the looks of things, it seems that the FG is trying to make sure that the corps members, who are currently receiving a token of ₦19,800 per month, are not left out in the new minimum wage.
