Nigeria: NYSC DG Reveals When Corps Members Will Get New Minimum Wage

The Director General, National Youth Service Corps, NYSC, Major General Suleiman Kazaure rtd. has said that the increment of allowances for Corps Members will be considered as soon as the minimum wage increment was sorted.
Speaking today in Abuja during the swearing-in ceremony of 3,022 Batch A Corps members into the FCT orientation camp, he said all hope was not lost as the scheme was waiting for the Federal Government to sign the minimum wage into law.
He urged the newly sworn in Corps members to conduct themselves properly while in camp and shun drugs.
Kazaure told them to remain patriotic when they are posted to their communities of primary assignments and ensure that they make impacts in their host communities.
He also urged them to tap into the Skills Acquisition and Entrepreneurial Development (SAED) programme carried out by the scheme to train corps members on various skills that will help them become entrepreneurs rather than job seekers.
