Corps members to receive N19,800 monthly

ABUJA – The Federal Government has approved an increment in the monthly allowance of Corps members from N9,775  to N19,800.
The increment was conveyed in a letter from the Presidency to  the Office of the Director-General of the National Youth Service Corps, NYSC,  and sent to all state Coordinators of the NYSC.
Tsiga who spoke to newsmen, Monday, in Abuja said “I am delighted to inform you that The President and Commander-in- Chief, Goodluck Jonathan  has graciously approved increment in the Corps members allowances from N9,775.00 to N19,800.00 with effect from March,2011.
” The payment will take effect from March, 2011″ and the 2010 Batch ‘B’ Corps members that have just passed out from the scheme will therefore be paid in arrears” he said.
“They are serving their fatherland, we are posting them to states outside their state of origin, nobody gives them anything except the allowances and it has been stipulated in the law establishing the NYSC that the Federal, States, Local Government and other stakeholders should periodically review the allowances of the corps members”, he said.
He called on states and local governments to emulate the gesture of the Federal Government and improve on the allowances, accommodation and other welfare of the corps members as according to him,” the future of the country are  in their hands”.
