NYSC denies corps member’s allowance

The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has denied reports that it had increased monthly stipends of corps members to N31,800.

It was reported that following President Muhammadu Buhari assent of the National Minimum wage bill last week, news made the rounds that the NYSC scheme will also increase its allowances to corps members from N19,800 to N31,800.

However, a deputy director at Scheme headquarters Abuja, Eddy Megwa, told journalists on Wednesday that the Federal Government had not instructed the scheme’s authorities on any increase.

He said: “The NYSC does not pay corps members any sum of money directly as stipends but the federal government does.

Until the government is ready to implement the N30,000 minimum wage, we cannot say what corps members will earn for their service to the nation.

“Disregard any figure you find making the rounds on social media. When the Federal Government is ready, it will inform us, NYSC and we will announce it to corps members through official channels”, he said.
