The long expectation of corp members to have their monthly allowance finally increased has been reinvigorated. This follows a disclosure by the Minister of Youth and Sports Development, Sunday Dare that serving corps members of the National Youth Service Corps will enjoy increased allowance as a result of the N30, 000 minimum wage from next year.
The minister said that increase in the allowances earned by corps members have been captured in the 2020 budget recently passed by the National Assembly.
Dare spoke during a visit to the orientation camp of the NYSC in Iyana-Ipaja, Lagos state.
In a statement by his media office in Abuja, Dare assured the corps members that the increase will be effected once it is signed into law.
