FG Increases NYSC Monthly Allowance 2019
The Federal Government has increased the monthly allowance of National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) members to N30,000 (thirty thousand naira).
Nigeria’s Minister of Finance Zainab Ahmed, disclosed this on Thursday in Abuja during a press conference.
She said the government is still working out modalities before the implementation of the new allowance for the corps members.
“Because by the Act they should earn at least the minimum wage and the NYSC also has to increase to that N30, 000,” Ahmed said.
“So, because we have not done the negotiation with labour, I cannot give you the details of what we are projecting because it is simply on projections, at the end of the day, it is what we agree with labour that will be the amount that is due,” she said.
