Written by COMFORT 95.1FM on October 24, 2019
Members of National Youth Service Corps will soon have cause to smile as they are expected to receive the new minimum wage as allowance once the implementation commences.
Minister of Youth and Sports, Sunday Dare, who brought this to the fore in a Twitter post yesterday evening, also said the federal government had begun planning for the payment of the minimum wage to youth corp members.
He said the NYSC Director-General, Shuaibu Ibrahim, would provide details of the new allowance after a briefing from the Ministries of Finance and Youth and Social Development.
Youth corps members are currently being paid about N19,800 monthly as allowance by the federal government.
