Minimum Wage: I Never Said Tinubu Has Increased Corps Members’ Allowance – DG

 

The National Youth Service Corps, NYSC, Director General, Brigadier General YD Ahmed has debunked reports quoting him as saying that the government has increased allowance of youth corpers.

 

He made the denial on Sunday at the Ogun State Orientation Camp in Sagamu.

 

The Scheme, according to a statement signed by Eddy Megwa Director, Information and Public Relations, clarified that General Ahmed, while addressing corps members, he said it is expected that they would benefit from the minimum wage when it is approved.

 

The NYSC said its director did not say “the President has approved any increment in corps members’ allowance.”

 

Meanwhile, as part of his oversight functions during orientation periods, the Director General advised the corps members on different issues relating to patriotism, entrepreneurship, security consciousness, community development among other issues of youth development for leadership roles.
