Allowee still 19800, no plans to increase NYSC monthly allowance � DG


Members of the National Youth Service Corps may have to wait longer for an upward review of their monthly allowance as the Federal Government has said it has no plan for such at the moment, Dailypost can authoritatively report.

The Director General of the National Youth Service Corps, NYSC, Brigadier General, Nnamdi Okore Affia, dropped this hint yesterday while addressing the 2013 Batch A corps members deployed to Katsina State.

In his words, �Let me be honest with you, there is no plan to increase your monthly allowance; all you have heard is nothing but rumours.”

According to Affia, �If there is such plan, I must be the first person to know, but as far as I am concerned there is no official plan to increase your allowance; even if the plan is on the pipeline, it has not reached my level. Your monthly allowance is still N19, 800,” he said.

He urged the corps members to respect the religion and culture of their host community, saying �you should understand very well the dos and don’ts of your host community.”

He further pleaded with them to be good ambassadors of their families, schools, home states and the country at large.

Earlier, Katsina Director of NYSC ,Mr E O Afolalu said a total of 1, 917 corps members have been registered in Katsina for the 2013 batch A.
