The reported increase in NYSC allowance is a rumour


The official twitter handle of the NYSC today replied an enquiry by a supposed inquisitive corp member about the reported increase in the NYSC allowance.

This writer, however, tweeted at NYSC to confirm the credibility of the APC Newspaper’s tweet about the allowance increase and @officialnysc replied saying it is a rumour.

However, the Director General, National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), Brig. Gen. Suleiman Kazaure recently has reportedly said the Federal Government has already started the review of the NYSC corps members’ allowance.

Kazaure said the NYSC received a letter from the Presidency through the Ministry of Youth and Sports Development adding that the process to review the allowance of corps members had started.

The DG also said that the Presidency also copied the Ministry of Finance in the letter.

Kazaure announced this on Thursday, August 2, 2018, during a tour of the NYSC orientation camp in Abuja.
