Corpers To Benefit From New Minimum Wage, Says NYSC | MarvelTvUpdates

The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has said an earlier claim that President Bola Tinubu has announced a fresh allowance package for corps members is false.

However, NYSC spokesman, Eddy Megwa, in a statement on Monday, said while the claim of a new package is not true, the corp members will benefit from the new minimum wage.

Megwa said the NYSC management observed with dismay the misrepresentation of facts by some members of the press during the visit of NYSC Director General, Brigadier General YD Ahmed, to the Ogun State orientation camp in Sagamu on Saturday.

“For clarity’s sake, General Ahmed while addressing corps members said it is expected that they would benefit from the minimum wage when it is approved, he did not say the President has approved any increment in their allowance,” Megwa said.

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

Ahmed has also urged members of the press to be factual in their reportage of NYSC activities, so as not to incite unnecessary apprehension among the scheme’s stakeholders.
