The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has revealed that corps members will start enjoying the N30,000 new minimum wage.
The Federal Government had ordered that the new minimum wage starts rolling out on or before December 31, 2019.
Brig. Gen. Shuaibu Ibrahim, the Director General of the NYSC, had stated this in Abuja during an interview with journalists on Tuesday.
Naija Buzz News had reported that the Minister of Youth and Sports, Sunday Dare, had noted that NYSC would begin enjoying N30,000 allowance too.
Speaking to journalists, the NYSC DG, said; “we are going to commence payment as directed by the Federal Government. I spoke to corps members when I visited Jigawa State about four days ago. I told them that they had also benefitted from the minimum wage. They were so excited and were praying for the Federal Government, saying it will engender them to perform more duties for the country.
“Once the government commences with the civil servants, the corps members will enjoy the same. Our minister has directed that further details will be communicated to us by the minister of finance.”
