FG confirms N30,000 minimum wage to NYSC corp members

Nigeria’s minister of Finance, Mrs Zainab Ahmed disclosed in a press conference on Thursday, May 16, in Abuja that the Nation Youth Corp Member (NYSC)will be collecting N30,000 as their new salary.

The disclosure was made by the minister of finance, Zainab Ahmed, who, however, noted that the federal government is still working out modalities before the implementation of the new allowance for corps member.
She said:
The other aspect that should be clear is that there is an increase for the NYSC as well because NYSC, by its Act, is designed that they earn the minimum wage.”
“So, NYSC allowance also has to increase to N30, 000. So, I cannot give you projections right now because the negotiations are not yet concluded.”
