Federal Government Increases NYSC Allowance
Nigeria’s Minister of Finance Zainab Ahmed, disclosed this on Thursday in Abuja during a press conference.
She said the government is still working out modalities before the implementation of the new allowance for the corps members.
“The total implication of that would be worked out only after the negotiations and that would involve determining how much increase every other employee above the minimum wage would get.
“Because by the Act they should earn at least the minimum wage and the NYSC also has to increase to that N30, 000,” Ahmed said.
“So, because we have not done the negotiation with labour, I cannot give you the details of what we are projecting because it is simply on projections, at the end of the day, it is what we agree with labour that will be the amount that is due,” she said.
Sahara Reporters reports that corps members will earn the new minimum wage.
