NYSC To Increase Corps Members Allowances

Good news to the intending youth corp members, as NYSC to increase corp members allowances according to the out going DG Brig-Gen Johnson Bamidele Olawumi in Abuja while handing over to the new director-general of the scheme, Brig.-Gen. Sule Kazaure.

The National Youth Service Corp (NYSC) scheme was created in a bid to reconstruct, reconcile and rebuild the country after the Nigerian Civil war. The unfortunate antecedents in our national history gave impetus to the establishment of the National Youth Service Corps by decree No.24 of 22nd May 1973 which stated that the NYSC is being established “with a view to the proper encouragement and development of common ties among the youths of Nigeria and the promotion of national unity”.

NYSC To Raise Corpers Allowance

The management of the scheme had drawn the attention of the Federal Government on the need to increase corpers allowances. Olawumi said there was positive signal that the federal government would grant the request.

“We have brought to federal government’s attention the urgent need to increase some of the allowances due to corps members and recent response suggests a strong ray of light at the end of the tunnel. “The major challenge I had as director-general of the scheme is the increasing corps population which was accompanied with dwindling financial resources. “It is rather unfortunate that we could not execute some major programmes and activities due to paucity of funds. Series of letters that have been written and necessary follow up to the appropriate authorities on the need for proper funding of the scheme.

This is actually not the first time promise on the increment of corpers allowance had been made. Early in the year 2015, Forty Nine Thousand and Eight Hundred (49,800) promise had been made to the out going corpers which raised a lot of hope in terms of the much clamored and expected change to emerge and till they passed out it was just a mirage.

The New DG Brig-Gen Sule Kazaure pledged to give corps and staff welfare priority, and called on them to support him to make the scheme achieve more success. He said: “The task ahead is enormous and the road looks very rough but with sincerity of purpose we will make progress.’’ He, therefore, enjoined the staff to be more proactive to enable the NYSC achieve the desired success in line with the vision of the present administration.
