Corp Members React to Allawee Increase
By Goodnews Ndukwe
It seems like a good time to be a Corp member as the National Youth Service Corp (NYSC) has announced that Corp members’ monthly allowance is increased to N33,000.
This was made known in a statement by the Director General of the NYSC to Corp members in Bauchi State while on a working visit.
A cross section of Corp members in Lagos who spoke to Nigeria Info under anonymity could not contain their excitement.
“I can’t wait for them to start paying that amount of money honestly cos it is really not easy.”
“N19,800 has been really stressful, 19,800 has not really been helpful”
Some however expressed their scepticism saying till the money was paid, “na audio money,” and another said “we just hope that it’s been approved means it will be implemented.”
A few were indifferent saying “I’m not really thinking about it too much,” and “in a state like Lagos even that 33,000 will not be enough.”
