Jubilation as corps members receive N33,000 allowance

There was jubilation among serving members of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) over the payment of N33,000 increased allowance by the federal government, nearly a year after the new minimum wage law was signed.President Muhammadu Buhari had in April 2019, signed the national minimum wage bill into law — a move that gives workers a conditional right to take legal action if they’re paid less than N30,000.On Wednesday, Shuaibu Ibrahim, NYSC’s director-general, had announced an increase in corps members’ monthly stipends — from N19,800 to N33,000.The long re-iterated promise, however, materialized after corps members in some parts of the country confirmed the payment of their January allowance, with bank alerts reflecting the increase.
