Following the signing into law by the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd), on Tuesday, the National Youth Service Corps members across the 36 states and Federal Capital Territory will soon receive the new minimum wage.
This was revealed in an interview by the Director General of the NYSC, Brig. Gen. Shuaibu Ibrahim on Saturday shortly after the closing ceremony of the 2019 Batch “C” Stream II orientation course for corps members deployed in Nasarawa State. The ceremony held at the Magaji Dan Yamusa NYSC permanent orientation camp in Keffi.
He noted that, “The new minimum wage is captured in the 2020 budget and thank God President Muhammadu Buhari signed it into law yesterday and as soon as the implementation commences, corps members across the 36 states of the federation, including Federal Capital Territory, would start benefit from it.”
He emphasized on the issue of security, claiming that corp members will not be posted to places with the potentials of insurgency anymore.
