FG Increases NYSC allowance to N30,000

The Federal Government increased the monthly allowance of members of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) to 30,000.

Nigeria's finance minister, Ms. Zainab Ahmed, announced this on Thursday in Abuja during a press conference where she added that the sum total of N649.434 billion
 was verified by the ministry as a balance to be restored to state governments. "

She noted, however, that the federal government is still developing modalities before the implementation of the new allowance for body members.

She said, "The other aspect that should be clear is that there is also an increase for NYSC because NYSC, by its act, is designed to earn the minimum wage."

"So, the NYSC allowance also has to increase to N30,000. So I can not give you projections now because the negotiations are not yet completed."
