Governor Abubakar Sani Bello Approves New Pay For Corps Members
Niger State Governor Abubakar Sani Bello on Wednesday approved the upward review of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) members’ allowances posted to the state from N3,000 to N5,000, with effect from July 2016.
The Governor who gave the approval during the closing ceremony of the 2016 Batch A Stream 2 Orientation Course at the NYSC orientation camp, at Paiko, said that despite the dwindling resources of the country, the state government remained committed to the welfare of the corps members.
He, therefore directed all the local government councils in the state to join in the welfare programme for the corps members, warning that no ministry should reject corps members posted to them for their primary assignment.
His words: “The corps members must be given the necessary support to enable them to feel comfortable and contribute their quota to the development of the state. No matter how small the resources are, we will make their stay comfortable.”
