The Director-General of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), Shuaibu Ibrahim , says the scheme will reveal to corps members when it will begin payment of the N30,000 allowance.
Africa News24 (AN24) reports that the NYSC DG made this statement while speaking at a workshop/training on Freedom of Information Act for Desk Officers of the NYSC in Abuja, on Friday.
Asked when the payment of N30,000 allowance for corps members would take-off, the DG said: “They will be communicated accordingly, please.”
On the workshop on Freedom of Information Act, the NYSC DG said it is aimed at consolidating on the successes recorded by the scheme regarding the use of the FOIA.
The NYSC DG urged Nigerians to familiarise themselves with the NYSC Act so as to understand better, the operations of the scheme and its role.
