NYSC Allowance. How much is NYSC Members paid in the new administration? How does federal government Nigeria want to start paying NYSC members? How much is NYSC allowance now? These are an important question to ask.
It might interest you to know that NYSC as an abbreviation or National Youth Service Corp at an expression did not appear in any paragraph in the manifestos in the immediate past electioneering campaign.
The Federal Government has increased the monthly allowance of members of the National Youths Service Corps (NYSC) to N30,000. This was disclosed by the Minister of Finance, Mrs Zainab Ahmed, on Thursday, in Abuja, during a media briefing on the activities of her ministry. According to the minister, with the recent minimum wage bill signed into law by President Muhammadu Buhari, corps members will no longer earn N18,000 monthly.
She, however, noted that the Federal Government is still working out practicalities before the implementation of the new allowance for corps members. “The financial implications have been worked out by the presidential committee that was set up and they have submitted their report to the President and the President has directed the report to us,” she said.
“We have looked at the report and what we are working on now is how we can finance the new minimum wage.
“The total financial implications will be determined after negotiations. The negotiation will determine what every other staff that is above the minimum wage will get. It could be a flat amount or a progression.
“The other aspect that should be clear is that there is an increase for the NYSC as well because NYSC, by its Act, is designed that they earn the minimum wage.
“So, NYSC allowance also has to increase to N30, 000. So, I cannot give you projections right now because the negotiations are not yet concluded,” she added.
Corp members still managed this meeker pay despite changes in prices of good and services across the country.
How Much Do NYSC Members Collect Every Month
This is a very complex question and it does not have a clear answer. Apart from the federal allowance of N19,800, many corp members may get other forms of payment from their place of primary assignment – depending on their course of study, ppa and location.
Pay Per Course of Study
For instance, a corp member who is a medical doctor in a teaching hospital may receive nothing less than N150-200 per month along with the N19,800 Federal Allowance.
Same with a corp member who is an engineer working in Agip, Mobil or Chevron. They monthly pay cannot be the same with a corp member who is a classroom teacher in one remote village like that.
Pay Per Location
It’s obvious that some States in Nigeria pays better than others, while some do not even pay a dime. States like Akwa Ibom pays the highest (N10,000 per month), followed by Lagos, Enugu, Oyo and Sokoto State.
