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.

NYSC allowance should be raised to N50,000 – Fayose

Ayodele Fayose, the Governor of Ekiti State has called on the Federal Government to review the monthly allowance currently paid to members of the National Youth Service Corps, NYSC.

Corps members across the country receive a monthly stipend of N19, 500.

The Governor wants the money to be increased to N50, 000.

He said the current allowance was no longer able to sustain corps members under the current economic situation in the country.

The governor, while addressing corps members on Saturday during a tour of the NYSC orientation camp at Ise-Emure, decried the deplorable condition of the camp and promised immediate the release of N20 million naira for the renovation of the camp.

Fayose challenged the Federal Government to live up to its responsibility by coming out to tackle headlong, the challenges confronting NYSC, adding that the welfare of corps members should be a priority.

He pledged his constant support for the scheme and encouraged the corps members to be determined to break the jinx of poverty by being diligent.

    1. Thank you Onuigbo Paul. with prayers and proper planning, the scheme will attain greater heights. it is not totally right to terminate the scheme, rather, fresh ideas should be incorporated to add to the ones on ground, thereby making the scheme more of a training ground from where the corp member becomes self-reliant and contribute meaningfully to nation-building upon exit from NYSC.

  3. Presently servin in ogun state D gate way, i must comfess ogun is the worst of all states in nigeria, D government dont pay a dime and d governor cannot even payed a visit to d corp member in camp.

  4. unlike lagos,Enugu and other few states.the rest of the state should see their allawance as a challeng.service is just a one yr opportunity for corps members

  5. Pls the national assembly should come up with a bill about the increament of NYSC alawee. This wil enable corpers to save and it wil reduce unemployment after service. God bless Nigeria.

  6. I was a batch A Corps member 2015,completing my service in Ekiti state after I had relocated from Sokoto state.
    Until this very morning I’m still owed three months FG allowances which amount to a sum of #59,400:00. It will be foolhardy for one father or mother to eat up my sweat after I had served my country tirelessly and in hunger during the period.
    I appeal to the apposite authority to come to my aid.

  7. El-rufai, Kaduna state is not paying kobo to any Nysc corp members. Except only #19800 that came from federal government. Kaduna state is one of the worse state to serve. I’m presently serving there now, we are seriously suffering now, no network in places, no market to buy things, no churches, no mosque, no social life any, it is a pity I made choice for Kaduna.

  8. I’m a coper, the way they are treating copers in this country is nothing to write home about,how much is 19800, no organization is ready to pay or give accommodation to any coper, which is not encouraging at all things are expensive now and still they will us without kobo. the best thing is to cancel this nysc. things are getting harder for copers in Nigeria.

  9. zamfara state government is not paying anything to serving corper, it is just a political story saying that they are paying #3000. We the batch “B” corpers have not recieve anything upto now wooo

Gone to the NYSC office at d federal secretariat to complain twice and nothing has been done about it yet. What do u do cos it won’t be fair if my money is taken after working so hard for it

  13. I can see some very stingy states. Even though they receive more from the FG. God help corp members sha.

  14. Why is it that Govt donot consider the plight of serving corps members? D delay in payment of allowance is a serious punishment on their path of corpers. The Govt should please help them by paying the allowance immediately the month ends.

  15. pls let’s some state Government do something concerning the state allowee, let
    them consider the distance from a corp member to their state including TP, accommodation n cost of living, pls n pls… I believe Akwa ibom, Lagos, Enugu, + few dat pay up2 7k are trying …so pls since F.G. refuse 2do something wit corp members, let S.G. do.
