Brigadier General YD Ahmed, the Director-General of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), has said Corps members will benefit from the new minimum wage, only if approved by President Bola Tinubu.

Ekiti News reports that the NYSC DG disclosed this during his visit to the Ogun State Orientation Camp in Sagamu.

He explained that the benefit is contingent on the approval of the minimum wage, countering reports that the President has already approved an increase in corps members’ allowances.

This was contained in a statement signed by the Director, Information and Public Relations, NYSC, Eddy Megwa, on Monday, in Abuja.

The statement read in part, “For clarity sake, General Ahmed while addressing Corps Members said it is expected that they would benefit from the minimum wage when it is approved, he did not say the President has approved any increment in Corps Members’ allowance.

“Meanwhile, as part of his oversight functions during Orientation periods, the Director General advised the Corps Members on different issues relating to patriotism, entrepreneurship, security consciousness, community development among other issues of youth development for leadership roles.

“Members of the press are advised to be factual in their reportage of NYSC activities, so as not to incite unnecessary apprehension among the Scheme’s stakeholders.”
