The NYSC DG had said in December that the allowance of corps members was being reviewed to reflect the new minimum wage of N30,000 per month by 2020 as it had been captured in the 2020 appropriation bill which was yet-to-be-assented by President Buhari at the time.

Once signed into law by Mr. President, payment will commence. The Hon Minister of Youth and Sports Development reiterated this too when he addressed the Corps members in Lagos,” the NYSC boss had said in December.

Also, the Minister of Youth and Sports Development, Sunday Dare, in a statement released from his media office during his visit to NYSC camp in Iyana-Ipaja, Lagos State in December, confirmed that the payment will commence in 2020.
