Report On NYSC Allawee Increment 2020: Mohammed Momoh, Lagos state coordinator of the NYSC, says the management is looking up to the Federal Government to deliver a redundant implementation of the recently signed minimum wage concerning corps members.
“The active date of implementation would be declared on the release and any Corper that happens to be within that said time and is equipped for the NYSC monthly allawee would profit from the increment if and when the implementation begins,” he explains.
“Corps members are citizens, and it is only required that they would profit from the increase. At the set time, the federal government would place the allowance for corps members. This would then be made open by the NYSC.
“I do not doubt that the federal government would do the right thing for the minimum wage.”
Will Corp Members enjoy this increase in the minimum wage?
There had been issues about whether corpers would be suitable for minimum wage.
