Ibrahim announced this during a working visit to the NYSC secretariat in Bauchi.

He said the increase is in line with the new minimum wage approved by the federal government.

According to a statement released on the service’ official Facebook page, Ibrahim said provisions for the new allowance have been made in the 2020 budget and “payment would commence as soon as funds are released by the appropriate authorities”.


In September, Ibrahim had hinted that the monthly allowance of corps members would be increased “immediately the federal government starts the payment of the new minimum wage”.

“Efforts are in top gear at all levels to ensure adequate welfare for all corps members.”
Sunday Dare, the minister of youth and sports development, also confirmed the increase although he did not provide details.
