Federal Govt allocates N500 daily feeding allowance for NYSC corp members

The Nigerian government has announced that henceforth National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) members will receive N500 as daily feeding allowance.

Director General of the NYSC, Johnson Bamidele Olawumi, made the announcement at a House of Representatives Committee hearing on the N4,000 online registration fee mandated for corps members.

A civil society group launched a ‘Say No Campaign’ to protest the registration fee. It was during the hearing that Olawumi made the announcement about the new feeding allowance.
