OYO STATE Governor Seyi Makinde has promised to increase the monthly allowance of corps members serving in the southwest state from N5,000 to N15,000.
‘’I assured the youth corps members that we would address the issues raised by the Commandant about the state of the camp,” Governor Makinde tweeted on his official handle on Thursday.
“I also told them we would increase their allowance from N5,000 to N15,000,” the Governor gave the assurance when he visited the National Youth Service Corps – NYSC, Permanent Orientation Camp at Iseyin.
He lauded the NYSC for building bridges of unity in Nigeria, saying, “I also shared with them how it was during my national youth service in Port-Harcourt that I got a job and met and married my lovely wife, Ominini Makinde.”
“So, I am an example of how the national youth service could foster national integration. I wished them the best for the future.
