NYSC reacts to report on fresh Allowee package for Corps Members …. says it’s misrepresentation of facts

NYSC management has observed with dismay, the misrepresentation of facts by some Members of the press during the visit of NYSC Director General, Brigadier General YD Ahmed to Ogun State Orientation Camp in Sagamu, yesterday.


The scheme in its reaction to the said news report signed by Eddy Megwa,Director, Information and Public Relations said;


“For clarity sake, General Ahmed while addressing Corps Members said it is expected that they would benefit from the minimum wage when it is approved, he did not say the President has approved any increment in Corps Members’ allowance.


‘Meanwhile, as part of his oversight functions during Orientation periods, the Director General advised the Corps Members on different issues relating to patriotism, entrepreneurship, security consciousness, community development among other issues of youth development for leadership roles”.


NYSC therefore urged members of the press to be factual in their reportage of NYSC activities, so as not to incite unnecessary apprehension among the Scheme’s stakeholders.
