Thanks to a committee at the National Conference, unemployed Nigerian graduates may soon start earning a monthly allowance of N19,800, the same amount earned by members of the National Youth Service Corps.
The conference’s Committee on Law, Judiciary, Human Rights and Legal Reform made the proposal, and is pushing for its acceptance at the plenary and by the Federal Government, Punch reports.
“The recommendation is our own way of finding solutions to the rising wave of crime in the country and to also force the government to do the needful for the increasing number of unemployed graduates in the country.
We have done our part and it is left for the delegates to either reject or accept it at plenary,” said a committee member.
