Youth Minister says Corps Members will Start Earning New Minimum Wage in 2020



The Minister of Youth and Sports Development, Sunday Dare, has assured corps members that their allowance will be reviewed to reflect the new minimum wage of ₦30,000 per month by 2020.

Dare stated this in a statement released from his media office on Wednesday during his visit to the National Youth Service Corps orientation camp in Iyana-Ipaja, Punch reports. He said:

Allowance of corps members would be reviewed to reflect the new minimum wage of N30,000 per month by 2020. The figure has been captured in next year’s budget. I have always advocated that Nigeria must invest in the youth. We at the ministry are refocusing the development of our youth in terms of programming.

The ministry has developed a programme called DY.NG. We want it to be a two-month programme that you would run during your service, after which you will have some level of certification. It will give you that added advantage beyond your degree.
