Corps members may have cause to smile as the Director General of National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), Brigadier General Suleiman Kazaure, has stated that the long awaited wage review for corps members would soon be announced.
Kazaure made this known on Saturday, November 2, when he visited Enugu state NYSC orientation camp in Awgu.
Kazaure said that the expected release of report by a committee set up by federal government to review the minimum wage will address the call to review corps members allowance in the country.
He therefore asked corps members to exercise patience, noting that he was hopeful the report will put smiles on the faces of the serving members.
The NYSC DG further announced that the NYSC integrated farm settlements were being resuscitated in various areas to encourage corps members participate in agricultural programmes.
NYSC coordinator in the state, Ahmed Ikaka said that plans have been perfected to address the perennial water challenges at the camp, adding that it was also addressing security challenges by constructing perimeter fending at the camp.
Ikaka decried non availability of utility vehicle as one of the major challenge confronting the scheme in the state.
