Gov. Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu State has pledged the willingness of his administration to upgrade allowances of members of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) serving in the state.
Ugwuanyi made the disclosure in Enugu on Thursday during the passing-out ceremony of 2017 Batch ‘A’ Stream 1 corps members in the state.
The state government recently increased allowances of medical and paramedical corps members serving in the rural areas from N3, 800 to N30, 000.
The governor, who was represented at the event by the Special Assistant on Special Duties, Mr Uwakwe Azikiwe, said the gesture would soon be extended to the rest of the corps members.
“Recently, the state government upgraded the allowance of medical and paramedical personnel and very soon this gesture will be extended to other corps members in the state.
“As a responsible government, we will make sure that your state allowances will continue to be paid as and when due,” he said.
