NYSC Director-General, Brigadier General Suleiman Kazaure has revealed plans by the Federal Government to review the allowances of Corps Members.
Kazaure gave this revelation today while addressing the 2018 Batch ‘B’ Corps Members deployed to the Federal Capital Territory at the NYSC Orientation Camp in Kubwa, Abuja.
He said government is taking every necessary step towards reviewing Corps Members’ allowance.
The NYSC Boss advised the Corps Members to seize the opportunity provided by the Scheme’s skill acquisition programme to empower themselves to be self-reliant during and after the service year.
‘‘You are the future leaders and our hope is in you”, the DG added.
He charged them to be good ambassadors of the Scheme and their families with a call to ensure that Nigeria remains indivisible.
Brigadier General Kazaure also cautioned them against unnecessary journies and indecent dressing, adding that they should be security conscious at all times.
Earlier, the FCT Coordinator, Mallam Ballama Bello, informed the Director-General that the Corps Members had since acquainted themselves with the ideals of the scheme and that the Orientation Course was going on smoothly.
