NYSC Urges Government to Pay Corps Members in Ministries
The NYSC coordinator in Ondo state, Mrs. Grace Apkabio has appealed to the state government to consider paying corps members serving with government ministries and agencies monthly allowance as part of motivation.
Mrs. Akpabio made the appeal when she paid a courtesy visit on the new commissioner for sports and youths development, Mr. Akindotun Owanikin in his Office.
The NYSC coordinator described situations where corps members serving with government establishments were not paid monthly stipends or other forms of motivation as not good.
Mrs. Akpabio urged the new commissioner to use his influence in achieving the request so that corps members’ welfare would be enhanced.
In a remark, the new commissioner, Mr. Akindotun Owanikin who rated NYSC high in the areas of rural development and unity in the country, promised that the case made by the Ondo state NYSC Coordinator will be looked into.
