Oyo State Governor, Seyi Makinde has increased the monthly allowance of their National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) members in the state to N15,000 from N5,000.
Makinde made the disclosure on Thursday at the NYSC camp, Iseyin. The announcement, one day after he reduced the Ladoke Akintola University of Technology (LAUTECH) tuition fees, sent the graduates into jubilation.
In a tweet, Makinde assured them that the issues raised by the NYSC State Commandant would be addressed. The governor disclosed that it was during his youth service in Port Harcourt that he got a job and met his wife.
“I am an example of how the national youth service could foster national integration. I wished them the best for the future.”
In 2019, Makinde increased the monthly allowance from N4,000 to N5,000, during an induction programme for Batch ‘B’ Streams I & II.
