Brig. Gen. Shuaibu Ibrahim, Director-General of National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has stated that the scheme will communicate to corps members when the payment of N30,000 new allowance would commence.
The Director General made this known on Friday at a workshop/training on Freedom of Information Act for Desk Officers of the NYSC in Abuja.
According to the NYSC boss, the workshop/training is aimed at consolidating on the success recorded by the scheme regarding the use of the FOIA.
Brig. Gen. Ibrahim stated that the scheme had grappled with challenges, which were occassioned by “apparent lack of knowledge of our policies and operations by a section of the public.”
“Since the enactment of the Freedom of Information Act in 2011, the NYSC has been in the forefront of ensuring total compliance with the provisions of the Act,” Ibrahim stated.
He urged the general public to familiarise themselves with the NYSC Act so as to understand the operations of the scheme and its role.
