“Chances of government increasing NYSC Allawee….” – Minister of youth reveals



Nigerian minister of Youth, Bio Ibrahim has disclosed that it was not certain that the federal government will increase the monthly allowance of members of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC).

Bio Ibrahim had stated this while appearing as a guest on Channels Television’s Sunday Politics programme, on February 4.

With food inflation and increasing cost of living over the past months, there have been calls by young Nigerians serving in the NYSC scheme that the federal government raise their monthly allowance colloquially called, ‘alawee’ .

Asked whether or not there are immediate plans to increase the monthly allowance of corps members on Sunday, February 4, the minister replied:“We can’t say for sure. We all understand that resources are dwindling, even oil revenues are not as they used to be, but we will find innovative ways of ensuring that corps members’ welfare are well-taken of.”
