Corps Members Visit President Buhari To Say Thank You For Salary Increase...

President Muhammadu Buhari has described the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) scheme as a laudable one that needs to be sustained as it affords the opportunity for Nigerian youths to understand the country better.

“People come from far and wide; some from Victoria Island in Lagos have not even been to Ikeja. They now find themselves in Daura and other parts of the country. Whenever I go to my town, I get in touch with members; some of them from Lagos, some from Port Harcourt,” he stated.

President Buhari who said this Thursday in Abuja while playing host to corps members who came on a thank-you visit to him, also praised General Yakubu Gowon for the initiative.

“Whenever I meet General Gowon up till today, I thank him for initiating the NYSC. It is a nationalist and patriotic thinking that led to the development of the scheme,” he added

Four members representing others countrywide came to convey their “deepest gratitude” to the President over the recent increase in their monthly allowances from N19,800 to N33,000.

According to them, “the implementation in January, when we least expected it brought tears of joy to us as we had doubts of the promises earlier made.”

“You have demonstrated that you are a loving and caring father committed to the welfare of his children,” they added.

They also reiterated their commitment to do their best during their period in the scheme. “The increase is a wake-up call to us to show more commitment to the affairs of our fatherland. We are great stakeholders in our collective determination of building a prosperous and united Nigeria, the future belongs to us.”

The NYSC members were led to the State House by the Minister of Youth and Sports Development, Sunday Dare and the Director General of the scheme Brigadier General Ibrahim Shehu.

    We really need sense.

  3. the corps members don't have any work to do at all.

  4. You have demonstrated that you are a loving and caring father committed to the welfare of his children,” they added.

    That was all I saw.Giving them Stella's side eye

  5. they are Lazy ozuor who instead of thinking of entrepreneurship are depending on the meager salary and crying tears of joy, rubbish

  6. Who selected the corps members that visited?
    These one are going back with nothing less than 200k thanks for coming.

  7. money that isn't up to 100 dollars

  8. When VAT has been increased? Robbing Paul to pay Peter. Yimu

  9. Poverty na bastard

  10. Nigerians are ingrates. This is a welcome development from what they were paid before. Instead you Try to cheapen the achievement. Would you rather they steal. Gosh... I can't deal

  11. This is a good move in the right direction. Someone else would have pocketed the change. Learn to give kudos when there is good. Everyday cannot be based on how daft Buhari is. Mind you if he is as dumb as you all make out, why is he seated as your president. Last laugh is on you.
