The National Youth Service Corps, NYSC, said it has observed with dismay, the misrepresentation of facts on social media concerning the visit of Scheme Director General, Brigadier General YD Ahmed to Ogun State Orientation Camp in Sagamu, on Sunday.

The Scheme, according to a statement signed by Eddy Megwa Director, Information and Public Relations, clarified that General Ahmed, while addressing corps members, said it is expected that they would benefit from the minimum wage when it is approved.

The NYSC said its director did not say “the President has approved any increment in corps members’ allowance.”

Meanwhile, as part of his oversight functions during orientation periods, the Director General advised the corps members on different issues relating to patriotism, entrepreneurship, security consciousness, community development among other issues of youth development for leadership roles.
