Monthly allowance, Governor NYSC members

Adamawa State Governor, Ahmadu Fintiri, has announced N10,000 monthly allowance for the members of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) serving in the state.

The governor made the announcement at the swearing-in ceremony of 2023 Batch ‘C’ Stream II corps members deployed to Adamawa State at Damare Permanent Orientation Camp in Girei Local Government Area of the state on Tuesday.

Fintiri, who congratulated the NYSC members for being in the state, enjoined them to be security conscious.

He said: “The N10,000 is to cushion the effects of the fuel subsidy removal.

“My dear compatriots, your security is dear to us.

“I urge you to be security conscious and follow the personal security tips you are going to be exposed to by
 security experts in the course of your security lectures.

“In the same vein, refer to the distress call line on the Orientation Guide Booklets whenever you find yourselves in emergency situations.”

Governor Fintiri further urged the NYSC members to pay attention to the skills acquisition training in the camp “as white collar jobs are no longer available”.

“Adamawa is blessed with abundant opportunities with favourable, hospitable, and friendly business environment to all, irrespective of ethnic, religious, or sectional background,” he added.

In his remarks, the NYSC Coordinator in Adamawa State, Jingi Denis, thanked the state government for taking care of the NYSC members and staff over the years.

He urged the corps members to abide by the NYSC by-laws and be of good conduct, saying the orientation course is the first cardinal programme of the service year “and its significance can never be over stressed”.
