Corp members paid visit to President Muhammadu Buhari to thank him for increase in their allowance from N19,800 to N33,000.
They were represented by Yinka Kolawole, Aisha Umar Bello, Agatha Nwakego and Tim Abasiandikan Udo.
Corp Member Aisha Bello spoke on behalf of her colleagues and also described the President Buhari as a loving and caring father.
In her words, she also said that the increment in their allowance is a wake up call for them to show more commitment in the discharge of their statutory responsibilities as Corps Members to their fatherland.
“The implementation of the increment at a time we least expected drew tears of joy from many of us. Indeed, some of us had regarded several promises of the increment with doubt
Therefore, your Excellency, by this singular action, you have demonstrated to us that you are a caring and loving father that is committed to the welfare of his children
We wish to assure you from our hearts that in the spirit of patriotism with renewed vigour, we shall always abide by the objectives of the NYSC Scheme in our conduct“
