The Minister of Youth and Sports Development, Sunday Dare, on Wednesday, said that corps members would begin to receive the new minimum wage of N30,000 by 2020.
The minister spoke during a visit to the National Youth Service Corps orientation camp in Iyana-Ipaja, Lagos State.
“I have always advocated that Nigeria must invest in the youth. We at the ministry are refocussing the development of our youth in terms of programming.
“The ministry has developed a programme called DY.NG. We want it to be a two-month programme that you would run during your service, after which you will have some level of certification. It will give you that added advantage beyond your degree.
“All corps members have been enlisted as Anti-Corruption Ambassadors to create awareness and make sure corruption did not thrive,” he said.
