NYSC: Makinde increases Oyo monthly allowance – Oyo State Governor, Seyi Makinde has increased the monthly allowance of their National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) members in the state from N5,000 to N15,000.

The governor made this known on Thursday during his visit to the NYSC camp at Iseyin in Oyo State, and this put the corp members in a jubilant mood. 

The announcement, one day after he reduced the Ladoke Akintola University of Technology (LAUTECH) tuition fees, sent the graduates into jubilation.

In a tweet, Makinde assured them that the issues raised by the NYSC State Commandant would be addressed.

The governor disclosed that it was during his youth service in Port Harcourt that he got a job and met his wife.

“I am an example of how the national youth service could foster national integration. I wished them the best for the future.”
