Corpers Now Get N500 Daily Feeding Allowances From FG


The federal government has allocated N500 as daily feeding allowance for members of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC). This was disclosed yesterday by the Director General of the NYSC, Brigadier-General Johnson Bamidele Olawumi.

He made the disclosure at a House of Representatives Committee on Public Petition investigative public hearing on the N4,000 online registration fee imposed on prospective corps members by the corps...but the question now is, "was there no feeding allowance before? If there was, how much was it? will this lead to an increase in the monthly allowee which is currently N19,800?"


  1. Smh for our govt...N500

  2. Corpers were given allowances to manage and support themselves.. But adding 500 to it doesn't make any diff..N500 feeding allowance? A day..this is not fair. An avearge nigerian spend abt 1k on feeding a day
