Megwa said the NYSC does not pay corps members directly, and that any new development will be duly communicated.

He said: “The NYSC does not pay corps members any sum of money directly as stipends but the federal government does.

“Until the government is ready to implement the N30,000 minimum wage, we cannot say what corps members will earn for their service to the nation.
