Ibrahim made this known while speaking at a workshop/training on Freedom of Information Act for Desk Officers of the NYSC in Abuja, on Friday.

Asked when the payment of N30,000 allowance for corps members would take-off, the DG said: “They will be communicated accordingly, please.”

Speaking on the workshop on Freedom of Information Act, Shuaibu Ibrahim said it is aimed at consolidating on the successes recorded by the scheme regarding the use of the FOIA.
