SHOCKER! ! ! Corps Member Cries Out After Buhari Govt. budgets N1, 000 Daily Feeding Allowance For Prisoners, Corpers Get N650


The Corps member has complained that inmates in Nigerian Correctional Service facilities get better food allowances than corps members.

According to the statement released by Brigadier General Shuaibu Ibrahim, the Director- General of the NYSC disclosed during his appearance before the House Committee on Youth Development for a budget defense that corps members were served a lunch of N217.

He encouraged the House of Representatives to increase the feeding budget allocation in the scheme’ s budget for 2022.

Recall that on October 27, 2021, the Senate Committee on Interior increased the Nigerian Correctional Service’ s daily meal allocation from N450 per person to a minimum of N1, 000 per day.

Meanwhile, it was reported that the officials from National Civil Service were at the Senate to defend the Service’ s 2022 budget, which included a proposal to increase the daily feeding allowance to N750.


The committee, on the other hand, described the amount as terribly insufficient and inquired to boost it in line with the current economy after inmates eating costs were increased from N450 to N1000 per day.

Ibrahim, who claimed that this was his first time presenting the budget to the committee, alleged that the NYSC budget has remained the same for many years.

His statement reads: ” The only thing I’ ll say here is that sometime last year, I promised the NYSC committee, we’ re putting on our thinking cap. I don’ t want us to always go cap in hand begging for cash, so we need to do something to bring revenue to the table. This is something I did last year, and we ended up with about N280 million, which we put into the Federation Account.


” Our challenge is in the area of feeding, the approved budget for feeding per corps member is N650, which is insufficient. By dividing it by three meals (per day), you get N216 for each meal. As a result, we are pleading with this committee to assist us.

” Just recently, the Ministry of Interior increased the amount of food provided to inmates to N1, 000. So, if we can feed criminals for N1, 000, our graduates are sacrificing their lives for our country. I sincerely hope that this committee will take action. “
