Her people are hospitable and you are safe in any part of it,” He further assured that the state stipends of the corps members would be paid promptly, adding “I want to assure you that your stay here will be most rewarding and memorable”.
A corps member, Ms Chinyere Okafor, expressed her delight at her deployment to Enugu, but said the stipend paid by the state government needed an upward review. Okafor said that the state government needed to consider the high cost of living including the high cost of accommodation and transportation in the city centres.
Corps members serving in the state capital are paid a monthly stipend of N1,000 while those in rural areas receive N4,000 as against the flat rate of N10,000 paid by the last administration.
Mr Ibrahim Abubakar also said he had longed to experience the scheme and had enjoyed his stay in the orientation camp.
