Kazaure gave the hint over the weekend in Bayelsa state, while addressing 1,595 Corps Members comprising 852 males and 743 Females, deployed for 2018 Batch “B” Orientation Course.
According to the D.G, the Federal Government has concluded plans to review upward the N19,500 montly allowance accrued to each corps member, as well as provide very tight security for members of the corps who would be serving as ad-hoc staff during the 2019 general elections.
While urging them to be worthy visitors in any community they find themselves, Kazaure said they should not leave their host communities at the end of their service year without adding value to them.
“Don’t leave your host communities at the end of the service year without adding value to them. Try and leave good legacies and also remember to add value to yourselves as you continue your service year”, he stressed.
