January allowance for corps members to be delayed – NYSC

NYSC members

The National Youth Service Corps on Wednesday said there would be “a slight delay” in the payment of the January 2016 allowance for corps members.

“The delay is due to discrepancies in planning figures for 2016 from the NYSC, Ministry of Budget and National Planning and the Ministry of Finance.

“Management regrets this delay, and is therefore working round the clock to ensure that all corps members receive their January allowance between now and next week.

“Please accept our very sincere apology for this delay,” a statement sent to PREMIUM TIMES said.

    The news heading should have been “January allowance for corps members HAS BEEN delayed”. How could you say “IS TO BE DELAYED” when it is long overdue? Let NYSC resolve the issue quickly in order to alleviate the suffering of the corps members and lessen their vulnerability in these hard times.

    Scheme should be scrapped and let’s stop wasting people’s time. After 12 month of service, what happened to the 13th month. You fall back to your parent’s house and start roaming the street looking for jobs. Y. Not pay 250 to 300k after camp to enable the youths start something with before securing better job
