The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) on Monday refuted social media reports alleging it slashed corps members’ allowance by 25 per cent.
NYSC’s Director of Press, Bose Aderibigbe, said in Abuja the allowance of corps members remained N19,800, and not N14,800 as published by the social media.
Mrs. Aderibigbe said the Director-General of NYSC, Sule Kazaure, had not made any comments regarding allowances of corps members as claimed in the publication.
She reiterated the commitment of the scheme to the welfare of all corps members and urged corps members and the public to ignore what she called “the misleading information”. (NAN)
