Why we have not paid NYSC members October allowance – Management

The management of the National Youth Service Corps has given a reason for the non-payment of the October allowance of corps members nationwide.

The management also apologised to Corps members over the delay in the payment.

The NYSC stated these in a statement on its official Facebook page on Friday.

“The Management of the National Youth Service Corps regrets the delay being experienced in the payment of personal allowance to Corps members.

“Management wishes to inform Corps members and the rest of the public that funds have since been released by the Federal Government, but the delay is as a result of technical problems with the payment platform.”

The NYSC said the problem will be resolved in a couple of days.

“Service providers are working round the clock to restore connectivity so as to allow seamless crediting of Corps members’ accounts. We are confident that this will be achieved in a couple of days.”

“Management appreciates the patience shown by Corps members in the face of this unforeseen challenge, and appeals for more understanding as we are working assiduously with the relevant agencies to address the problem.

“Payment of Corps members’ allowance is a top priority for the Federal Government and the NYSC Scheme, and wish to restate our commitment to the welfare of the youth on national service at all times.”

    You have not paid the suffering corpers because you have withheld the money to gain large scale FDI interests on them. You are the same thieves that compelled this corpers to open new bank account so when you receive from FG which we know is via credit what prevents you from immediately crediting the respective banks holding the corper account for immediate transfer to them. Shame on you NYSC, you are making a good case for your scrapping soon.

      I tire ooooo even the 19,800 is not enough to survive with the way the economy is yet the government and all other officials in power are embezzling Nigeria money here and there they have never thought of increasing the salary the sad thing is most of us haven’t received September allowance too they don’t care how we survive and yet they tell us to be good citizen of an half destroyed country full of fraud and self centeredness no future for the youths

        I feel your pain my dear, 19800 is an insult on folks who have spent years pursuing 4 – 6 year courses. To make matters worse they withhold the money sometimes conniving with banks to yield interests on the delayed funds.

        I suggest you go to the office of the NYSC State Coordinator to formally complain about your September allowance.
