The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has provided an explanation for why allowances due to corps members nationwide in June 2023 has not be paid.
The management expressed regret to the corp members for the payment delay and acknowledged their concerns and agitation over the issue.
This was declared by the NYSC in a statement that was signed by Eddy Megwa, the Scheme’s Director of Press and Public Relations.
“For the avoidance of doubt, the Scheme completed all arrangements for the payment of Corps Members’ allowance since 27th of June, 2023, and remittances made same day to various banks accordingly.
“The delay being currently experienced is due to the administration of funds by various banks who are yet to credit Corps Members’ accounts.
“In line with the above, NYSC Management is assiduously interfacing with the banks to fast track the payment of Corps Members’ June allowance without further delay.
“All Corps Members are enjoined to remain calm, law-abiding and dutiful in their respective places of national service as the Scheme will continue to treat issues relating to their welfare with utmost priority,” the statement added.
