The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has explained why corps members are yet to receive their June allowances after the month ended.
During the 12 months, serving corps members are entitled to a monthly allowance of N33,000,
However, they yet to receive their June allowances.
The NYSC’s Director, Press and Public Relations, Eddy Megwa, in a statement, blamed the development on the various banks used by the corp members.
According to Mr Megwa, the management of the NYSC remitted the corps members’ allowances to the banks a few days before the end of the month.
“For the avoidance of doubt, the Scheme completed all arrangements for the payment of corps members’ allowance since the 27th of June, and remittances made the same day to various banks accordingly. The delay currently experienced is due to the administration of funds by various banks who are yet to credit corps members’ accounts.”
Mr Megwa, however, stated that the management is already interfacing with the banks to ensure speedy processing of the allowances.
“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.
He also urged corps members to remain calm and be law-abiding and dutiful in their respective places of national service, saying, “the scheme will continue to treat issues relating to their welfare with utmost priority.”
