NYSC: Why corps members are yet to receive June allowance
The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) on Sunday said banks are to blame for the delay in the payment of the corps members’ June allowance, adding that it has made all necessary preparations for the payment to take place as scheduled since June 27.
In response to protests over the delay, the NYSC’s Director of Press and Public Relations, Eddy Megwa, in a statement assured the public that the corps management is liaising with banks to process the payments.
“The Management of National Youth Service Corps wishes to state that it is aware of worries and agitations by corps members over the delay in the payment of their June 2023 monthly allowance.
“For the avoidance of doubt, the scheme completed all arrangements for the payment of corps members’ allowance since June 27, 2023, and remittances were made the same day to various banks accordingly.
The National Youth Service Corps said the delay in the payment of June allowance to corps members is from the banks, saying it has completed all arrangements for the payment since June 27.
“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.
He enjoined corp members 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”.
