NYSC denies cutting corps members’ allowances
The National Youth Service Corps has described as mischievous information circulating on social media that corps members’ allowances have been slashed by 25%.
“The scheme vehemently dissociates itself from this wicked falsehood meant to create confusion in the polity,” said NYSC In a statement on Monday.
“The Director-General of the NYSC is Brigadier General SZ Kazaure and he never made any comment as claimed by the brains behind the damaging publication.
NYSC explained that corps members allowance remains N19800 and not reduced to N14800 as wickedly portrayed by the social media release.
“For the avoidance of doubts, we unequivocally restate our unalloyed commitment to the welfare of all corps members at all times.
“Corps members and the public should, therefore, ignore this misleading information and go about their duties lawfully without fear.
