NYSC blames banks for delayed June allowance of corps members
National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), yesterday, apportioned blame to banks for the delay in payment of the June allowance of serving members, adding that it had finalised arrangements for the imbursement since June 27.
In response to protests, Director of Press and Public Relations, Eddy Megwa, in a statement, assured the public that the management is liaising with the financial institutions to expedite payment.
His words: “The NYSC management wishes to state that it is aware of worries and agitations by corps members over the delay in payment of their June 2023 monthly allowance.
“For the avoidance of doubt, the scheme completed all arrangements for payment of corps members’ allowance since June 27, 2023, and remittances were made the 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.”
