The National Youth Service Corps on Monday denied social media reports alleging its plan to slash NYSC monthly allowance by 25 per cent.
NYSC’s Director of Press, Bose Aderibigbe, said in Abuja the allowance of corps members remained N19,800, and not N14,800 as being speculated in the media.
News Agency of Nigeria, NAN, quoted Mrs. Aderibigbe as saying, “The Director-General of NYSC, Sule Kazaure, has not made any comments regarding allowances of corps members as claimed in the publication.”
She reiterated the commitment of the scheme to the welfare of all corps members and urged corps members and the public to ignore what she called “the misleading information”.
