NYSC speaks on delay in payment of corps members’ June allowance

The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has blamed banks for the delay in the payment of June allowance to corps members, claiming that it has completed all arrangements for the payment since June 27.

NYSC Director, Press and Public Relations, Eddy Megwa, made this clarification in a statement released on Sunday in response to agitations over the delay.

He assured that the corps management is interfacing with the banks to fast-track payment.

Megwa said: “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 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.”

Called on 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”.
