The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) Management claims to be aware of the concerns of corps members over the delay in the payment of their monthly allowance for June 2023.
The Scheme blamed “administration of funds by various banks” for the delay in the payment of the June stipend.
Eddy Megwa, the NYSC’s Director of Press and Public Relations, stated in a statement on Sunday that the Scheme has finalized plans to pay corps members their June allowance on June 27, 2023.
“For the avoidance of doubt, the Scheme completed all arrangements for the payment of Corps Members’ allowance since 27th of June, 2023, and remittances made same day to various banks accordingly,” the statement partly read.
“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.”
The NYSC spokesperson urged corps members to remain calm and law-abiding in their respective places of national service as the Scheme will continue to treat issues relating to their welfare with utmost priority.
