In an oficial statement released on its Facebook page on Monday, the management of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has denied reducing the monthly allowance of corp members.
The Cable News reported that the NYSC management described the “information circulating in the social media to the effect that corps members’ allowance has been slashed by 25%” as mischievous.
NYSC noted that monthly allowance remains N19,800 and not N14,800 as is being erroneously circulated.
“In the first instance, the document quoted a “Brigadier General Bamidele Oluwami” the purported NYSC Director General as the source of its information.
“The scheme vehemently dissociates itself from this wicked falsehood meant to create confusion in the polity. 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.
“Management hereby categorically state that corps members allowance remains N19,800 and not reduced to N14,800 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”, the scheme said.
