NYSC denies slashing allowance by 25%

The Management of the National Youth Service Corps, NYSC, has distanced itself from a Facebook post on it’s page that revealed that the allowance of Corps members has been slashed by 25 per cent.

According to the body, those behind the story quoted a certain “Brigadier General Bamidele Oluwami” the purported NYSC Director General as the source of the information, which is false.

 “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 N19800 and not reduced to N14800 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.”
