SEE What Caused The Delay In Corps Members’ Allowance

The management of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has explained what caused the delay in the payment of corps members’ allowance.

The Nation reports that the NYSC named reasons for the delay in a statement made on Wednesday, October 28, in Abuja.

According to the NYSC management, challenges arising from failed bank transaction and the inability of the settlement centre to immediately reprocess for payment caused the delay.

Last week, corps members complained over the delay in the payment of their September and October allowance as well as transport allowance by some of the recently discharged 2014 Batch ‘C’ Corps Members.

“While management regrets any inconveniences caused by the delay in the ability of the affected corps members to access their allowances in their banks, we wish to assure them that we are currently rectifying identified problems and the accounts of affected corps members are being credited with the allowances accordingly,” the statement said.

Meanwhile, the NYSC has recently advised corps members to tweet live events in their various camps. They were also advised to promote co-existence and peace among  fellow corps members during their stay in camp and after.
