The National Youth Service Corps has attributed the delay in the payment of June allowances to corps members to the banks. According to the corps, all necessary preparations for the payment were concluded on June 27. In response to concerns raised about the delay, Eddy Megwa, the Director of Press and Public Relations at NYSC, issued a statement on Sunday assuring that the corps management is actively engaging with the banks to expedite the payment process.
He 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.”
He enjoined 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”.
