The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) on Wednesday, February 3, stated that corps members would experience “a slight delay” in the payment of their January 2016 allowance, as it also tendered an apology to the effect.
This announcement was made known in a statement issued by the management of the scheme in regard to the discrepancies in planning figures for 2016 from the NYSC, Ministry of Budget and National Planning, the Ministry of Finance.
The statement read: “The delay is due to discrepancies in planning figures for 2016 from the NYSC, Ministry of Budget and National Planning and the Ministry of Finance.
“Management regrets this delay, and is therefore working round the clock to ensure that all corps members receive their January allowance between now and next week.
“Please accept our very sincere apology for this delay.”
This is coming a week after the NYSC declared that the participation in the national service and attendance of Law School at the same time “would not be acceptable”.
