NYSC DG Clears Air On Donating Corps Members Allowances To Fight COVID-19


The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has assured corps members that their allowances will be paid without the usual gathering for clearance

The Director of Press and Public Relations in a statement issued on Saturday by Adenike Adeyemi, debunked the reports that the allowances for April and May would be contributed to the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic in the country.

She quoted Shuaibu Ibrahim, the NYSC director-general, as assuring corps members that their allowances were intact.

the statement reads;

“It is important to note that payment of monthly stipend for the month of April shall be effected without the usual gathering for clearance, in keeping with the rule of social distancing,” 

“It is equally imperative to add that there shall not be clearance for the month of May, 2020. The system shall generate automatic clearance for everyone.”

She also commended the efforts by corps members across the country, especially health workers who are at the frontline, to control the spread of the virus.

“Special commendation once again goes to Corps Medical Personnel working tirelessly with medical teams across the country to save lives; and Corps Engineers that fabricated pedal-operated machine dispensing sanitiser, water and soap,” the statement read.

“The various Skill Acquisition and Entrepreneurship Development (SAED) groups, working day and night to produce face masks, sanitisers and liquid soap, donated to the Federal and State Governments, in addition to communities, in order to contain the spread of the virus are not left out of the commendation.

“Management remains very proud of you. In the same vein, you are urged to sustain and deepen this fervour for national development, even after we have won the battle against COVID-19.

“Rest assured, the welfare of Corps Members shall continue to be given top priority by Management at all times.”
