The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has given a reason for the non-payment of the June 2023 allowance of corps members across the country.
The management also apologised to corp members over the delay in the payment, saying that it is aware of their worries and agitations over the delay in the payment of their allowance.
The NYSC stated this in a statement, signed by Eddy Megwa, the Director, Press and Public Relations of the Scheme.
“For the avoidance of doubt, the Scheme completed all arrangements for the payment of Corps Members’ allowance since 27th of June, 2023, and remittances made 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.
“All Corps Members are enjoined 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,” the statement added.
