Management of the National Youth Service Corps, NYSC, has declared that online publications saying that NYSC members who lent their services to the conduct of the last presidential and National Assembly elections are to earn N53, 500 are only being ‘mischievous.’
The Corps Scheme stated that the statement originated from unscrupulous elements who sought to discourage corps members from participating in the gubernatorial elections due for April 11.
It also reiterated that corps members are entitled to an INEC-approved sum of N26, 000 per corps member, payable via the NYSC state secretariat.
“Training allowance of Four Thousand Five Hundred Naira (N4, 500.00) only paid directly by INEC to Corps members for the training held before elections.
“For each of the two elections, a Corps member is entitled to a sum of Thirteen Thousand Naira (N13,000.00) only which breaks down to N9,000.00, N3,000.00 and N1,000.00 for honoraria, transportation and feeding respectively,” it stated.
