List of States that pay NYSC members extra money.
The federal government of Nigeria, through the National Youths Service Corps pays a monthly fee to all Corps Members all through their one year service period.
This monthly fee that is paid to the NYSC members is often referred to as Allowee.
Currently, the government is reportedly paying a sum of Thirty Three Thousand Naira only N33,000 to each member.
Most Corps Members, especially those who don’t have good financial background or backup, rely on this money for feeding, clothing, shelter and other basic necessities. Some even manage it to a point that they deny themselves certain things like pleasures etc, so as to have little savings upon completion of service.
