NYSC Allowance. How much is NYSC Members paid in the new administration? How does federal government nigeria want to start paying nysc members? How much is nysc allowance now ? These are an important question to ask.
It might interest you to know that NYSC as an abbreviation or National Youth Service Corp at an expression did not appear in any paragraph in the manifestos in the immediate past electioneering campaign.
Although, there are rumors lingering around concerning the increment of NYSC allowance when the new government took over office.
According to our personal findings, there’s nothing like any increment in the NYSC monthly allowance. At the time of writing this post, NYSC members still receives the sum of N19,800 (Nineteen Thousand Eight Hundred Naira) from the Federal Government.
Although, there may be serious plans to increase this amount, for now that is the amount. We will publish the information here if there is any increase.
Corp members still managed this meeker pay despite changes in prices of good and services across the country.
This is a very complex question and it does not have a clear answer. Apart from the federal allowance of N19,800, many corp members may get other forms of payment from their place of primary assignment – depending on their course of study, ppa and location.
For instance, a corp member who is a medical doctor in a teaching hospital may receive nothing less than N150-200 per month along with the N19,800 Federal Allowance.
Same with a corp member who is an engineer working in Agip, Mobil or Chevron. They monthly pay cannot be the same with a corp member who is a classroom teacher in one remote village like that.
It’s obvious that some States in Nigeria pays better than others, while some do not even pay a dime. States like Akwa Ibom pays the highest (N10,000 per month), followed by Lagos, Enugu, Oyo and Sokoto State.
