NYSC Says Allowance Increase From 19k To N48,900 Is A Rumour

The management of the National Youth Service Corps has reacted to the unconfirmed reports about corps members allowance increase.

On Monday, August 6, 2018,  a twitter handle, APC Newspaper, which claims to be a social media mouthpiece for the ruling party, All Progressive Congress announced that President Muhammdu Buhari has raised NYSC allowance to N49,800.

APC Newspaper says Buhari raises Corps members allowance to N49, 800.

This writer, however, tweeted at NYSC to confirm the credibility of the APC Newspaper’s tweet about the allowance increase and @officialnysc replied saying it is a rumour.

Shortly after responding to the tweet asking the agency to clear the air on the rumour @officialnysc immediately deleted the tweet.

An NYSC official who prefers to be anonymous however said he is not in the best position to confirm the increase in corps member allowance.
