The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has explained the reason behind the delay in the payment of June 2023 monthly allowance to serving corps members.
The NYSC management in a statement on Sunday by the Director, Press and Public Relations, Eddy Megwa said the delay is due to the administration of funds by various banks who are yet to credit Corps Members’ accounts.
The NYSC management added that it is aware of and working with the banks to facilitate the payment of the monthly allowance to corps members.
In the meantime, it appealed for calm from the corps members, urging them to remain dutiful and law-abiding.
