The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has blamed commercial banks over the nonpayment of the June 2023 allowance of corps members across the federation.
The management urged the corps members to maintain composure and civility in a statement that Eddy Megwa, the Scheme’s Director of Press and Public Relations, signed on Sunday.
The management, however, apologized to corps members over the delay in the payment, saying that it was aware of their worries and agitations over the delay in the payment of their allowance.
“For the avoidance of doubt, the scheme has completed all arrangements for the payment of Corps Members’ allowance since June 27, 2023, and remittances have been made the same day to various banks accordingly.
“The delay currently experienced is due to the administration of funds by various banks that have yet to credit Corps Members’ accounts.
“In line with the above, NYSC Management is assiduously interfacing with the banks to fast-track the payment of Corps Members’ June allowance without further delay.
“All Corps Members are enjoined to remain calm, law-abiding, and dutiful in their respective places of national service as the Scheme will continue to treat issues relating to their welfare with the utmost priority,” the statement read.
