The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) on Monday refuted social media reports alleging it has slashed corps members’ allowance by 25 per cent.
NYSC’s Director of Press, Mrs Bose Aderibigbe, said in a statement made available to news men on Monday in Abuja, copy of which was obtained by Blackface News that the allowance of corps members remained N19,800, and not N14,800 as published by the social media.
Aderibigbe said the Director-General of NYSC, Brig.-Gen. Sule Kazaure, had not made any comments regarding allowances of corps members as claimed in the publication.
She reiterated the commitment of the scheme to the welfare of all corps members and urged corps members and the public to ignore what she called `the misleading information’.
