The amount state government pay Corps members is a factor that influence Corpers choices of states during online registration.

Of course, no one would like to serve in a place where they will not be paid.

Most often, you will see corps members ranting on social media because they are not being paid state allowance.

Without mincing words, however, nobody would like to serve in a state where they will not be paid for their efforts. And it is painful to hear that your colleagues in other states are being paid for thesame work you do without pay.

After reading this article, you will have a clear picture of how much ‘Corpers’ are being paid across Nigeria.

Just before that, let’s look at some important questions people usually ask concerning the NYSC allowance.

How much does NYSC pay Corps members?

The Federal Govt of Nigeria through NYSC pays N19,800 to every Corps Member regardless to where they are serving. Aside that, there may be other compensations which has nothing to do with NYSC. Such compensations include, state allowance, PPA allowance, and so on.

Does it matter for state Govt to pay Corps members?

Yes, it does matters. We all know that the N19,800 the Federal Govt pays to Corps members is not enough.

Corps members are usually stranded in the middle of the month without food nor money.

Therefore paying them state allowance will be a kind of support, and it will go a very long way to encourage and also reduce unnecessary travelling.

  1. Oyo is now paying sum of #5,000

  2. I thought they said the new allowee will be 30,000 naira, or is it not true?

  3. What up Adamawa state

  4. I’m serving in Bayelsa currently, during the end of our orientation in camp, the state governor promised, through his representative that the state allowance will be double.
    Hoping to see it double soon.

  5. Borno state are pay only those serving under state. An review has to be taking because those serving under federal government are not part of the allowance.we always end up with only 19800 while others are earn 29,800.
