How much does NYSC pay Corps members in Nigeria?

The Federal Govt of Nigeria through NYSC pays N33,000 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 matter, the N33,000 FG pays to Corps members is not enough to sustain them throughout the month. Many Corps members usually go ‘stranded’ in the middle of the month without food and money. Therefore, paying them state allowance will be a kind of support, and it would go a long way to encourage them.

How much is the NYSC State allowance?

There is no fixed amount for this. Some states pay, while some do not pay, and some pay higher than others. Also states that pay may stop paying and states that don’t pay may start paying, especially when there is change in the government.
