NYSC Allowance For All States In Nigeria (Current)

The Federal Government of Nigeria, through the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) pays monthly stipend to every Nigerian graduate undergoing the one-year mandatory National Service program. Aside the Federal Government NYSC Allowance, which is currently N33,000, the State goverments also pay varying amount (state allowance) to NYSC members posted to various States. In this piece, we shall look into the NYSC allowance for all States in Nigeria.

However, the amount each State Government pays to Corpers differs. A crucial factor that determine choices of best states for NYSC is allowance, since no one would like to serve in a place where they literally receive no pay.

Some times it can be painful to meet your colleagues in other states being paid for the same work you do in another state without pay. Now, let’s walk you through the Corpers allowance for all states. You may like to check 10 best states to serve in Nigeria as a Corper.

How much does NYSC pays Corpers?

The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) pays N33,000 to every serving Corps Member regardless to where they are serving. Aside that, there are usually other compensations such as State allowance and PPA allowance.

Does it matter for State Govt to pay Corps members?

Yes, it does matter, the N33,000 stipend that FG pays 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 state allawee. Some states pay, while some don’t even pay, especially when there is change in the government.
