  6. LAGOS: This state pays allowance to the first 100 lucky corpers to be registered; i.e ₦15,000 monthly to some lucky ones serving in public schools and ₦10,000 monthly to some lucky ones serving in the secretariat. To be eligible to be among the 100 lucky corpers, immediately you’re given your ppa letter, rush to Alausa Secretariat, at the ministry of special duties to have your number, cause it’s slot and it’s strictly on first to come, first to serve basis. You might be wondering why we didn’t say that Lagos state is the highest state, it’s because they don’t pay allowance to all the corps members deployed to their state, unlike Anambra state that pays everyone serving in public establishments.

  9. EBONYI: The state government paid NYSC corps members deployed to their state ₦9,757 from October 2018 – February 2019, but since then, they’ve never received a dime. Most people are saying that the all of sudden state allowance was politically motivated, because, the state governor stopped paying immediately he was re-elected for second term in office.

  10. ABUJA: The FCT does not pay corps members any allowance, even thou, it’s the capital of the country. But, it’s easier to earn money in Abuja, since there are lot’s of big companies that you can serve in and those big companies pay huge amount of allowances to the corps members serving there.

  11. KWARA, BAUCHI, KOGI, NIGER, KADUNA, EKITI, PLATEAU, RIVERS, BENUE, KANO, IMO, ONDO, OGUN, YOBE, CROSS RIVER, BORNO, ABIA, GOMBE and EDO do not pay anything to corps members deployed to their states.
