The Management of National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has affirmed that all serving Corps Members nationwide will receive the April 2020 allowance even without doing their monthly clearance because of the lockdown due to the ravaging coronavirus in Nigeria.
This was disclosed by the Corps Director of Public Affairs, Mrs. Adenike Adeyemi.
She said: “As we earnestly look up to the Almighty God for help, management wishes to reassure all corps members once more that allowances for the months of March and April shall be paid to everyone, without recourse to the monthly clearance exercise.
“You are all enjoined to stay calm, stay safe, observe safety precautions given from time to time by the National Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) and always stay tuned to our traditional and news media platforms.
“You are enjoined to recommit yourselves to the ideals of the scheme even as you put the country’s interest at the frontline.
“Keep on rendering your selfless service to Nigeria and humanity, you should also keep on working on your personal development and emancipation from the clutches of tribalism and corruption, because these are the twin vices that we must defeat.
At the time of filing this report, weekly CDS and monthly biometric verification stays suspended.
