“January Allowance For Corps Members To Be Delayed”- NYSC Gives Reason



The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) says there will be “a slight delay” in the payment of allowance for January, 2016 and its management has sent out a message of apology to this effect.

In a press statement issued out on Wednesday, February 3, the NYSC management explained that the delay of January allowance was due to disparities in logistics and planning details for 2016 from the Ministry of Budget and National Planning, the Ministry of Finance as well as the NYSC itself.

In this light, there have been continuous efforts to ensure the situation is addressed in order to facilitate the payment of January allowance to all corps members.

The NYSC said: “Management regrets this delay, and is therefore working round the clock to ensure that all corps members receive their January allowance between now and next week. Please accept our very sincere apology for this delay.”

In a recent development, the NYSC ordered its staff to declare their assets.
This is in keeping with the ongoing fight against corruption in the nation.

The Director-General of the NYSC, Johnson Olawunmi, ordered the personnel of the scheme to declare their assets in line with the code of conduct for public officers.

The corps boss gave the directive at the opening ceremony of its 2016 Annual Management Conference in Asaba.

He explained that the NYSC management had been very consistent in the enforcement of periodic assets declaration by members of staff as well as ensuring strict adherence to policy guidelines in all aspects of the scheme’s operations.

He said: “ I therefore wish to commend the political class, security agencies, and the electorate for their support to corps members during the exercise. We assure all Nigerians that given such opportunity in the future, we will not disappoint the nation.”
