The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) management has come out to give an explanation as to what caused the delay in the payment of corps members’ allowance.
The reasons for the delay were released in a statement that was circulated on Wednesday, October 28, 2015 in Abuja.
According to the NYSC management, challenges arising from unsuccessful bank transaction and the inability of the settlement center to quickly reprocess for payment brought about the delay.
Last week, corps members grumbled over the delay in paying their September and October allowances as well as some of the recently discharged 2014 Batch ‘C’ Corps members transport allowance.
The statement reads, “While management regrets any inconveniences caused by the delay in the ability of the affected corps members to access their allowances in their banks, we wish to assure them that we are currently rectifying identified problems and the accounts of affected corps members are being credited with the allowances accordingly.”
The NYSC Management has also recently urged corps members to tweet live events in their various camps and promote co-existence and peace among fellow corps members during and after their stay in camp.
