Over the weekend, the Director General of the NYSC, Brig Gen. Olawumi Johnson expressed concerns on the delay of payment of corps members’ INEC election duty allowance.
On Saturday, he requested all corps members that participated in the elections to exercise patience, that everyone will be paid. The Official twitter account, @NYSC_NG tweeted that the DG “has been very concerned about this. Nobody will rob you of your entitlements.”
The approved allowance for corps members participation in each of the elections has been broken down:
- Honorarium – ₦9,000 per election
- Transportation -₦3,000 per election
- Feeding allowance -₦1,000 per election
Also if you participated in the March 28 elections but you’re yet to receive your allowance IN FULL, the DG has requested such persons to tweet send their details to @NYSC_NG. That is , your Name, State code and phone number. Also, do mention the amount you’ve received.
