NYSC Nigeria Allowance 2021

This post will enlighten you on the amount of money corps members in the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) receives has State allowances for the 36 States in Nigeria and the FCT.

At the moment, the bill to pay corpers N30, 000 has been signed but yet to be implemented which we believe is good news to the corps member as the result of the increment in the national minimum wage.

However, The Federal Government still pays NYSC members the sum of N33,000 (Thirty-Three ThousandNaira) monthly allowance.

As most of you know already. Corp members have other sources of payment from their place of primary assignment (PPA) – depending on their course of study and location.

For instance, a corp member who is a medical doctor in a teaching hospital may get up to N150-200 per month along with the N33,000 Federal Allowance. Pretty good money.

Same with a corp members who are engineers working for the likes of Agip, Mobil or Chevron. Their monthly pay cannot be the same with a corp member who is a classroom teacher in one remote village like that.

  1. This is nice even though we don’t serve for the token but for the harmonization of our dear country.
    However, I suggest that Corp members be given a good job after service.
    By so doing, the Youths would be relieved of depression after service.
    Thanks.
