Federal Government to payment NYSC members delayed allowance on Friday

Minister of Youth Development, Mr. Bolaji Abdullahi
, assured corps members across the country that their delayed allowances would be paid latest on Friday.
Abdullahi gave the assurance after an outcry by corps members over the delay in the payment of their allowances.
He told State House correspondents that he had extracted a commitment from theDirector-General of the National Youth Service Corps (NYC), Brigadier-General Nnamdi Okore-Afia, that the delayed allowances would be paid by Friday.

The minister also blamed the NYSC authorities for failing to explain the cause of the delay to the corps members.
He said, "The problem is that at the point that the allowances are being delayed, the NYSC ought to have come out to explain to the corps members why the allowances will be delayed."

He explained that the delay in payments of allowances to corps members was due to the transition to a new accounting system.
In a statement by his Special Assistant on Media, Mr. Julius Ogunro, on Tuesday, Abdullahi saidthe delay was not unique to corps members alone adding that some civil servants in the employ of the Federal Government were also affected by the development.
Abdullahi said, "The delay in the payment of corps members allowance for the month of April is not deliberate.
