Some few days ago, we were all jubilating that the Federal Government had plan to increase corps members’ monthly allowance, (read the full story here-> Federal Government Plan to Increase NYSC Allowance to N38,000) the Director General of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) Brigadier General Nnamdi Okore Affia yesterday said there is no plan by FG to increase corps members’ monthly allowance.(

While Addressing the 2013 Batch A corps members deployed to Katsina State, General Affia said and i quote;

“to be honest with you there is no plan to increase your monthly allowance; all you have heard is nothing but pure rumours.”
“If there is such plan I must be the first person to know but as far as I am concerned there is no official plan to increase your allowance; even if the plan is on the pipeline, it has not reach my level. Your monthly allowance is still remain N19,800,”

He implore the corps members to respect the religion and culture of their host community, saying “you should understand very well the dos and don’ts of your host community.” Earlier, Katsina director of NYSC Mr E O Afolalu said a total of 1,917 corps members have been registered in Katsina as 2013 Batch A.

We were also informed that the NYSC service year has been increased to two years. Is this also rumour? You can read the full story here- NYSC Service Increased to 2 years?

For the Corp members who want to know their monthly allowance, here you have it raw from the main source.
The NYSC Monthly Allowance is N19,800 (Nineteen thousand and eight hundred naira) as at March, 2013.
We hope they increase it, who can survive with N19,800?
