The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has promised to pay the allowances for March and April despite lockdown order in order to curtail the spread of Coronavirus.
Director-General, Brigadier-General Shuaibu Ibrahim, in a statement by the Director of Public Affairs, Mrs. Adenike Adeyemi appealed to corps members to remain calm as the allowances will be paid soon.
Adeyemi said that the absence of monthly clearance exercise will not hinder the payment of allowances.
“As we earnestly look up to the Almighty God for help, management wishes to reassure all corps members once more that allowances for the months of March and April shall be paid to everyone, without recourse to the monthly clearance exercise.
“You are all enjoined to stay calm, stay safe, observe safety precautions given from time to time by the National Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) and always stay tuned to our traditional and new media platforms,” he said.
As of Tuesday, Nigeria recorded 117 new cases of Coronavirus.
This brings the total number of cases in the country to 782.
