How much does NYSC pays Corpers?

The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) pays N33,000 to every serving Corps Member regardless to where they are
serving. Aside that, there are usually other compensations such as State allowance and PPA allowance.

Does it matter for State Govt to pay Corps members?

Yes, it does matter, the N33,000 stipend that FG pays Corps members is not enough to sustain them throughout the month. Many Corps members usually go ‘stranded’ in the middle of the month without food and money. Therefore, paying them state allowance will be a kind of support, and it would go a long way to encourage them.

How much is the NYSC State allowance?

There is no fixed amount for state allowance. Some states pay, while some don’t even pay, especially when there is
change in the government.
