NYSC State By State Allowance differs. Some states pay higher than the others. For prospective Youth Corps members, the knowledge of this will help you prepare yourself financially so you can know what and what to expect from the state you are sent to serve. There is also no fixed rule as to why each state differs in the payments. But, it is not rocket science to say that each state operates according to her economic capacity.
The NYSC State By State Allowance is a collation of the states’ allowance to corps members serving within the state across the federation. This is different from the Allawii. The allawii is simply the name given the N19, 800 which the federal government pays every serving Youth Corps members in Nigeria. The different states therefore have the payment they give to the Corpers in their states. That is our concern.
