In a bid to ensure Social Distancing among Corp members, the Management of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has said that payment of monthly allowance for the month of April shall be effected without the usual gathering for clearance.

In a statement signed by the NYSC Director, Press and Public Relations, Adenike Adeyemi who stated that the payment without clerance will also be extended to the month of May, 2020, noted that the system will generate automatic clearance for all corps members.

“It is important to note that payment of monthly stipend for the month of April shall be effected without the usual gathering for clerance, in keeping with the rule of social distancing.
“It is equally imperative to add that, there shall not be clearance for the month of May, 2020. Tbe system shall generate automatic clearance for month of May, 2020.”

Meanwhile, NYSC has decribed as false report claiming that the Director General of the scheme, Brigadier General Shuaibu Ibrahim in press release directed at Corps Members, that their monthly stipends for April and May would be contributed to the fight against COVID-19.

“The attention of the management of the National Youth Corps has been drawn to a fake news release, directed at Corps Members and purported to have been issued by the Director General, conveying to them that their monthly stipends for April and May would be contributed to the fight against Covid-19.

“It will be recalled that a similar mischievous story had earlier been bandied on the social media in February 2020.

“Management wishes to advise all Corps Members to disregard the poorly written story in its entirety, as there is no iota of truth in it. The story emanated from a fake source.” He added.

He however appreciated on behalf of the management Corps Members across the country for their contributions in the fight against the pandemic as well as Corps Medical Personnel working with medical teams across the country and Corps Engineers that fabricated pedal-operated machine dispensing sanitiser.
