The National Youth Service Corps, NYSC, Wednesday said challenges arising from failed bank transaction and the inability of the settlement centre to immediately reprocess for payment, caused the delay in the payment of corps members’ allowance.
Corps members last week grumbled over the delay in the payment of their September and October allowance as well as transport allowance by some of the recently discharged 2014 Batch ‘C’ Corps Members.
Reacting to the complaints, the NYSC in a statement issued Wednesday in Abuja, said the scheme forwarded the payment schedule at the right time.
They blamed the banking system for the delay in the crediting of the accounts of the affected corps members.
“While Management regrets any inconveniences caused by the delay in the ability of the affected Corps Members to access their allowances in their Banks, we wish to assure them that we are currently rectifying identified problems and the accounts of affected Corps members are being credited with the allowances accordingly”, the statement said.
