Director General of NYSC Says He is Ready for Immediate Payment of 33k Allawee

After a series of back and forth, today, January 29, 2020, the Director-General of NYSC, Brigadier General Shuaibu Ibrahim said the corp members will receive the sum of N33, 000 as their new "allawee" from this year.

According to the general, the amount has been covered in the 2020 budget which was passed into law in December 2019.

Brigadier General Ibrahim who stated this while speaking at his recent visit to Bauchi said the upward review of the stipend is in line with the new minimum wage approved by President Muhammadu Buhari in 2019.

A report of the Nigeria Television Authority (NTA) quoted the Brigadier General as saying that the National Youth Service was ready for the immediate payment of the new monthly allowance once funds are released by the appropriate authorities.

In reaction to the report, @IbadanPikin tweeted: "So it is because of ordinary 33,000 that NYSC is delaying alawee like this?"

While @lizzylawrence23 tweeted: "If after all this delay I still see alert of 19800, Nysc will hear from my lawyers". And so the anticipation for the newly approved stipend continues.
