The Federal Government has denied plans to suspend April and May 2020 allowance of Management of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) over the Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.
The Management in a Press release that was published on “NYSC Official Forum” on Saturday stated that there is no iota of truth in the misleading clams on social media.
According to the release titled: Re: NYSC suspends allowance for the months of April and May for all Corps members on, the agency said that there are no plans by the Director- General of NYSC, Major-General Shuaibu Ibrahim, to covert the allowance towards the treatment of the infectious disease.
“It is important to note that payment of monthly stipend for the month of April shall be effected without the usual gathering for Clearance, in keeping with the rule of social distancing.
The NYSC also stated that there shall not be Clearance for the month of May, 2020. The system shall generate automatic clearance for everyone.
“As the battle against Coronavirus rages in the country and the globe, you are enjoined to continue making your safety top priority.
“Always stay tuned to our traditional and new media platforms for genuine information.
“Please, remember to always abide by the safety protocols of observing good hygiene, which includes among others — proper washing of hands with soap and water for at least forty seconds, use of hand sanitiser; social distancing; and as much as possible staying at home.
“The battle against COVID–19 shall be won, if we all stay focused and approach it with a single mind”, the agency said.
