NYSC Allawee for all States in Nigeria (Current)

NYSC state Allawee/Allowances for different states in Nigeria.


We wrote earlier on the best states to serve as a youth corper in Nigeria. This time,  we shall list the NYSC allowance or state allawee paid by the different states in Nigeria.

NYSC is a compulsory one year service to Nigeria. One is required as a graduate of any recognised university in Nigeria to serve his or her nation. Before prospective corp members gets their call-up letters for service, they would like to know how much states would pay to Youth corpers serving in the state.

The truth of the matter concerning NYSC allowance is that most states that are considered unsafe for Youth corpers hardly pay state allowance, while the states considered best states for serving as NYSC corp members pay corpers from N5000 naira to N15k depending on the place of posting.

There was a rumour that the Federal Government wanted to increase the Youth Corpers allawance to a new salary of N36, 000, but it was debunked by the former Director General of the National Youth Service Corp.

Aside from the federal government normal allowee for youth corpers which is N19, 800, there are other ways to make money as a youth corper easily which we covered extensively here.
