The NYSC wishes to clarify the general public on issues of rumour connected to increment of corp members allowances. It should be noted that:

1. NYSC is indeed aware of the initial proposed bill submitted for the increment of corp members allowances but up till now, no formal information regarding the approval has been received by the NYSC.

2. The NYSC is not a political agency and so, any source of increment from a political stand point remains only a political strategy and is completely and totally ignored by the commission until due process proceedings are initiated.

3. Rumours linking the national head count conducted between the 22nd and 23rd of August, 2015 to the increment of corp members allowances have also been received by the commission. On regard to this, it is to the best interest of all involved to know that such connection is non-existent. The reason behind the national head count remains CONFIDENTIAL to the NYSC and may be disclosed if deemed necessary to and at proper time.

The NYSC hereby affirms that as at today, all rumours concerning the increment of corp members allowances remains FALSIFIED
