Zulum releases N148.8m to offsets corp members allowance

By Hamza Suleiman

Gov. Babagana Zulum of Borno has approved the payment of N148.8 million to offset the backlogs of arrears and monthly allowances of various batches of serving and past corps members in the state.

The Desk Officer of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) in the state, Mr. Christopher Godwin-Akaba, made this known in an a statement in Maiduguri on Thursday

Godwin-Akaba said that the breakdown of the allowance include; six months outstanding arrears for 2019 Batch A Corps members totaling N38.8 million, nine months outstanding arrears of 2019 Batch B Stream I Corps members totaling N41 million.

He said that part of the money would be used to offsets June and July 2020 allowances of 2019 Batch B Stream II Corps members.

He explained that a total of N24.3 million was also approved for the payment of serving Corps members for 2019 Batch C Stream I and II up to July, 2020,” he said.

He recalled that with this latest approval, the total payments so far made by the state government to serving Corps members in the state stood at N351.5 million.

He said: “At the moment, no Corps member both outgone and serving is being owned any state allowances, which has now been fully cleared up to the month of July, 2020.

“Also effective from August 1st 2020, Gov. Zulum has approved the downward review of non-medical Corps members allowances serving with MDAs in the state to N5,000 monthly,” he said.

According to him, the decision is necessitated by the current financial situation coupled with the competing demands on the state’s resources.

He noted that the downward review did not affect medical corps doctors and paramedics.

He, therefore, urged the benefitting category of Corps members to be patient as they will soon start receiving their payment.(NAN)
