This was made known on Friday through a statement by the scheme’s Director of Public Relations, Mrs. Abosede Aderibigbe.
According to her, the delay in settling outstanding Corps members’ personal allowances was as a result of technical problems with the payment platform.
While assuring the Corps members that service providers are working round the clock to restore connectivity so as to allow seamless crediting of their accounts, Mrs. Aderibigbe said they should expect full payment in a couple of days.
The statement reads: “The Management of the National Youth Service Corps regrets the delay being experienced in the payment of personal allowance to Corps members.
