The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has today on its official Facebook page denied the report of launching a portal for payment of N75,000 to ex-NYSC corps members.
Earlier this week, the news of the NYSC scheme launching a portal for ex corps members to register and get N75,000 stipend has been circulating, but the scheme has come out to say its all false.
In the Facebook post by the NYSC, the scheme stated that the information is false, and misleading, as they advised the general public to disregard the claims.
RE: NYSC DG LAUNCHES PORTAL FOR PAYMENT OF N75,000 TO EX-NYSC CORPS MEMBERS
The statement reads,
“The attention of the NYSC Management has been drawn to publications with the above caption by some online platforms.
The blogs, ‘Safe Job’ and ‘Vanguard News’, cited a purported passage of bill on payment of stipends to ex-Corps members by the Senate, and published information claiming that the NYSC Director-General had launched a portal for the payment of the said stipends.
A fake Facebook account, NYSC Online, has also been spreading the content published by the two blogs.
Management wishes to state that the information is not only false, but also misleading; and should, therefore, be disregarded.
We further wish to inform our esteemed stakeholders that the so-called “NYSC Online” is NOT the official Facebook page of the National Youth Service Corps“.
For the avoidance of doubt, authentic information from the NYSC Scheme can be accessed through our official Facebook page with the following link: www.facebook.com/officialnysc
