One of the criteria of selecting NYSC state by prospective corp members during registration during registration is definitely the stipend paid by the state.

This situation often at times result in choosing or re-deploying massively to certain states that pays high, a typical example has to be Lagos state, Akwa Ibom and Previously Enugu.

But you sure have to know that selecting a particular state during registration does not guarantee the posting outcome as NYSC ca choose to post to any state of their choice.

Years back a greater number of state had been paying stipends to corp members serving in their state compared to what we are having now, much reason can’t really be attached as to why most of these states are not paying maybe the economic situation of the nation and in some situation just personal refusal of state governors to pay thinking it is irrelevant.

Several article have been written on this very topic which are far too misleading prompting us to come up with this. We put in our best of effort during this data collection and tried delivering the most accurate information to you.
