We recently published a post on all you need to know concerning NYSC orientation camp. In this post, we shall expose the best states for National Youth Service in Nigeria and the highest paying states for NYSC.
As we are aware that the NYSC 2021 Batch A posting would soon commence. Most prospective corp members and graduates would be surfing the internet on the three states to chose as their best states for National Youth Service.
To answer the question – What are the best states for National Youth Service in Nigeria?, we used the following factors to create a formidable list:
- States that pay the highest allowance (allawee)
Most graduates would opt for big cities while some would want rural areas. Either ways, the choice is yours. Also note that the current federal allowance (allawee) paid to NYSC corp members is now N33, 000.
During my experience as a Corper, medical students are posted to hospitals and they are usually paid more than other corp members.
