Following the announcement of the N33,000 monthly allowance for the members of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), the members have been all over the social media jubilating after notifications from their banks of being credited with the said sum.
However, there are some who claimed to have not yet received their payment; a development that is typical of the payment of the Corps members allowance (popularly known as “allawee”). This does not mean they will not receive the payment; it is usually either their banks delay alerting them or payment of members in their states was delayed.
The news of the confirmation of the new allowance was welcomed with mixed reactions by the Corp members (“Corpers”).
– Big boys club –
Some of the Corps members sarcastically commented the new allowance has upgraded them to the big boys club.
A twitter user with the display name NYSC Boo commented: “When my 33k allawee enters….. Quillox all the way”
@ogunniyiolanre4 said “I am confused which one should I buy Benz or BMW.?. 33k is a goal.”
