NYSC Allowances for All States in Nigeria

The NYSC is a compulsory scheme for all Nigerians who intend to utilize their tertiary education certificate after school. The only class of persons exempted from the scheme are those who are 30 years and above. So long you are below 30 at the time you graduated from school, know that you cannot skip it and doing so could spell trouble in the nearest future.

Note that this list is not ‘final authority’. Some states might have increased or reduced their NYSC state allowances. So here goes:

1.Abia state pay ₦5,000

2. Adamawa (i don’t know yet, help me if you do)
