‘Pardon us if you do not receive your September/Oct Allowance, its unfortunate’- NSS Head of Comm.
Earlier this afternoon, a publication was released stating clearly that the allowances for the September / October period had been diverted for a different purpose – paying newly recruited NABCO participants.
According to the National Service Secretariat Head of Communications, the allowances for the September period might not come as expected.
This declaration has begun raising questions in the minds of many young graduates who have enrolled in this year’s National Service Scheme and yet have not being paid.
The press release, which is being broadcasted through audio format stated..’ all affected immediate national service personnel is to remain patient and we urge them to co-operate with the staff of the Scheme. We had to take this timely decision to help our unemployed graduates’.
It will be recalled that the Payment of allowances to 2013/2014 National Service Personnel was suspended earlier that year to enable the Bureau of National Investigations (BNI) undertake a thorough review of the NSS payment process.
The National Service Secretariat will like to extend their apologies to affected personnel while they share their grievances and help make this year’s service a good one.
