If you are an NYSC corper posted to Lagos State for your service year, then this article is for you. So you probably wondering how much does Lagos State Pay NYSC Corpers. Well, there is a little twist to this. All that is to know about Lagos State allowance has been fully highlighted below.

NYSC is a compulsory one year service to Nigeria. One is required as a graduate of any recognised university in Nigeria to serve his or her nation. Before prospective corp members get their call-up letters for service, they would like to know how much states would pay to Youth corpers serving in the state.

How Much Does Lagos State Pay NYSC Corpers in Nigeria

Lagos state likes doing things differently, standing out and making waves. Lagos state has a policy unlike other states in Nigeria.

This state pays this allowance to the first 100 lucky corpers to be registered for the NYSC scheme; i.e ₦15,000 monthly to some lucky ones who are serving in public schools and ₦10,000 monthly to the lucky ones serving in the state secretariat.

However, for you to be eligible for this promotion, you need to be among the first 100 lucky corpers, immediately you’re given your PPA letter, hurriedly rush to Alausa Secretariat, at the ministry of special duties to have your number, cause it’s a slot and it’s strictly on the first to come, first to serve basis.

One of the major reason why we didn’t point out Lagos state as the highest paying state for NYSC corpers is that they don’t pay this allowance to all the corps members deployed to their state, unlike Anambra state that pays everyone serving in public establishments.

Finally, it is very important to note here that some Primary Place of Assignment (PPA) also pay. My PPA then was 40k cash monthly, while some pay higher, other PPA doesn’t pay a fine, apart from 53k bi-monthly from the state government.
