- Nigerian National Youth Service Corps member Oyerinde Muhammad-Hadi Folarin expressed disappointment over receiving a monthly stipend of N2,000 from his Primary Place of Assignment (PPA).
- Folarin shared screenshots of his January salary on the micro-blogging platform, X page.
He did not escape the reality of the NYSC scheme, despite being a first class graduate of Health Education in University of Ilorin (UNILORIN)
The young guy disclosed that, although the federal government provides N33,000 per month to corps members, he receives N2000 at the end of each month from his private PPA in Abuja.
Folarin claims that if he hadn’t planned to work a 9–5 job, he would have cancelled the NYSC program.
Sharing a screenshot of his credit alert, he wrote, “If I post a screenshot of how much I’m paid monthly where my PPA attached me to, this timeline would go bonkers.”
“If not for prospects of being a 9-5 worker, this scheme is highly unnecessary.”As people commented on the post, many related their experiences with PPAs, and the post immediately went viral.
