Ten (10) NYSC Highest Paying States in Nigeria
Below are the current NYSC highest-paying states in Nigeria. Please read carefully in order to make a good choice as you prepare for youth service.
1. Lagos State
As the economic capital of Nigeria and one of the largest in Africa, Lagos state remains the number one on the list of NYSC highest paying states in Nigeria. Youth corps members in Lagos are paid N15, 000 monthly as state allowance. The icing on the cake is that, if you are lucky to be posted to a government Ministry, trust that a lot of tip-ups will trickle into your pockets. Even if you are not serving in the Ministry, certain private institutions and organisations in Lagos will pay you generously. Meanwhile, it is preferable to serve in the ministry because their compensation is guaranteed.
2. Oyo State
Since Gov. Seyi Makinde assumed office as the executive governor of Oyo state, a lot of good things have happened to the inhabitants of the state, and one of such is the increment of state allowance for corps members serving in the state from the previous paltry sum of N5, 000 to N15, 000, matching that of Lagos state. The good thing about serving in Oyo state is that the cost of living in the state is considerably lower, compare to Lagos.
3. Akwa Ibom State
This state not only has many attractive women, but it is also one of the highest paying states for NYSC. Every NYSC participant in this state receives N10, 000 state allowance at the conclusion of each month. If you spend your entire allowance and save this ten thousand dollars every month, you will have a total of one hundred thousand naira in ten months. Interesting, right?
4. Enugu State
Enugu just joined the trend, since they do not only pay corps members in the Ministry. Like Akwa Ibom State, Enugu State gives N10, 000 to each serving corps member in the state.
5. Sokoto State

9. Delta State
Delta is yet another state with a plethora of possibilities.

10. Ekiti State
Ekiti state also gives N5, 000 as a token to its youth corps members at the end of the month. It may be a little gesture, but it can still cover some expenses to enable you save some few thousands from the standard 33k.
