NYSC Allowance for States in Nigeria 2017

This is the list of NYSC Allowance for States in Nigeria. My intention is to answer the queries which our blog readers have been throwing on us for couple of weeks ago.
Keywords: 
States With Highest Payment for NYSC
Highest Paying State for NYSC

Some of the questions includes:
  • What state is the best state to serve? 
  • What is the NYSC Allowance for states in Nigeria? etc....
The above questions are the most frequently asked questions among the final year students in Nigeria. The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) is a service that requires one year of your entire life and if you are like me who is very conscious of time, you will agree with me that settling down to make a wise selection of the state to serve is important and very crucial.

Marima, your dream will surely come to reality. Congratulation in advance.

Which state would you advice someone who intend to be a teacher choose. I plan on settling down in the state after service...putting cost of living into consideration.

Akwa-Ibom State. It's the best that matches your profile.

Thanks for your info and i know God will direct me on the state of my choice

Akwa ibom no dey pay anything. be warned!!

Na 10,000 Alkwa ibom they pay oo..thanks.

una try well well for other countries na the individual dey decide where him wan go nor be the top men but for Nigeria na the top men go talk where you go stay and do but option dey sha na baba God option just consult the heavenlies and add small fasting then you are free to decide where you wan serve.

Benue the food basket (that's if am right) is not a bad place to serve at all
