As we are aware that the NYSC 2023 Batch A posting would soon commence. Most prospective corp members and graduates would be surfing the internet on the three states to chose as their best states for National Youth Service.

To answer the question – What are the best states for National Youth Service in Nigeria?, we used the following factors to create a formidable list:

  • Security
  • States that pay the highest allowance (allawee)
  • Hospitality

Most graduates would opt for big cities while some would want rural areas. Either ways, the choice is yours. Also note that the current federal allowance (allawee) paid to NYSC corp members is now N33, 000.

During my experience as a Corper, medical students are posted to hospitals and they are usually paid more than other corp members.
