Some members of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) serving in Enugu State have expressed concern over the high cost of house rent in Enugu and its environs.
The corps members who spoke in separate interviews told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Enugu, that the situation had posed many difficulties on them as they were paid a paltry N800 and N1,000 as monthly allowance by the state government.
NAN reports that the cost of rent of one-bedroom within the State Capital Territory was as high as N300, 000 per annum, including agency and lawyer fees.
A one-room self-contained within the same location rents for between N180, 000 and N250, 000 per annum, including agency and lawyer fees.
