Serving National Youth Service Corps members are in a delirium of sorts after the Federal Government fulfilled its promise to pay N33,000 to them as allowance.
The new allowance is more than 100 percent from the N18,000 they were paid before.
On Twitter Friday, excited corps members shared their excitement in many posts, with the #NYSC trending as the number one topic in Nigeria.
But there are downsides as well, as corps members at the brink of passing out are expressing fears of plunging into the unemployment market, where they may not even earn the basic N33,000.
Here are some tweets:

Pls don't allow the 33k make you lose focus or shift your attention from your hustle. Human wants are insatiable. The more we have, the more our needs. Anyways, I am an Ekiti Kopa with State code EK/19A/2224. And these are few works I've done during #NYSC year. pic.twitter.com/g1sYMkW6t9
