    How To Apply For Nysc Relocation And Redeployment

    How to apply for Nysc Relocation/redeployment
    Relocation and redeployment of corp members is a thing that is open to any corp member that is willing to take it. NYSC has made it in such a way that if any prospective corp member has genuine reasons why he/she should not serve in the state they have been posted to, such corper has the right to request for a change of state. And that's exactly what is called "NYSC Redeployment/Relocation". But mind you, such reasons must be genuine and reasonable.


    The original intention for the creation of NYSC is that youths may move out entirely from their cultural environment to mix with people of other cultural heritage. But youths of today wants to serve in their own desired state. Therefore they are now founf of forming different lies and assumptions. Because of this, NYSC had made redeplyment possible only on 3 conditions:


    Medical Ground:  

    If as a corp member, you are having medical problem that could pose a threat to your life in the environment you have been posted, you have the right to apply for redeployment based on medical ground. But the medical issues must be a reasonable and to some extent, life threatening before your application can be considered. "You can not say you don't want to be posted to the north because you do have menstrual pain". Nobody will listen to you. And mind you, you are still going to face an interview before approval of your application.
    If the medical reason is genuine, all you will need to apply are:
    1.  A genuine medical report/certificate from your institution's medical center or from a recognized general hospital (report or certificate from private hospitals may not be considered).
    2. A hand-written application letter (you are going to see a sample of this at the end of this post)
    3. A relocation form which is going to be given to you on camp

    Marital Ground: 

    This option is only available for married female corpers who are willing to be redeployed to the sate where their husband and family resides. Before you can be considered on marital ground, you must provide the following:
    1. Your marriage certificate
    2. Evidence of change of name in any of the National Newspapers
    3. A letter from your husband's office to prove that he really resides there and work there.
    4. A hand-written application letter (you are going to see a sample of this at the end of this post)
    5. A relocation form which is going to be given to you on camp

    Security Ground:

    Some states are presently facing serious security challenges. Therefore, NYSC had made a provision for any corp member who wants to be excluded from serving in such states. States like Borno, Yobe, Adamawa, Gombe and some of the northern states are really danger zones for corp members. Those states are presently not save for corp members to serve because of the Boko-haram insurgency. Any corper serving there are doing so at their own risk. 
    The only requirement to apply for relocation in such case is filling the relocation form. If you refuse to fill the relocation form when others are doing so, you will definitely not be relocated; you will have to serve in the state.

    How To Apply

    For you to be considered for relocation, you must have filled and submitted the relocation form and attach the required documents to it. This form will be given to any interested corp member that requested for it (that is some days after everyone are through with their registrations). It will be announced anyway. So you have to be attentive and alert to know when it will be available for collection. Because if you fail to fill the form, then relocation is a "NO" for you.

    Below are samples of the relocation form you are going to be given and samples of the hand-written application you are to attach to it.
    Note: these letter here are just samples, you will have to fill in your own details instead of the ones on the sample letter; i wrote these ones just to show you how it's being written.

    How to Serve as a Ghost Corper

    If you like you can call them ghost corpers, absenting corpers, disappearing corpers, or off-site corpers. Whatever you may want to call them doesn’t really matter. But one thing about them is that, they are corpers who are not always/never at their Place of Primary Assignments (PPA) during the service year; probably because of their family, job, or future plans. Yet, such corpers collects their monthly allowances that is due to them without any problem.

    12. 1... Yes. In fact, in most cases, corpers are not actually posted to the state they wish to go. Only on marital ground is guaranteed.
      2....It may affect it depending on the two states. bot usually not more than the first 2-3 months. But it will be a delay and never a whitdrawal.
      3.... It will bear the state u are originally deployed to.

      ReplyDelete

      1. Alright.
        In that case, a letter headed paper of the office will be used to write a letter in form of attesting that he truely works in that office and they will also state that he lives in ogun state.

        However, the letter is just formality. The main thing is to provide an evidence that u are truely married.
        Married people will always get Relocation.

      1. after camp, am sure she should finish her PPA processes in 5days.
        she will then b free to go home for like 2 weeks; during that 2 weeks she will do her wedding and come back. after coming back, no one is any longer concerned if she is single or married. it no longer count.
        And peradventure she wasn't able to finish d PPA processing in d 5days, she can then walk up to her LI to speed things up so she can go home on time.

        she can also apply for relocation online; that's after camp.

        thanks for stopping by.

    31. I am sorry I couldn't explain this clearly. She wants to get relocated to where I am residing after camp because she's having her wedding with me after camp. Do she have to meet with LI? Or she has to leave for wedding and filled the online relocation form as soon as her wedding is concluded?
