It been a long while, I last posted here. I hope this post get visibility and share on the Telegram channel. (I will actually message @donenysc for that too).

Let us get right into it, just check telegram after a long time and saw that people are now reported to camp, I this post, I will be sharing how to be a sharp corper and at the end share a picture of our ancestor that served 1976. (Huh not so long at least many will still be alive, but I am sure they must have hack their way).



Hack 1- Many go to NYSC with alot of excitement, but less consciousness of their health and finance;



Life can look rosy in camps, pictures and glamour but don't be deceived. That is why you see some falling and collapsing in camp. If you are now in camp, you have past the risk of road, rail, or air travel. But there is still more reason to be smart.


Never over spend thinking things will just happen after camp, be conscious.



Hack 2- Not all parade or activities is compulsory;



Depending on which camp you find yourself, but this is a stem of the first hack. DO NOT OVERSTRESS YOURSELF be conscious, you can always stay back. lock yourself in the room (remember this are hacks and they are proven hacks) Soldiers will shout but wouldn't hurt or hit you. If you ignore fear you can stay back to read or rest.


Afternoon parade can be okay for some, but if not you give yourself brain, we will talk more about this. WHEN SOME USE 2 WEEKS BREAK AFTER CAMP TO REST OTHER USE IT IN THE HOSIPTAL because their body broke down.


Things like been in the kitchen, man o war, clinic can save you stress and unnecessary wahala, so be wise



Hack 3 - You can eat camp food if you are not buoyant financially;



If you are in this category, using this hack sure the last thing you want to consider is spending on camp yellow/sexy girls. Chai, if you think federal government is now your good uncle. Let me tell you they don't pay when due every time, and leave camp is very costly.


So if you don't have additional support from somewhere does girls you might never see them again forever, so will relocate, so posted to a far distance PPA. So my guy be smart. They often say in camp that girls save more than they came with just because of this.


Camp food doesn't kill, may not be sweet but at least you have something to return home and not that you are begging people for your first money food, T'fare (especially serving in long distance). You can wash your cloth yourself don't copy the jones.



Hack 4- Look at your environment before loosening up;



Many complain about Nigeria but when they get to camp, there is just this vibe where you feel you are not part of the presidency. Don't be foolish those protection and vibe is because you are together. You would be like that in the next few weeks.


So what is my point, look at the field, toilet and environment well before loosing up. Many camp bath room requires you waking up early to have anything that can be close to a quality birth


Next and most important is you are playing football, look at the field, if you fall or get injured na, your body oo. Don't because of impressing your platoon mate or that girl, be foolish. First aid is free but the marks we always remain with you. So measure the risk, your are not paid like Messi (Still he value his body)



Hack 5 - Be nice;



There is always no point been a jerk, you want to look like big boy or girl while loosing opportunity some people dey camp wey fit here you get better PPA or relocation. (Not by sleeping with soldier this time oo). But by been nice to people.


Think creatively, how to impress the state coordinator (one way is by been artistic draw him/her and present it to him/her) and there are many other ways, be smart.


Some of this camp official left there family to be with you there so a little help wouldn't hurt. They are NYSC officials that will be with you the own year.


The essence and summary is be wise, hope I am not too mean neither am I trying to say be a boring person. I am just trying to say don't be an Otondo and let me end like I said with the pictures of our parent who served 1976

Like you know, trying to get information, from different sources can be overwhelming. Even official NYSC page, uses several post and image to send out information, so some tend to miss out from vital information.


That is the essence of and with growing information created a channel to share only vital info, yet there can just be alot to communicate at once that social media scroll up and down will not present well.


Let us jump into it;


It is no more news that NYSC has release deployment for some PCM (though some pcm who register Batch A still yet to be place in a stream)



Some PCM posted to Lagos will do their orientation camp in Ogun and Oyo camps



So if you are yet to check the location of your camp, check it well now before setting out even as registration 27th July, 2021



PCMs who cannot print their Call-up Letter have been moved to 2021 Batch 'B' Stream II.



Note that this does not apply for those who miss camp, as it as earlier been stated that they will have to wait till 2022 Batch A before they can revalidate.
And honestly with alot of backlog of graduate on ground it might take time and been deliberate from the scheme to smoothness things out. If not the program will become unpredictable and a potential official time waster for graduate, which i know might not help attract foreign graduate to the system like before.



You will not be registered in camp, if there is disparity in the Name on the Statement of Result and that on the Call-up Letter.
Apply for Name Correction (Addition or Removal) on your dashboard.
Note that your SAO will process online by uploading backing documents.



Before doing documentation, there is still an opportunity to check all your detail to dot the i's and cross the T's. So kindly check now



What materials do I need for camp



Check here for the materials you will be needing, not not all materials is important and it depend on individuals



How can I get to camp



You can always use the local car pack, if you can't afford flight for long journey. try and split your journey. Note that life is important in this present security condition of the country journey strictly in the day and let know your direction.



Lastly NYSC 2021 Batch B Memo

Hi, I'm Collins E. O, a fellow Corp member in Osun.


In addition, am a Digital Marketer, Social Media Influencer, writer of Digital Marketing books.


I want to share with you how I stay for close to two months without spending my Alawee and yet I survived and am surviving.


This is my story, my first Alawee was hacked.😳😨. I received mine by hand and I deposited to my normal bank account, but the next day I received several debits alerts and my money was gone within two days.😭😭. I still have proofs of these untraced debits alert.
I couldn't go out of the camp to a bank, so I went to the POS were I deposited to complain to them, and I was referred to the account office in camp, and they referred me bank to the POS🤦‍♂️.


Even in camp I was sick and had no money to buy drugs, but a roommate took the responsibility and am forever grateful.
Quite a long story🤦‍♂️..


For the two weeks holiday given to every corps members, I didn't go back home, I just remained in my logde because I didn't want my parents to hear of the issue. 🥲 It was painful😖😫😩... But, I had to look for a way out.


So I stayed back and started hustling the net.💻👨‍💻 for any legit online opportunities that can fetch money. After all, I fear God, so I can't commit fraud/scam.


BOOM💥 I discovered I could work online for people and earn legit money. This is Digital Marketing . I start with Influencer Marketing, and some days later, I saw a 30 days Digital Marketing training and paid for it.


Right now, am forever grateful I paid for that class🥰.


Am sharing this because, I have heard cases of very many persons who finished their Alawee within 7days and after that they begin to live from hand to mouth🥲.
Anyways, it's not a new story.


But, the new thing is, I got a solution😄👍


I decided to bring this solution into a piece of write up, that explain some digital skills and how you can monetize them and FREE yourself off, "ALAWEE DON FINISH".


With these skills, anybody, whether you have a skill before or you are without skill like me😄 You can still earn from anywhere and anytime with no starting capital.


I mean, I was broke, the only capital I had was to take action to get out of being broke😄👍...


I know you want this piece of information, but before then be aware, Digital Marketing World is very broad, and in this piece of write up that changed my life, you will be taught 17 digital skills , that can help you to earn anywhere and anytime.


Just only one took me out of being broke😆, and am grateful to God for coming across digital marketing skills.


No dulling, let's move.🚗🚙🔊


This piece of write up is what I called The 7 Figures Digital Marketing Master Course


Please, don't read further if you won't take action. This information will be useful to only those who take action.

As you get excited and pumped up about the coming NYSC this fundamental things need to be at the bad of your head to be a smart PCM not already an Otondo one.


The Facts are;


  1. Covid 19 is still around and the normal little no mobilization will still apply

  2. So be abit prepared for disappointed of not going now,

  3. If you are not part of the about 1200 that will be going per state, just note that you should keep doing what you are doing, don't let NYSC waste of time/life, 2020 has shown us all that we can wait, plans canceled or shifted

  4. Before you start spending 200k or whatever to serve in lagos, note that not everyone posted in Lagos will camp in lagos with this there might not be not much difference between those who relocate to lagos and you

  5. Lastly don't trust that NYSC will allow anyhow redeployment. Learn from the past batch and don't join to waste your time/life. NYSC is meant to be enjoy so don't spend unnecessary time at home when your only one year you can be called a corper pass away.


I rest my case, share with other and if you have not joined or added your other colleague to NYSC Group do that by


Nigeria we serve

Thanks

We will be Note 5 New ones tonight



1st Silly mistakes correction



PCMS with wrongly uploaded Passport Photograph during Online Registration to contact our state secretariat before the commencement of the orientation exercise.
Note that there will no change of passport photograph after camp registration


I wonder how someone should make this mistake, that means your fingerprint is most likely wrong, anyway things happen and situations differs



2nd Date of Graduation



PCMs should note this. Your date of graduation is the date senate approved your result. The date of graduation on your Statement of Result should not be different from the one on your dashboard. Since the Institution who gave you your Statement of Result, also uploaded your record ( date of graduation) online which appears on your dashboard and eventually on your Call-up Letter.



3rd Date of graduation implication



PCMs should note that they will not be registered in camp, if there is disparity in the date of graduation on the Statement of Result and that of their dashboard which will appear on their Call-up Letter.
Note that the date of graduation on your dashboard was uploaded by your Institution.
You are to Contact your Institution (SAO) if there is disparity.


This is the new thing in town to be noting while doing/undergoing your registration there is need to check for correspondence, not only DOB again



4th Corrections available



PCMs are to make use of the links on their dashboard appropriately


  1. Name Correction.
  2. Correction of Date of Birth.
  3. Correction of Qualification.
  4. Correction of Class of Degree.
  5. Correction of Course of Study.

Some of this link might not sure immediately on your dashboard but once you have call up number, expect to see them

5th NYSC error Correction requirement and timeline

Reasons for Name Disapproval.

  1. Total change of name/names.
  2. Introduction of new name, not in any of your records.
  3. Wrongly application of name correction.

Note: If you applied for Name re-arrangement and spelling errors, be patient. It will be treated and it

NYSC have actually release many update till date and many surprising things and changes sef.


This post was created instead of moving from one NYSC picture to another, we simply want to compress them to a single post you can check through.



1st is the no deployment rules



Effective from 2021 Batch 'B' there will be no self deployment options on the portal during online registration.
NYSC Management reserves the authority to deploy all Prospective Corps Members Nationwide based on approved criteria.



2nd is NYSC Batch B Registration starts with no notification



Online registration for 2021 NYSC Batch 'B' commence today 29th of June to 12th of July



3rd is error correction by PCM



PCM are to make use of the links on their dashboard appropriately
(This cover following error)


  1. Name Correction
  2. Correction of Date of Birth
  3. Correction of Qualifications
  4. Correction of Class of Degree
  5. Correction of Course of Study

4th reminder of married female posting

Married female corpers who want to apply for Concessional Posting base on martial grounds are to upload the following documents;

  1. Marriage certificate
  2. Newspaper of change of name
  3. Identity of husband (National ID or Driver's License)
  4. Evidence of husband state of residence
  5. Letter from employer/utility bills

5th NYSC also unveil some changes to the certificate

Effective from 2021 Batch 'B' the following will be on both certificate of national service as well as exemption letter;a. Date of Graduationb. Course of StudyIf your date of graduation is wrong report to the institution for correction. You can also apply for course correction on the dashboard your SAO will see it and treat it.Failure to do so implies you will not be registered at the Orientation Camp. Note that NYSC will no longer correct date of graduation after Camp Registration.

We should not forget that this number 5 is after they started putting date of birth (DOB) on the certificate that is all this on one certificate.

6th Name addition or removal error

PCM can apply for addition or removal from their dashboard. Your SAO will see the request and process it by uploading the following scanned documents;

  1. Recommendation Letter signed by the Registar
  2. Senate list extract from the school where you name appears
  3. JAMB Admission Letter
  4. Statement of Results

It is good letting PCM know what to expect from the school to send at least they know how to follow up with their school to, incase you don't know SAO mean Student Affairs Officer



7th which is the last, it is usual warning of proxy registration



Warning
The number 1 cause of problem is allowing a cyber cafe operator to register for you when you are absent (especially thumbprinting)
Make sure you are present when during your online registration
If the cyber cafe can't register you while present go to another cafe immediately.


This is important too especially in time when there is alot to check on your registration and dashboard.


Another comment, I love to note is the addition of person to contact in case of death, if there is chance of death in this scheme then make it optional. Contact in case of emergency is already there which one is death again.


I know they been experiencing death that is the reason to the inclusion. But that is a prove that deployment needs overhauling not to include the 1st discuss today of blank deployment. Which will even include more expensive bribing


Thanks for reading

I made a part payment to a property agent for an apartment. By the next day. I asked for a refund because of security concerns I had about the place. The so called agent told me I should wait till they got a new tenant for the place. After waiting for a week.. I went back to the house and met with the landlord who told me no money was given to him. He called his agent to confirm and to which is agent replied in the negative(His agent was introduced to me by mine)
I then called my agent who told me they had spent part of the money. That he would refund that day


To cut the story short we are still on the issue. The man keeps telling lies upon lies. I was able to get part of the money yesterday (#50, 000 from the initial #110, 000 I sent to him ) with more lies rather than promises he will pay up


This is my very first experience with property agents and I must say it's been a terrible one


Here are the details of the agent. It might be useful to someone


08035619579, 08169172905
Otunba Akinlade and Sons Property


Address
Patinum Property Nig Ltd.
Tollgate Bustop


Update
The agents finally paid 45000 after much lies and intervention of other people.
Saying they will pay only 5000 and keep 10000
Bottom line. These agents are very dishonest and will stop at nothing to frustrate you

Today we will be explaining why and how to go about NYSC Date of Birth Correction.


The first thing to note is that the wrong date of birth is not a big deal and that does not mean that it can't be changed.


For 2021 Batch A Stream 2 there is important news below this post.


Let us dive into it;


WHY SHOULD I CARE?


Don't think it is dumb question to ask, actually some don't care especially in the rush of getting their registration done, so some don't know, why others wave it.


But you should not.


Unlike before on every certificate, there is now your date of birth there so not paying attention to this now when it can be fixed might lead to an employer not taking your certificate serious,


And do you know what; There can't be any correction of Date of Birth on Certificate of National Service (CNS) after the completion of National Service.


That is why I strongly advised to utilize the link provided on your dashboard for Date of Birth correction during your Online Registration, or before going to camp.


Still, on why you should care; NYSC (National Youth Service Corp) will not entertain any request for Date of Birth correction once you have been deployed in camp or during the commencement of your Service year.


So the question is now why not now

HOW TO GO ABOUT THIS CHANGE


In answering this we will have to talk about this change and where does the mistake comes from, because these days from the little registration I have seen it is usually rampant for there to be a mistake on people's portal.


First, it can't just change on the portal, I think by now it should be obvious to everyone. It is information NYSC got from your JAMB Registration Number that was displayed.


This information is also sent to jamb by from your SSCE (Senior Secondary Certificate Examination) registration. Be it WAEC, NECO, or GCE.


Therefore for this to be solved it has to be resolved by this body. Right now I will be walking you through the process for the correction from the WAEC perspective which I want to believe is the most common.


The following procedures are to be followed:


1. Get 19 or 20 digits WAEC verification pin from any First Bank branch


2. log in to your dashboard and click on the link to Date of Birth


3. Enter WAEC Verification PIN, select WAEC Type, Year of exam and enter your Examination Number; and


4. Click on Verify button


5. Click SUBMIT or CANCEL


NOW THE NEWS

Hello, just feel like posting all these many updates and pics that NYSC keeps releasing.


I feel those text posts might be better than these pictures, I don't know if you feel like that too? Too many of them on my phone already. Let me know your thought on this on


Let go about this, It is not new that the registration only lasted for 5 days, I wonder how many are captured, but definitely good because they know what they want FEW PCM, this will translate to STRICT ARRANGEMENT too.


1 . Orientation Course has been scheduled to 10th to 30th of March 2021, not seeing your callup letter means you are in stream 2 which is by May 2021


  • my thoughts that means last entry will be Saturday 13th, and Swearing-In Monday

2 . PCM must adhere strictly to the assigned date of reporting to the orientation camp, has no PCM will be allowed before their date

  • my thoughts are they really planing for disappointment and what of those traveling from long distance. I know they might not like before but after will be permitted

3 . Some PCM deployed to Lagos will have their orientation courses in Osun, Oyo, or Ogun camps. Same goes for Abuja has some PCM will be camping at Kogi

  • my thoughts that means Lagos is still overcrowded and they want and some states lacking, what if I want to enjoy camping at those camp, what is the qualification to be among the foremost some

4 . 2021 Batch A stream 1 PCM are to register for covid 19 test. The NCDC link is on the dashboard of every PCM

  • my thoughts only those who are negative will be let into the camp, while any other result from this will be handled over NCDC

Finally this dashboard to this moment of writing this is not available, as there is configuration error and their server is down

It will be great to educate ourselves on what we should and can expect.
Many are getting excited already on the Senate list release. But to be frank that is a good accomplishment but doesn't mean you are going to camp by March/ April


60342e8b3e670


Why that is what this picture above explains;


Zoom out: The screenshot is not to represent the date, but a new norm of post-pandemic mobilization. Before the PTF gave NYSC the go-ahead to start holding orientation, which is crucial in the deployment of graduates. The work out a new system of operation with NCDC, which we have videos of this protocol on


Implication of this new system: It means NYSC has slightly changed from what your brother or elder use to narrate to you. Yes, definitely the world changed too. But one thing we notice about NYSC and almost any system that works is that they don't change it easily. Therefore


  • The Numbers of graduates that can be mobilized change. Like that opening up of camp seminar, an average of 800 corpers per state
  • Some school have department may be close to that number, so it means all of you can not go once
  • The date of reporting to camp, like also shown there 200 per day
  • Meaning you might not rely on someone else to get you to camp as you may all have different days
  • No Positive graduate will be allowed in the camp, as the new rules have shown every PCM not swore in is not one of the corps members, and testing positive will means such will be handed over to the NCDC
  • Several streams of a batch will now be conducted so as to accommodate more corpers in a batch just not at the same time in the camp
  • NYSC has made a calculation with small numbers and will not want to accommodate not reporting to camp on time or breaching this rule
  • Therefore if you are not yet ready , no need going to register, once you are mobilized by your institution you can always register anytime, once registered and callup disobeying the clarion call is the crime

Conclusion:Therefore in summary this means you should relax it is not always the first register that will guarantee, first deployed. The chance and rush for deployment as been on a lot of air even when there is full capacity, so don't just totally leave what you are doing, what if you do not call up till stream 3.

We will be talking today more about the age qualification of NYSC, if you don't know NYSC is only for below 30 years but who is this below 30? and why are old people in the camp? (maybe not this covid times she)


For more on the Academic qualification


6034239b77c85


In preparation for online registration series 3


You are only mobilize based on the age on the day you graduated. Not your current age


Most likely it will be sent by your department, the day you finished your final exams.


Why is this important; Some PCM with 2019/2020 set that is now 30 can still hope that they will be mobilized to serve their fatherland

Today, we will be talking about how to prepare for NYSC camp or better put orientation program.


This will talk more on the mental preparation if you want to read about the academic preparation .


  1. The foundation of a successful service year is the orientation course programme or camp training. The first duty you owe yourself, therefore, is to live through the rigours of the camp exercise and be sufficiently focused to imbibe the instructive training. This has not changed due to pandemic, but maybe worst because the numbers have reduce and the eye is on everyone now, that before. Note that the course is a compendium of the service year where the facts, the figure, the dos, and don'ts are spelt out.

A corp member that fails to listen well or ignore the lessons of the camp does so his/her own risk and exposed to diverse dangers during the service year. Many sensitization is done during this orientation course including Security, Health, Community Development Service and even Skills Acquisition that can be useful for anyone during/after the service year.

  1. The following are important points to note

a. Make up your mind to adapt, submit to, and obey all the rules and regulations spelt out for NYSC scheme, on your call letter when you get them.


b. Determine to persevere, be painstaking, and diligent.


c. Endeavour as a matter of compulsion to carefully read and study all materials, protocols, and instruction issued to you.


d. Be committed to keeping a notebook for jotting important information arising from all lectures and other instructional sessions. Those will become very valuable during your primary assignment.


e. There is emergency training meant to prepare you mentally and physically for survival during periods of crisis. Make sure you respond sharply and promptly to fire alarms, which is a military drill for mobilizing people. These are essential tools for your safety and general security.


f. Report promptly to your primary assignment duty post after the orientation exercise. participate effectively in the local reception and welcome programmes. Register and take the briefing from the NYSC Local Government Inspectors seriously.


g. Always stay connected with other corps members and if you have any questions ask them. A good way to stay connected is by joining Telegram NYSC Supergroup by searching "nyscgroup" on Telegram or CLICKING HERE


Immediately has you have posting save your LGI number and since you don't have it yet you can check out NYSC Distress Line on that group.


Like, I said earlier this post is for mental preparation, and with our society getting more and more unsafe in almost all parts of the country (not to scare anyone) we need to prepare all around.
Thanks

Though, this pandemic times is an exception as some NYSC cardinal programmes couldn't hold well enough as before, but notwithstanding we will be talking about the format for embarking on group exclusion/adventure.


If you are posted to a new location, exploring the environment is something that you need to do, but you should know just like every other thing in NYSC there is an expected Format.


However, it is necessary to inform NYSC about this especially if you are doing this as a group or CDS;


  1. Request and Get formal permission from your state coordinator through your ZI (Zonal Inspector) or LGI.
  2. Get detailed condition, information and do and do not of where you are going from the relevant government agency.
  3. Get the Permission and consent of the owner or custodian of where you are going (don't just where NYSC kits to invade other's property).
  4. Secure the services of a guide through the Head of the Community or organization in charge of the site (Don't get lost which intending to have fun and if you are a group be onsite of others).
  5. Avoid high-risk sites or visit them during off-season.
  6. Ensure you have the necessary skills and materials for whatever recreational activity you want to engage in (Swimming kit, Climbing rope, etc).
  7. Don't leave the local government or whereever you leaving without first aid kit (be knowledgeable about it's use).

Let us move to the very important ones even if you are going for INEC duty as a corps members

  1. Endeavour to disclose your medical condition to your colleagues (e.g asthma, in case you experience crises).
  2. Let your next-door neighbor, PPA colleagues, close friend or family know where you are going, and when you will be back.
  3. Always pay attention to the weather, and prepare for weather changes (note if the weather is not favour anything is cancelable at let pandemic has made that obvious).

If you take note of all these things you will have your exclusion proposal approved easily.


You can likewise make this an ultimate guide for any of your travel and tour.

Greetings to everyone,


How is the service journey going, it is really disrupted now,


I came here after seen a post on our "10 FACTS ABOUT LIFE AFTER NYSC" and this make me remember my post sometime last year on post NYSC depression, I told the author of the features post to include the link there too. I hope he does.


I also saw a question on the nysc group and I kind of like the way Admin answered it, that is what I feel like sharing


"
Attention!


All 2020 batch 'A' corps members who have over 100,000 in thier account should immediately move such money to another account or upgrade the account to avoid NEFT returns in the coming payment of January 2021 allowance.


This is a directive from head of account, NYSC.


Thank you.


Is this true?
"


I actually saw someone share it on my NYSC WhatsApp page before one of the admin explained, what it means


"
I really doubt the authentic of such, NYSC opened account are standard account


And perhaps National Electronic Funds Transfer (NEFT) is for initiating a Transaction not for a collected one
"


I did a little research on it likewise, I discover that it is just like any other form of electronic funds transfer or payment just like Point of Sale terminals (PoS), Automated Teller Machine (ATM) and Unstructured Supplementary Service Data (USSD).


And have nothing to do with your account, just like Ussd with just not remove your money and infact action taken by this electronic fund transfer are irrevocable funds transfer instruction. That it only need court order to remove, and perhaps the law guiding Nigeria Interbank Settlement System (NIBSS) stipulated that in case or return for NEFT return will be 24 hrs and for NIP 10 mins


Finally I know if Nigeria even does allow NEFT anyhow, why should a government legally earned money be taken away, I feel that will be wrong too


Thanks

Hello everyone it been a while, I have written here, If you are yet to read the post I wrote on


Let jump right into it,


NYSC Relocation/Redeployment

How it works and everything about it


Relocation is like a product/service of NYSC(National Youth Service Corps), and you must know this service of the scheme is very regulated and most importantly FREE


Before we diver into who can get relocated and on what basis, let us talk about the things itself


NYSC Redeployment or Relocation like the name says it is the act of changing your state code and deployment.
Every graduating student or prospective corps members are given the opportunity to choice 4 state in which NYSC will later put or better word post/deploy you into 1.


This 1 state to have it changed is what is called NYSC Relocation or Redeployment and it can be done several times, for genuine reason though.


Noted everything I will be saying here are the norms and some peoples cases might have differ this norms.


How is the process carried out


With the full computerisation of the operations of NYSC, relocation exercise is done online.


This start during the online registration exercise, in which the platform provides opportunities for married women and people with life-threatening ailments not only to indicate their status but also upload their evidence and get automatically posted to their spouses’ places of domicile or health facilities respectively.


We are already answering the next question


But let us continue on this first, corps members are given the opportunity to apply for relocation on marital or health grounds while in the orientation camps. Relocation is done electronically and filled manually especially in place with automatic redeployment(We will further get into that)


Can I get relocated/redeployed after camp?


After the camp relocation is still possible for any corps members who meet the criteria(we will discuss that soon). But such relocations are carried out three (3) months after the orientation course. The corps members must apply online and the State Coordinators appropriately recommend online too before the relocations are effected.


Can I redeploy anytime I want


No, (short answer) NYSC policy stop relocations or redeployment (6) months into the service year


Let move to the criteria that qualify you for relocation


Relocation happens on 2 (two) major grounds namely: Marital and Health.
But there is a third sweet spot like I call it, Insecurity
This sweet spot is available for corpers posted to Yobe, Bornu, Adamawa. It might sound odd but Bornu is the best of the three.
You pick Bornu from the onset and you don't end too far north but may Katsina, Jigawa or Kano for your camping.


The other two(2) criteria involves valid documents,
Marital
such as:


  • Marriage Certificate or Affidavit of Marriage,
  • Newspaper Change of Name,
  • A Letter indicating the husbands Place of Domicile.

Which must have been uploaded online during registration and verified in camp,
Health
for health grounds documents upload is likewise required including your doctor licence number, details of the aliment and proof.
This is only applicable to only those with life threatening ailments. The applicant must support his/her request with his/her Medical History and be ready to appear before a Medical Panel for an interview that will either validate or invalidate the request as the case may be.


How it looks like(Sample of NYSC redeployment letter)


All the above said is to get something like this ????????
5fe775fc1b5ac


2020 Relocation Terms
5fec7911ef9ff


In conclusion


Like I said in the beginning National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) Scheme does not charge money for relocation which is the right of every qualified Corps Member, neither does it charge money for deployment, posting or any of the services it renders, nor as an agent. So be careful of those who make themselves one


Thanks for reading through, you can give a thumbs up, if you are educated more about NYSC scheme even if just a little, comment using the reply button on the menu option. Create your topics, share your experience.

On our platforms we have discussed almost all camp activities from , to expectations and reality of NYSC camp.


Today we want to highlight four major NYSC camp hacks to getting a good PPA with screenshot of those doing them


The hacks we will be discussing here, are applicable for everyone, as one of the way getting good PPA that we can't ignore is via connection.


Let us start this by saying two of the four segment of the scheme is orientation course, and place of primary assignment (PPA).


You get a place of primary assignment (PPA) after the three weeks in camp in a posting letter, while some will redeploy to another state.


But before this day of posting, what is I can tell you how anyone can influence this result so that we will not just fall in sadness like many do after seen the local government and villages.


A- Be outstanding with parade:


Everyone is forced to join parade, and I wish everybody can get the better but it is far from the reality. Therefore you need to put on your A game, and be outstanding with your performance not necessarily in the whole camp, but at least in the platoon.


5fded1300716e


B- Be a platoon leader


Like the word of that says leaders will be the chief servant. If you think the idea of been a platoon leader is glamorous, read that again, you are literally serving others and protecting their interests.
But this service come with a reward of getting a good PPA and local government when you will not regret serving others for one year


5fded1db4e7fa


C- Be a volunteer


Volunteering is another hack in the toolkit to getting a good PPA with electricity and good network
Things you can volunteer for include; Man O War, OBS(Orientation Broadcasting Service), Medical team, Kitchen team, Religion leader, Quarter guard, Band.


5fded277c81ba


Note that not some of this volunteering need some level of interest extra work and maybe experience. Been outstanding in this will set you to been retained in the state capital, even as some can come back to camp to assist out batches.
5fded28e448a6


D- Mr Macho or Madam Macho


Lastly, you can compete for things, in camp if you have the physic you can win and be sure recognition for Mr and Miss Marcho
5fded44482457


In conclusion
You should be see the pattern now, if you don't have someone to influence your posting or a first class degree in university and you don't want to be sleeping around as a lady which sometimes do not work.


The hack here is recognisable service. During my time in camp, the guy that draw a portrait of the state coordinator have access to know where it is been redeployed to before others, while us we are still struggling to check portal, he is sure of where to go.


But why?


Outstanding service, we must know this is a human scheme and you want to make your name recognisable in this 3 wks to impress people that matter.


Don't mind my use of words, you must not have the mind of impressing actually. That is why some people go through this hack and still doesn't work for them, You get


What do you think should be added, let us know by commenting on NYSC Telegram channel by searching "nyscmembers" on Telegram or on our group by clicking here

This are things to pay attention to, even as you go through the course of your orientation camp


NYSC Orientation Camp is a once in a life opportunity . its a time you really meet different kind of individuals most especially for the butty children and those who went to private university. You will meet , live and learn from strangers. At the end of the day, our experiences might be different but having a fore-knowledge of what to expect will reduce your “camp-shock.” For some this would be a 3 weeks to remember . Try to prepare well as much as you can for the 3 weeks of camp life:


NUMBER 1: HAVE ENOUGH CASH FOR SPENDING.
Yes o . everything in camp is about money . You pay to charge phones , pay to wash , some pay to eat (mammi). pay to even use clean toilets. So just try o and have enough cash. But having experienced being broke (you might not get an ATM to withdraw money), I’ll say please bring pocket money…
But also learn to budget. Don’t spend extravagantly… Be very frugal in your spending. Don’t buy everything you see… Also don’t allow camp photographers take pictures of you randomly- of course unless it is part of
your plan. Be kind to others but also ensure you are not careless with your spending.


NUMBER 2: THE TOILETS & BATHROOMS
These is another aspect to prepare for. Most camps if not all do not have good toilets and bathrooms. Some people have to bath outside , some in
the bush and like i said in number 1 if you have money you could pay around to use a clean one . Just do not expect to see a good one . Some
people have to wake up as early as 3 am to have their bath.


NUMBER 3: SECURITY
Security should be your watch word right from the first minute you step into camp till after you step out of camp. You don’t know the kind of human beings you would mix up with. Just try as much as possible to have
a kind of safe lock for your bags. Most importantly you don’t have to show off or flaunt what you have then you are calling the petty thieves to come collect what they want. Note that nothing is too small to be stolen o!. Be very careful with your belongings…
For example, don’t leave your phone or purse on your bed and turn away for a minute. Don’t get me wrong, the camp is pretty safe. But some cases of theft were reported in my hostel as well as others. There are no locks on hostel doors so everyone including non-corpers (e.g. women who hawk goods) have access to these hostels. So, ensure you up your skills in keeping your things safe.


NUMBER 4 :KITCHEN FOOD
I never ate camp food for once ,i only used my kitchen card to collect bread once. It all depends on you, Some corpers are ‘allergic’ to eating from camp kitchen so they end up spending a huge part of their pocket- money in ‘Mami market.’ The government paid loads to ensure you have three square meal per day. Don’t miss the opportunity to use your meal ticket. Okay, they don’t cook the best meal. But trust me, it is not that bad. You can complement what the kitchen provide with fruits from Mammi
market.


NUMBER 5 : BE SOCIAL
Make friends , no one is an island . Camp is an opportunity for you to make friends .Camp life is pretty stressful. Being around the right people or having the right people around you will help you stay sane. But don’t be too desperate about making friends that you land in the wrong company.
Try to have fun… and relax. Don’t complain too much. Moaning and depressing murmurings will leave you exhausted. Avoid depressing conversations if possible.


NUMBER 6 : EXPECT THE WORST
Do not get to camp expecting everything to be as you planned or have been told. Things change . So the best advice i can give you is just to expect the worst.


NUMBER 7: MAMMY MARKET
Almighty Mammy market is the happening place in camp. It is the spot where things are sold on camp. And yes, things are very expensive there.
The traders/retailers there blame the inflation in the market on camp officials. They say they were charged mercilessly for their rented space. So corpers bear the burden. To avoid being exploited in this market, try as much as you can to come with all the things you need . The traders know that you don’t have any other choice than o buy it there. In mammy is where you have different canteens and restaurants and bars. Some Corpers resume their early in the morning and close with them at night sef .lol. It's just the happening place in camp .There is no camp without mammy
market.


NUMBER 8: RELIGIOUS ACTIVITIES
In every camp there are various worship groups but the only recognized ones by the NYSC officials are the NCCF (National christian Corpers fellowship) and MCAN (Muslim corpers association of Nigeria) . There are also
Winners christian fellowship , Catholic fellowship , Believers world and even deeper life fellowship. Actually due to the various activities in camp one may even not attend there religious activities but that’s no excuse o.There are also other activities competing for attention. Not to forget how tiring waking up early for all those activities can be. But try to maintain a healthy time for devotion. Attend the (NCCF), Catholic or Muslim fellowship where applicable… Don’t neglect your faith. Fellowship with brethren revitalizes.


NUMBER 9: BE ACTIVE
Do not just go to camp and warm he bench or beds ,participate in events
and activities in your various platoons where possible. There game teams like football , volleyball etc. for both male and female. There are also other competitions like miss nysc, other beauty pageants, Mr macho , Mr nysc, drama presentations , talent hunts and much more .
Try as much as you can to be active on camp… Volunteer to serve in the different groups- Nigeria red cross, OBS, man o’ war, etc. When in your platoon, also try as much as you can to participate in the group activities.
All the team dynamics is part of the learning process. Active participation is not necessarily to get cheap recognition… Or massage your ego. It is just that there is no need to tiptoe through camp… You won’t have the experience twice.
Some of the seminars are annoying or a time-waster but try as much as you can not to stay idle…listen up anyway. Maximize all learning avenues. ( I was not ultra-active but I did try to at least participate in some
activities).


NUMBER 10: FINALLY,
Congratulations on reading all the tips i have written above. I hope you’ve gained something . Well finally just go to camp open-minded to camp , I’ll advise that you take your time to actually allow yourself experience the uniqueness of the place you are posted to and the people you’ll meet as well. Try not to judge everyone and everything at first contact.
No amount of experience-sharing can replace your own unique experience
while on camp. So don’t box yourself in. Go to orientation camp and rock
the phase!! DON’T FORGET TO READ THE HAND-BOOKS YOU’LL BE
GIVEN DURING REGISTRATION. As irrelevant as the small booklets might
look, reading them will save you a lot of headache .


Bonus: Learn from the challenges you’ll face. Embrace camp life with a
thankful heart. Stay positive even when it seems you have no reason to.
Glad you are ready so read the following for more info and help.

Youths obey the clarion call
Let us lift our nation high
Under the sun or in the rain
With dedication and selflessness
Nigeria is ours, Nigeria we serve.
