This is a transcribe of all NYSC FAQ so far to date of writing this, let us simply title this series A

Let me start by saying, I am impressed by NYSC information handler, ever since the announcement of orientation camp for 10th November 2020, they been releasing graphic design of questions and answers. That is great especially knowing that NYSC has not been responsive in the past.

Now, incase you don't know, you can ask your questions in the comments section or of any of their social media and it has higher likelihood of getting an answer unlike before.

I also believe this will reduce fake new and like I always believed reduce blog spread them, I am always of the opinion of more forum where this answers can be retiritated and locally spread than channels with no sources. If you want to join NYSC Group

Questions have been coming in for a while that
What is the fate of those who are yet to complete their camping?
When is stream 2 Batch A going to be called up?
When is another mobilization taken place?

The Director-General of NYSC in this interview clarity some of that

Director General of the National Youth Service Corps, Ibrahim Shuaibu, has said that there are no plans to mobilise recent graduates in the country for the compulsory scheme due to the Coronavirus outbreak.

Shuaibu in an interview with Economic Confidential said only Batch A, Stream 1, who were asked to leave camp due to COVID-19 would be asked to complete orientation.

He said, “We don’t know when we are going to start mobilising our corps members. You know our training is also structured like that of the military and paramilitary. You can see that the Nigerian Navy recently suspended its training for its freshly recruited cadets.

“So, the moment the coast is clear, we are going to key into the way others will conduct their exercise, so that our corps members can be called back soonest.”

To some this might be a good news as they can continue whatever meanful thing thing they are doing while to others it is not as they have stopped things they are doing and expecting mobilization.

Whatever way you find yourself, you still need to be uptodate with mobilization, camping and other related new. and stay up-to-date

If you are seen a NYSC Medical Certificate Online or Online Redeployment and Relocation and you are thinking,

Can I do Online redeployment?
Can I do Online medical report?
Can I do Online medical fitness report?

The answer is simply, No can you be tested or treated online, just simply go to the hospital or government clinic to check. That might be the only time in your life to even know those details

The saddest is
Can I reduce my age to go to NYSC

Don't even if you can. NO there is so much out there than a change in location and camping for you life.

NYSC Replied with this

As the 2020 Batch 'A" Stream One Corps Members travel across the length and breadth of the country in response to the clarion call to serve the Nation, it has become very imperative to release this caveat.

1, Relocation of Corps Members is done free of charge and on two major grounds namely: Marital and Health.
Marital is applicable only to female Corps Members that are genuinely married. However, the applicant must support her application with valid documents, such as: Marriage Certificate or Affidavit of Marriage, Newspaper Change of Name, a Letter indicating the husbands Place of Domicile.
Relocation on Health ground is 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.

2, Kindly note again that the National Youth Service Corps 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.

3, Be wary of criminals who masquerade as NYSC Officers promising you what they cannot offer in order to fleece you of your money.

4, The Director - General Brigadier General Shuaibu Ibrahim DSS PhD MTRCN wishes you a resounding success as you proceed to render selfless service to the Nation.

Thank you.


Thanks, have a great trip to all prospective corp members throughout your life, service year and to camp

Good day to everyone, as a prospective corp member PCM there are a number of things that are not compulsory or even necessary to take along food is one, and before we go deep into that there are numerous list of things that is often sent around for PCMs to take along.

But if you pick all this it will make your movement to camp more stressful. ALWAYS REMEMBER CAMP IS NOT YOUR LAST DISTINATION BUT A BEGIN OF A SHORT STAY. especially for those relocating you have to bring some of this things back when you can even buy some things there

Let us start by saying materials not accepted in camp

  • Sharp objects are not allowed in camp, forks, knife etc
  • Hard drugs are not accepted on camp ground
  • Medication are generally not accepted too, their is a clinic available for your use
  • Car, and automobile are not allowed, afterall it is a camp
  • Laptops are often not accepted too

Let us move to the second point of discussion, which food will NYSC give me;

This can be the worries of some PCM but often times there are standard Nigerian food that you will be feed with with a regular and more often Bread and Tea in the morning.

To address this better, a Timetable will be set for your feeding in which with a feeding ticket, you can be served this meal. Not to forget their is also local meal given to corp member which is often dependent on your state of camping.

To conclude on this, PCM are also involved in the preperation of their mean in which every Platoon will have their kikchen day and even a cooking competition.

Important Camp Document

Document are needed in NYSCcamp for the registration procedure during camp,
you are requested to bring to camp your

  • original statement of result,
  • Institution identity card and
  • 8 recent passport photographs.
  • Callup Letter
  • Green card

In addition, if you are a Medical Doctor, Pharmacist or an Optometrist you will be
expected to bring along original of your registration certificate with the Nigerian Medical Council, Pharmacist Board or
Optometrist Registration Council and evidence of completion of housemanship or internship.

Don't forget this is the fundamental documents and you can have excess copy to prevent exuberant prices that comes with camp. But Note every other things are secondary but does not make tell less important for a memorable camp experience.


if you are yet to be in with the community of other corp member where you can ask you questions


Good day to everyone, especially to foreign graduates. March 2 is here and just a few days to beginning of NYSC camping.

  • Remember verification of your documents start on Monday March 2 for Batch A, don't forget your location of the verification that your choose.

  • If you are yet to know the details of the NYSC verification center .

  • Also note to go to the designated secretariats on time don't forget you are yet to have call up number. Meaning you are yet to be a verified prospective corp members (PCM)

  • Also note to have enough photocopies of all the 5 documents you uploaded and if you have old passport or previous visa try and get them all ready and photocopied. Photocopies around NYSC secretariat can be very expensive.

  • Lastly, be preparing for the rigour of that day and most NYSC camping activities, it is a rigour exercise.

Since Wednesday evening NYSC 2020 Batch A have been witnessing successful registration with all the four slot of state completely empty

NYSC Finally reply with a post on wrongly uploaded Thumbprint and this issue

This is to inform 2020 Batch "A" Prospective Corps Members with wrongly uploaded Thumbprint and Passport Photographs during Online Registration to contact our States Secretariat before the commencement of the Orientation Course. No change of Passport Photographs after registration at the Orientation Camp.
Those who can't select State of Deployment should exercise patience, more slots will still be available.


Continuation On Online Registration FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions) series 5

Why ask prospective corps members to pay N2,786.24 just to print call-up letters?

The N2,786.24 is not just for printing call-up letters. It is for the entire package of online registration, which requires the deployment of IT hardware and software and personnel to orientation camps all over the country but which also gives those who subscribe to it the advantage of processing their registration online, saving time during registration at the orientation camps and allowing them to use their thumbprints to identify themselves in case they lose or are dispossessed of their call-up letters.

In the past, corps members who lose or are dispossessed of their call-up letters had to go through a cumbersome process of swearing affidavits, getting validation from their schools which takes time and may force them to enlist on another batch.

With online registration, those who are unfortunate to lose their letters can identify themselves with their fingerprints. So the N2,786.24 fee is for the entire process and package of benefits.

Is the initiative not extortionist and insensitive?

As explained above, the initiative was designed with all sense of fairness and sensitivity.

It is not extortionist, as extortion implies the use of open or subtle threat. No open or subtle threat is involved here. It is not compulsory and non-use of it carries no sanction. It is only for those who choose to exercise the option after doing their own cost-benefit analysis. NYSC is sensitive to the fact that not everyone needs or can afford this.

Both those who need and can afford it and those who don’t need it or can’t afford it are given options to choose from. The initiative is thus both fair and sensitive.

Why not maintain the status quo?

Contrary to claims, the status quo remains. NYSC has not
abolished the practice of prospective corps members going to their schools to pick call-up letters.

That is still allowed. What has happened is that an extra option has been introduced, which prospective corps members may choose or may not choose to exercise. Closing this new option will not necessarily be at zero cost to those who prefer the status quo, as prospective corps members have always been responsible for picking their call-up letters. But closing the option will be at the expense of those who will prefer it as this will rob them of their right to choose.

Reasons while Prospective Corps Members should choose to travel to far place

What is the fun of doing your National youth service year at your region or zone? Many will say because of security or access to home? But not all part of Nigeria is insecure and why do you need access to home, when you can explore and have friends, father mother elsewhere, people that cheers you and want you well.
I personally have access to travel to the far north for my national youth programme, then I was posted to Yobe State and it was a whole lot of experience, let me share with you reasons why you should travel;

  1. It gets you out of your comfort zone

Whether you travel independently or as part of an in a group, you’re stepping into a completely new world that may be well out of your comfort zone. Perhaps you’ve never traveled alone before or being around people other than your close family and friends makes you feel intimidated. This people will end up been your friends at camp. But once you take the plunge, you’ll probably be surprised at the transformation that takes place. Chances are you’ll find a confidence you never knew you had and be able to take on challenges you never would have tackled previously.

  1. It puts life in perspective

If you’ve grown up, a graduate at least in your 20's with all the comforts of the modern world and had the opportunity to go to school and even university, it’s easy to forget that this isn’t the case for everyone in the Country. Traveling to other part of the country, particularly those in the local areas, can be a big wake up call and put your own life in perspective. Things that you may take for granted, like having running hot water, modern appliances and the opportunity to study in the best universities and get a well-paid job at the end of it are not available to everyone, purely because of where they were born. You’ll probably come away with a new appreciation for everything you have and the opportunities that life throws your way.

  1. You’ll make friends from across the country

One of the best things about NYSC is undoubtedly the friendships, unity it fosters and connections you make with people from people from everywhere. You might be surprised at just how close you can come to people within a matter of hours if you’re thrown together by circumstance in a Local government, that is home to neither of you. Volunteer placements are a great way to establish firm friendships as you work towards a common goal, not only with other Corp members, but also the local community. The interactions you’ll have will provide an incredible local insight into cultural traditions which can only be experienced in those state camps, beliefs and way of life on a communal level – something that you just can’t experience on TV or in a text book.

  1. You’ll discover the world’s incredible cultural diversity

Even if you live in a multicultural society like Lagos or Abuja and there are people of all beliefs and cultures living in your city, this is only scratching the surface of what is out there. NYSC Travel is a great way to immerse yourself in the cultural diversity that exists in our world. From festivals to food which you will be served in camp, ceremonies, the mammi filled with cultural wears and carnival day, it’s mind blowing the unique ways,

  1. You might learn a new language (or three)

Whether it’s just a few words (usually the curses, and greetings) or you decide to go fluent, NYSC travel is the best way to learn a new language. Once you’re immersed in a new destination, you’ll be surprised at just how fast your language skills develop with everyday interactions. Even if you can only manage

  1. NYSC Travel opens your eyes.

If you’re open and willing, journey will lead you to an incredibly more well-rounded human being. And that’s really the goal, isn’t it?

  1. Traveling develops skills you didn’t know you had

Sometimes it’s only far from home that you realize you you’ve got skills you’ve never used. It’s scheme that brings them to the surface and makes you smile, satisfied to have reached the mountain top, or crossed a gorge or helped a villager clean up after a storm, like I experienced passing through Jos in snow, cross the Niger Bridge and the vast landscape of the North (sahel)

  1. NYSC travels bring out freedom in you and make you a better man

How will it sound that after NYSC you are still fully dependent on home for everything, you can still be monitored, this is not to be unruly or irresponsible. But NYSC travelling to a long distance will allow you to make your choices, your phone will usually be dead for some day, you have to be able to navigate your way around things. Is this not what makes you a man or woman?

  1. Travel helps you move forward

You have been within the four walls of the schools for so long, you may be in a job or have kids, or relationships, around NYSC travel can be a perfect way to move from some of these life stages into your next great adventure. A big trip won’t just ease your transition into the next stage of your life, it’ll give you a chance to reflect on where you’ve been, where you’re going, and where you want to end up.

  1. Travel is education

NYSC provides platform education about more of the country that’s absolutely impossible get in school. NYSC travel will teaches you more of economy, politics, history, geography, and sociology in an intense, hands-on way no class will. Fortunately, the travel will be paid for even though negligible(bicycle allowance)

  1. It looks great on your resume

Taking a NYSC Year or time out to a distant place gives you a unique story and experience, it will always looks good on a resume, and employers see it as a sign of maturity and experienced that will make you a better employee. Most understand that travel improves confidence and independent thinking, and they are secretly hoping that you’ll step into your new professional role having seen some of the world and (perhaps) having kicked the travel bug a little!

  1. Travel challenges you and shakes things up

During your journey you will stop, like I remember will did then and I took a bike to the atm at Kogi the man was not from my tribe and I have a little paranoia. You will choose to work on the road (and keep staring at the screen), you’ll have to find a new place to drink, and depending on your destination, finding food, or money like me then look for ATM could prove to be a sizeable challenge. Travel is full of moments of joy and challenges. Overcoming the challenges gives you some of the greatest joys of all.

Finally NYSC is a means for some maybe once a life to explore and Travel so if you are about to register or travel down to camp while not see it as dreams do come true. I remember I use to take a stroll every night, to explore every around me. When weather the people, you walk in the dark and ask for road, someone somewhere will even say "Corper",

Away from your father and people you should imagined it, daydreamed about it, envisioned it. Guess what? It can be done.

Here is another chance to register again, while not Abia if you are from Osun or Ekiti if you are from Kano.
or going to camp, while not accept your posting with good faith, don't let us influence it but rather have a great stories, the opportunity will can create for others should be in our hearts

Make you choices wisely as others are direct may feel your impact better, than just looking the state allowance, like we could all do.
