Hello everyone it been a while, I have written here, If you are yet to read the post I wrote on 10 Less known facts about NYSC click here
Let jump right into it,
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,
- 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,
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)
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
