All you need know about personal community development service. Good day to all prospective and serving corps members

It stroke me today as so many of my friends (corpers) were asking me on how to engage in National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) personal Community Development Service (CDS) because they also want to affect life positively as corps members. This gave me the passion to also share.

Some do it because of the award (state and presidential honor), some do it because of the joy in it as they change life(s), but whatever is your reason(s), these are the procedures to follow.

1. Project Title:
You must have carried out investigation on what project you want to do and where you want to do it. But it is important to note these when choosing your project because where you carried out your project matters alot. E.g A corps member that dug a bore hole in a slum (environment with poor people) will be highly recognized and valued than the one that dug similar bore hole in the government house etc. Secondly you should give the people what they need, not what they don't need at that moment e.g do not give an hungry man cloth to wear, instead you should give him food because at that moment, he/she needs food to survive before clothing.

2. Project Analysis
By now you must have known the project you want to carry out. The analysis includes;
(i) the cost
(ii) beneficiary
(iii) sponsor (only if you have any at that moment)
(iv) starting date and closing date (at which the project is expected to end).

3. Project Approval
The project approval is usually given by the NYSC. It is important you get it because your name and NYSC number will be written on it and it is required you attach it to any of your solicitation letters. In addition to that, it is only way your project will be documented by NYSC for any reward or recognition. And to get it, you must apply for it, and to apply for it, you will have to write a letter to NYSC following all the necessary chain of command and you will be required to attach your project analysis on that letter of request for approval letter.

NOW, you need two things from me

  1. Sample of of the letter to request for project approval from nysc. Look below for d sample
  2. Project analysis that you will attach to the letter 1 above. That's all you need to kick-start your project. Send me your email to forward the sample to you (free of charge) because its in diagrammatic form (with horizontal and vertical lines) as such I always find it difficult to past it for people. If you receive it all you need to do is to substitute, no stress.

NYSC portal database malfunction

In the dawn of the NYSC allawee news, In the early ours of today, NYSC portal experience some glitches with its database, in which serving corp members start loosing our monthly clearance presences.

Thanks to God, NYSC has paper/physical record of the data someone like me should not have been able to pass out after loosing about four month of clearance record on my dashboard, see the screenshot below.

This is part of why we should not go fully digital yet, we only know of this effect because it affect us, i only hope the glitches, has not affected other things. NYSC ICT and SIDMACH should look in the NYSC portal database malfunction

Silence is broken concerning NYSC allowance increment

It been months since the minimum wages have been approved. Finally the ministry of Youth and Sport Development is Speaking

That come next week the new allowance reflecting the new minimum wage will be released in details by the NYSC DG this is a great development especially for the PCM.

This is the screenshot of the post where he pointed this out

Two major questions that should be on PCM and CM minds is:

  1. When will the increment take effect?
  2. Will my state follow suit and emulate the gesture

Personal CDS is a form of community development service that a Corp member personally take, it is not compulsory but like the general CDS group but this is what earns Corp Member rewards and awards after their service year, for a job well done.

How to write the proposal for a personal CDS?

Note: NYSC appreciate and don't expect you to use your allowance or fund, even though some do

How to write a letter for a personal CDS?

This is what we will be dwelling on now

A sample letter

School of Nursing and Midwifery

Jekadafari, Gombe,

Gombe State.
. 19th February, 2015.

The State Coordinator,
NYSC Secretariat,
Gombe state.
Zonal Inspector,
NYSC Zonal Office,
Local Government Inspector,
NYSC Local Government Office,
The Principal,
School of Nursing and Midwifery,

Dear Sir,
I wish to apply for the above subject matter to enable me carry out the following CDS projects at the central prison yard, Gombe.
1.Provision of some basic drugs for the use of the prison inmates

  1. Provision of weighing scale and sphygmomanometer for the clinic
  2. Provision of hospital bed sheets and curtains for the clinic 4.Painting of the prison yard clinic and entrance gate. I hope my application would be kindly considered for your approval.

Yours faithfully,

Your name
(state code):ur phone number

NOTE: this sample is for Gombe state nysc, I don't know of other states but they said it is the same everywhere. And for those after state award, 2 different corps members serving in different state may end up doing similar project but one may be awarded and the other may not. It depends on the state and competition e.g corps member doing personal CDS in Lagos and Abuja may or may not get a state award as those corpers serving in less competitive/less corper populated states like Gombe and others on similar project. In those other competitive states, you may have to do more.

This is what you can call Corpers extra year. It is a consequence of illegal action of a Corp member

Let us run through the case study of Batch C 2018 in Oyo State

"The Oyo State NYSC Coordinator, Mrs Eniola Ambekemo, on Thursday, said no fewer than 33 outgoing 2018 batch C NYSC members out of 4,716 in the state had received extension of service letters.

Ambekemo, who made this disclosure in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Ibadan, added that 25 of the outgoing members absconded from service.

She said their offences ranged from absenteeism to abscondment in their places of primary assignments.

“However, one of them, Adebanjo Diekolola, received state honours award for carrying out medical outreaches, market sensitisation on genotype, sinking of deep wells at Ogunrinde village, among others.

“We have Fabunmi Tobiloba and David Adeyemi, who received commendation certificates: we are proud of you for your various efforts at developing your host communities; well done for exhibiting a high sense of discipline and resilience,” she said.

She also urged them to balance their life experiences both at the university as well as that of their service year in order to face the challenges of life."

Some where commended, with hopes of moving on with life, while the ones trying to run several life together with the service year where punished. I know many will also escape but what is worth doing is worth doing well.5d9702cd99e4c

The National Youth Service Corps has paid one million insurance cover to the family of Precious Owolabi, the Channels Television reporter and serving corps member, who was shot dead during a bloody protest by members of Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN) in Abuja in July. The scheme has also processed and paid the families of two corps members-Okanlawon Ibrahim and Ibisaki Amachree who died during the conduct of the 2019 general elections.

Amachree was killed during the February 23, 2019 presidential election in Rivers State while Okanlawon died in a boat mishap in Ondo while serving as an ad hoc work deployed by the Independent National Electoral Commission during the House of Assembly elections. The NYSC, had in a letter dated July 30th and sighted by our reporter, directed the insurance company engaged by the federal government on behalf of the scheme to process one million insurance benefit to the next of kin of the late Owolabi.

The insurance benefit was paid to Beracah Owolabi, the next of kin to the late Owolabi, by the insurance company on behalf of the NYSC. Beracah confirmed the payment of the amount to our reporter through telephone in Abuja. She said: “Yes they have made the payment to us. The payment was done in August.”

However, a top source at the NYSC told our reporter that the Independent National Electoral Commission was yet to pay Okanlawon and Amichree their insurance benefits as stipulated in the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) the scheme had with INEC. The source explained that INEC was supposed to provide a temporary insurance cover for corps members who served as ad hoc staff during elections. When our reporter contacted the National Commissioner and Chairman, Information and Voter Education Committee, INEC, Festus Okoye, last week Sunday to find out if the commission have processed any insurance benefit for the slain corps members, he promised to get back to the reporter on Tuesday.

Also, the Chief Press Secretary to the INEC Chairman, Rotimi Oyekanmi, in a Whatsapp message, only said: “The commission has an insurance package for the corps members serving as Ad-Hoc staff during elections and we have a history of responding compassionately when corps members or any ad-Hoc staff is injured or killed. Also, INEC sent a delegation led by Mr Patrick Uzoka, an Electoral Officer to condole with the family of Mrs Ibisaki Amachree who lost her life in Rivers State during the February 23 Presidential Election.”

This post will address what you should know between Revalidation and Remobilisation in NYSC. That is the difference between NYSC Revalidation and Remobilisation.

Before going into the topic, if you are a Corp member and you are yet to create a topic on this online house and lodge. You are doing other's a de-services. There is no one that is an highland of knowledge that is why we said you should share your stories and experiences here. So that some else can learn from them.

Let us go right into it when and how do I carry out NYSC Revalidation or Remobilization. Let us first define, what they are;

Revalidation like the name goes, it is confirming an exciting data, to acknowledge your continuous interest.
Remobilisation mean you are starting afresh, no exciting information, either it was removed for mispractice or left staled.

You will understand what I am saying in a moment as we relate it to what NYSC mean by those terms

What does NYSC mean by Revalidation and Remobilisation and which one fit me

  1. Who Need the NYSC Revalidation?
    Revalidation is required only for corps members who have registered online with previous batch, deployed in the previous batch, but did not go to camp. The effected corps members need to do "revalidation", so they can go to camp with the next batch.

  2. Who Need Remobilization?Remobilization is different from revalidation. Remobilization is required only from corps members who have been mobilized in a previous NYSC batch, and have been dully registered in NYSC camp, but later decamped, expelled or own their own, absconded from service.

This however is a solution to those who missed camp or absconded from service.

If you missed NYSC service for one reason or the other, and wish to go to service again, you still have the opportunity but you don't need to start fresh registration again.

What you need is either, "Revalidation" or "Remobilization".

How to do/carry out NYSC Revalidation or Remobilisation

How to do the NYSC revalidation?
First of all, visit the institution you graduated from, to make sure they submit your name on the revalidation list.
Go to and click on "revalidation", you would be prompted to 'login'; just login to your dashboard using your e-mail and password.

Choose four states
Submit your application and print out your registration slip.

NOTE: NYSC revalidation is usually done at the time when the next batch have started their online registration, so wait until then.

How to do NYSC Remobilization
Steps for remobilization
Go to
Click on "Remobilization" (for the batch you absconded or decamped) to start your registration
When you are done, submit your registration.

Something might be your right, but you must know how to ask for it. This article will expose you to how to format a letter to apply for your medical bill refund.

This is the conclusion of how to apply for medical leave. If you have not checked it, you can do so

After you have applied for leave of absence like we explained earlier check the link above, if you not read that, we also said applied on time since the letter approving day is the day your leave begins, and the day of expiration is also on the letter, remember it is a leave it is not forever.

You now have to apply for refund, if you are treated not by a military or government hospital, becos of the level of illness or history with the practitioner, etc

You must therefore obtain a receipt thereof as well as a medical report from a Military or Government Hospital. Even after all this Note that the approval of this letter is at the discretion of the National Directorate Headquarters before a refund can be considered likewise the rates as the Director-General considers fair and reasonable.

NYSC can also refund any payment made to a chemist for treatment rendered to a corp Member while on leave may only be refunded by the State Coordinator, in as much as there is no Government Hospital in the area, and at the rate the State Coordinator considers fair and reasonable

The sample of the letter is attached below, remember it is your duty to report, write and clear yourself. So write the letter on time, before the sickness get out of hand. Learn the format that you don't need that need than writing with no format of after the sickness have hooked you.

Let us start by remembering this is the third of this series NYSC Format Letter, if you are yet to check out Corpers Letters for reposting check . And for how to apply for after camp break letter Click here

Let us get right into today topic, by saying what is a medical leave, a medical leave is a leave which is considered and often granted for medical reasons.

What is even a leave to NYSC, a leave is a privilege granted at the discretion of the Director-General in accordance with the leave scales laid down by the National Directorate Headquarters from time to time.

There are few leaves that can apply to every Corp Member

  1. Post camp rest leave, (that is if your PPA allows it)
  2. Leave for your graduation/convocation
  3. Termination leave

But there is another leave that is usually granted, that is a medical leave, infact if we'll communicated to the directoriate you in service to your fatherland can get refund of all your medical bills, meaning there is medical insurance for your service.

Let us talk about the letter, a sample will be added below, so that you can see how to go about applying for this leave when the need arise and before matter get worse and out of hand. Remember it is service not slavery.

Next time, we talk about how to apply for a refund and we will have a sample letter of how to.

This article will address to everyone Corpers how to write a reposting letter, which is also called change of PPA (Place of Primary Assignment). If you are yet to see or you are in need of apply for your 2 weeks leave. Read about the format

Let us start by mentioning what is a PPA?

PPA means Place of Primary Assignment.
At the end of the orientation, Corps members are posted to their place of primary assignment. While the NYSC Management takes into consideration the areas of specialization of Corps members carrying out the posting exercise, emphasis is placed in rural posting in the areas of Agriculture, Health, Education and Infrastructure.

It is expected that Corps members should accept their posting and be agents of change contributing towards the development of their host communities.

Therefore come our main topic, the moment either by chance or circumstance even suitation you can't accept or your have accepted but you want to leave/exit this posting, this is what is called reposting.

Reposting just like many things in NYSC must be formalised, and can't be accepted or rejected not until you bring it forward with your reasons, always remember NYSC is an human scheme. And alot can happen within one year so don't manage what is not manageable.

Let us know go to how to write this letter

A sample of a letter written will be attached below, you can use it always remember it is always a formal letter, but I must give courtesy to the member of Our Group who share this picture format we are using, click of the link to be part of the group.

Life after NYSC is full of different scenarios, but the most common case is some proceed their education or enter the Labour Market. Those furthering their education will still mostly come back to the same over saturated markets that is even an understatement of the reality.

My little advice, after when allawee stop coming in

I see and met a lot of fresh graduates stay at home for 2-3 years saying they couldn't get a job and that they've tried all within their disposal but to no avail or even blame it on the Nigeria Government.

My questions are:

1. How have you been applying for that job and interviews?

2. What career path have you thought about and considered the best fit for you?

3. Have you been attending seminars that can give you some insights about the job market today?

4. Have you ever thought about going for a job/career fair lately?

5. How strong is your networking prowess?

Am sure if am to create a poll for these questions the result would be below average.

1. My advice is don't quiver in fear when being called for an interview (prepare before hand, always take a deep breath, your sitting position would give you balance when replying your recruiter)

Good morning to everyone today we give you the tips to stay ahead of the game, in landing your dream job

1) Don't wait for a job offer to jump-start your career
When jobs seem to be few and far between, it's easy to get discouraged and feel as though you have no control. A good piece of advice is that you don't have to have a job offer to get your career started. "Say you're a newly minted journalism grad (for example) — you've got to get out there and start building your journalism résumé now, even if you haven't been offered a job. Start a blog, get involved in industry organizations, volunteer your writing services — create your own opportunities. And this advice applies across industries," says Charles Purdy. Get motivated by researching the backgrounds of people you admire in your field. They had to start somewhere, too.

2) Don't make your cover letter and résumé all about you
While the main purpose of your résumé is to highlight your personal experience, when employers view it, they're really thinking about themselves and the company. "It's important to remember the cover letter and résumé are about what you can do for the employer, not the other way around," says Josh Tolan. "Showcase the skills you have that are most relevant to your prospective employer, and keep the focus on the company's mission and goals. In your cover letter, mention something you admire about the company and how a specific skill you have could benefit that aspect.

3) Do develop networking skills
In other words, talk to as many people in your field as possible, keep your professional online profiles up-to-date, and keep in contact with any former colleague or manager who could later serve as a reference. As Charles Purdy notes, you should "be smart about networking and your online profile — looking for a job isn't just about searching online and pressing that 'apply' button. After that, you've got to do some research and work your network to find an 'in' at the company." Whatever you do, don't burn bridges with any personal or professional contacts — you'll be exposed to more opportunities and potential success.

4) Do treat your job search as a full-time job itself
Candace Williams puts it simply: "Hustle. Finding a job is a full-time job. If someone were to ask you, 'What did you do to find a job this week?' you should have a long answer that includes time sending résumés/cover letters, networking events, cold calls, informational interviews, research, and time crafting your portfolio/interview materials." It's not always easy, but your hard work will eventually pay off, and you'll definitely thank yourself later for putting in all those hours that led to your success.

5) Do your research
Landing an interview during your grueling job search is an amazing feeling — but the work doesn't stop there. Well before your interview, you should start preparing as many notes as possible about the company and the interviewer you'll be meeting. "In order to be well prepared for an interview, make sure you know the ins and outs of your company first. Look at the company website, research their clients, and check out their social media presence — anything to ensure you're fully versed on the position and the company. That way, you can answer each question thoroughly, and more importantly, tie your answers into the goals of the company," says Josh Tolan.

All activities in NYSC Orientation Camp last only for 21 days; afterwards, corps members would be posted to Place of Primary Assignment (PPA).
Below are the order of arrangements of things corps members need to do when their camping come to an end.
This is if you are not relocated. but if you relocate this will still come to help

Step 1
Report to your PPA:
You will be handed a posting letter the day camp will close by your platoon officer. The first thing to do immediately after leaving orientation camp is to report at your PPA.
Don't worry, there will be free buses in camp to take you to the local government where your PPA is under. In the local government, old corps members will welcome you. You can sleep over in the corpers lodge located within the vicinity of the local government, then in the morning the following day, you will have to report to your PPA.
What you will be taking to your PPA is the posting letter that was given to you on camp after the passing out parade (camp POP) on the last day of the camp. The essence of taking your letter to your PPA is to determine whether they will accept or reject you.
The posting letter is a letter addressed to your employer, and a detachable form is underneath.
Advise: make a photocopy of your posting letter before submitting.
At your PPA, the person in charge of corps member will either accept or reject you.
In the detachable form, the PPA will either write YES or NO and stamp it.
For example, if your PPA is a school, the principal of the school will stamp the detachable part of the form and write YES/NO in the acceptance Column.
If he write YES, that means you can continue your steps further, but if he rejects you, read on how to take a new posting letter when you are rejected

Step 2
Submit your letter of acceptance to your Zonal Office or Local Inspector office as the case maybe:
once you are accepted in your Place of Primary Assignment (PPA), the form will be detached and you will be given the end part of the form and your PPA will keep the other part, you take the part given to you to the Zonal Office and submit. Depending on how far your PPA is to the Zonal Office, if it is very far, a local inspector will be attached to your area who will collect the form from you and record it in a register as you bring your slip.

Step 3
Open a Bank Account
Immediately you bring your acceptance letter and you fill the register, the Local Inspector / the person attending to you at the Zonal Office assign you to a bank. Go to the bank immediately with 3 passport photograph and your NYSC ID Card lest I forget. For the next 1 year, you must always carry your ID card along anywhere you are going to. Your ID card will open doors for you (depending on how you utilize it)

Step 4
Go back to the Zonal office/LI’s office to fill in your bank details
Do you know why I’ve been patiently listing all this into steps, its because so many corps members are eager to travel back home, so they will just open the bank account and travel home, and will now come back to complain they have not been paid. The reason is because they did not fill the account register before they travel. So‎ once you are through with your account opening, you will be issued a bank account number, endeavor to take this account number back to the Zonal Office and fill in the account register book.
In the account register book, you fill in your account number, bank and your signature. Your signature must be the same as the specimen you gave while on camp.

Step 5
Enjoy your 2 weeks leave (depending on you PPA)
Once you have finished steps 1-4 and you are sure, you can now travel, go for a training, read book for the next two weeks depending on your PPA. If your PPA is a school, most times they are either already on holiday period or about to start. So enjoy the holiday with them. But if your PPA is a private firm, ministry and other parastatals, your leave will be dictated by them, so please adhere to it.

In summary, the steps to take are

  1. Report to your Place of Primary Assignment (PPA)
  2. Submit your letter of acceptance to your Zonal Office or Local Inspector office as the case maybe
  3. Open a bank account
  4. Fill in your bank account number in the account register at the Zonal Office/Local Inspector
  5. Enjoy your 2 weeks leave (depending on you PPA).

I hope you have found this article helpful. Please give a thumb up, share to your corper friends and create your topics as it will help some people to reduce their stress of settling down after camp.

The NYSC DG Brigadier General Shuaibu Ibrahim, Tour train move on to

Where he gave advice, check out on the facilities. His message and Orientation is of use to every Corp Members, as this will remind us of our service to our fatherland



Corps Members have been warned to dress properly as responsible role models that is worthy of emulation by the society.

NYSC Director-General, Brigadier General Shuaibu Ibrahim gave this warning today in his address to Corps Members at Kogi State Orientation Camp in Kabba.
He said NYSC Scheme would not condone improper dressing with its uniforms adding that all Corps Members must adhere strictly to the approved dress code for all events.

The NYSC boss however added that strict disciplinary measures would be applied on any erring Corps Member.

Speaking further, lbrahim appealed to the Corps Members to use the social media for the promotion of national unity and refrain from spreading unverified information and 'hate speeches'.

He urged them to be patriotic and contribute their quota to the corporate existence of the country.

The NYSC Chief Executive tasked the Corps Members to maximize the opportunities of the service year to cultivate team spirit, integration and unity of purpose.

'NYSC has a lot of potentials and opportunities, take advantage of the Orientation Exercise and promote love and unity, though in tongue we differ but in brotherhood we are the same'.

'Wherever you are, keep your records clean and don't let your actions today affect you in future', he said.

Ibrahim admonished them to integrate themselves into their host community and embark on projects that would affect their lives positively.

'You must be security conscious wherever you are because your lives are precious to us and we don't want you to go back to your parents incapacitated'.

'Be agents of positive change, shun every form of criminality, cyber crimes, drug peddling, cultism and others', he added.

The DG urged them to accept their posting in good faith but warned against lobbying for posting and induced rejection saying there is purpose for everything in life.

The Director-General also appealed to the Corps Members that would be participating as ad-hoc electoral officers during the forthcoming gubernatorial election in the state to abide by the electoral law.

Together we are better informed


In regression analysis, you'd like your regression model to have significant variables and to produce a high R-squared value. This low P value / high R2 combination indicates that changes in the predictors are related to changes in the response variable and that your model explains a lot of the response variability.

This combination seems to go together naturally. But what if your regression model has significant variables but explains little of the variability? It has low P values and a low R-squared.

At first glance, this combination doesn’t make sense. Are the significant predictors still meaningful?

It’s difficult to understand the situation of regression using numbers alone. Research shows that graphs are essential to correctly interpret regression analysis results. Comprehension is easier when you can see what is happening!

Further, if you enter the same value for Input into both equations, you’ll calculate nearly equivalent predicted values for Output. For instance, an Input of 10 yields a predicted Output of 66.2 for one model and 64.8 for the other model.
The variability of the data around the two regression lines is drastically different. R2 and S (standard error of the regression) numerically describe this variability.

A low R-squared graph shows that even noisy, high-variability data can have a significant trend. The trend indicates that the predictor variable still provides information about the response even though data points fall further from the regression line.

To assess the precision, we’ll examine the prediction interval. A prediction interval is a range that is likely to contain the response value of a single new observation given specified settings of the predictors in your model. Narrower intervals indicate more precise predictions.

The model with the high variability data produces a prediction interval that extends from about -500 to 630, over 1100 units! Meanwhile, the low variability model has a prediction interval from -30 to 160, about 200 units. Clearly, the predictions are much more precise from the high R-squared model, even though the fitted values are nearly the same!

The difference in precision should make sense after seeing the variability present in the actual data. When the data points are spread out further, the predictions must reflect that added uncertainty.

The coefficients estimate the trends while R-squared represents the scatter around the regression line.
The interpretations of the significant variables are the same for both high and low R-squared models.
Low R-squared values are problematic when you need precise predictions.
So, what’s to be done if you have significant predictors but a low R-squared value? I can hear some of you saying, "add more variables to the model!"

In some cases, it’s possible that additional predictors can increase the true explanatory power of the model. However, in other cases, the data contain an inherently higher amount of unexplainable variability. For example, many psychology studies have R-squared values are less that 50% because people are fairly unpredictable.

The good news is that even when R-squared is low, low P values still indicate a real relationship between the significant predictors and the response variable.


Anti-corruption Strategies for Balanced Development: A Case Study of Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC)


This paper synthesizes the assessment of anti-corruption strategies adopted by previous administrations in Nigeria and the effectiveness of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC). Factors militating against the effectiveness of EFCC were identified, and solutions proffered. Corruption in education was also noted. The administration of some heads of state before the establishment of EFCC was discovered to fuel corruption, while some administrations proved to have adopted Gandhian approach to fighting corruption; they recorded success but were not sustained because their efforts were found to have been frustrated by their succeeding administrations. The results of the frustrations lead to the establishment of EFCC which is an institution to tackle corruption during democracy. Finally, it was revealed that the achievement of EFCC's mandates is low. Towards anti-corruption strategies and the effectiveness of EFCC, recommendations were suggested. It is believed that if the recommendations were fully implemented, balanced development is inevitable.
