NYSC Guidelines on Relocation of Corps Members to Good PPA
National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) Guidelines on Relocation of Corps Members (PCM's) to Good Places of Primary Assignment (PPA) Nationwide.

The attention of the Management of National Youth Service Corps has been drawn to a message purported to have come from NYSC, advertising good places of primary assignment to Corps members.

In view of the above the Scheme has deemed it fit to inform the general public and all Prospective Corps Members (PCM's) on the Guidelines on Relocation of Corps Members to Good Place of Primary Assignment (PPA) or PPA of choice.

NYSC Relocation of Corps Members to Good PPA Guidelines

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 wishes you a resounding success as you proceed to render selfless service to the Nation.

5. Once again, Management wishes the Corps Members a hitch-free Orientation Exercise.


The attention of Management has been drawn to a social media account, purported to be NYSC official account, requesting unsuspecting Corps Members and Prospective Corps Members to contact the promoters for the under-listed services:


Please, all NYSC stakeholders should note that the said account is FAKE, as NYSC shall never advertise, or indulge in such illegality.

The fraudsters copied some stories from the authentic social media platforms of the Scheme in order to make the fake account have semblance of genuineness.

Management wishes to state that concessional deployment and relocation are granted based on the Deployment and Relocation policies of the Scheme, with requests treated on individual merit.

NYSC does not charge fees for services rendered to either prospective or serving Corps Member.

The general public, especially Corps Members and prospective ones are hereby strongly advised to guard against falling prey to the antics of the fraudsters.

Please, be well guided.
