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 NYSC Management has been drawn to adverts and notices making rounds in the social media requesting for payments from the unsuspecting public regarding deployment, posting and relocation of Corps Members.

NYSC wishes to state categorically that all services including deployment, posting, relocation and provision of kit items like NYSC uniforms among other services, to Corps Members while in camp are free and do not attract any fee.

Management hereby warns Members of the public especially Corps Members and Prospective Corps Members to beware of impostors that may wish to defraud them in the name of NYSC services.

Kindly visit all authentic NYSC Social Media Platforms (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, Registration portal, website and telegram) for up-to-date information on our activities and programme.

The NYSC Director General, Brigadier General Muhammad Kaku Fadah wishes all Prospective Corps Members safe journey to their respective Orientation Camps as the Scheme commences the 2022 Batch 'C' Stream One Orientation Course.

Thank you.
