NYSC Relocation After 3 Months Full Details

NYSC relocation after 3 months is a system made available by the National Youths Service Corps management to allow Corps Members to apply for NYSC relocation after 3 months in their current Place of Primary Assignment. This is also an article for everyone searching for NYSC relocation after camp.

Before things were made, Corps Members were only given the chance to redeploy from a state only during orientation camps. Once the NYSC orientation camp ends, there is no chance for you to redeploy no matter what. However, not long ago, the NYSC management decided to extend NYSC relocation till after 3 months. Meaning if you did not apply redeployment either in camp or online, and you are already working at your PPA. You can still apply for relocation after 3 months.

Let me use an example to explain in details the meaning of NYSC relocation after 3 months. I am Lola, I checked my Call-up letter and I found Plateau state as my deployment state. My original intention was never to redeploy from Plateau. So during Orientation camp as friends and Corps Members are processing their NYSC redeployment, I was processing my stomach with Sharwama at Mammy Market. After orientation Camp, I went to my PPA and was doing fine.

After 2 months, I discovered that Plateau is not really a safe place as we are hearing rumors of Herdsmen and other crises. For the fact that I did not apply for redeployment during Camp does not mean after spending 2 and a half months in Plateau I cannot redeploy.

If I want to leave Plateau, after spending less than 3 months in the state, I can still apply for redeployment.
