There are some important actions you need to take at this moment and this is very important as the consequence might result to you being sent out of the Orientation camp.
NYSC is under the Military force and the discipline and strictness is on another level.
During batch A stream I, some Corps members were posted but they refused to go to camp based on one thing or the other. See also:[NYSC Batch B 2021 News Updates – Latest Updates]
The NYSC management then announced that if you did not go with your stream, you will have to wait till next year same batch and same stream. We all thought it was a joke until they did not allow them to follow stream II. We are all hoping they will join this batch B.
The way NYSC is strict right now, you cannot beg them in camp, even if you cry, they will say you were told.
In other to prevent the “You were told” phrase, I’m making this mandatory official compilation of actions you need to take right now so as to prevent you from being sent out of camp.
Most PCM are so much anticipating for call up letter and going to camp and this might make them miss some important details.
The first action to take right now is to check your passport on the NYSC Portal. Some passports are being rejected and if you don’t upload another one, you won’t be allowed in camp.
Right now, Click Here to go to the NYSC Portal and confirm your passport is not being rejected.
If it’s rejected, you will see a message under the passport asking you to upload another one. Kindly upload another one if the message is there.
However, if it’s not rejected, you will not see any message. Then you can proceed to the next action. Please kindly check right now. See also: [55 Things NYSC Members Should Not Leave Home Without]
