What To Do After NYSC Relocation

What to do after NYSC relocation is probably what you want to know now as you have successfully processed your NYSC relocation. In your NYSC-Call up letter, the NYSC Management sent you to Adamawa state and then during the orientation camp, you applied for relocation and redeployment and yes, it worked. The NYSC officials relocate you back to Lagos. Then the question is now what next. See also: NYSC Redeployment Letter Sample – Pictures

What To Do After NYSC Relocation

The next thing to do after NYSC relocation is to go to your new state and tender your relocation letter to them. They will then give you a Place of Primary Assignment or ask you to find one by yourself.


Don’t mind me, I love examples, just to make you understand fully. Lola checked her call-up letter and found Plateau state. She cannot serve for 11 months in Plateau state due to some reasons that are known to her, so she is planning to redeploy to Lagos during orientation camp. She took the redeployment form and it worked. The NYSC official just relocates her to Lagos. The question you are asking now is what is the next thing Lola will do after NYSC relocation.

Just as I said above, Lola will travel to Lagos and go straight to Lagos NYSC secretariat to show the LI and officials her relocation letter. The LI will then give her a PPA in Lagos or ask her to find one.

To answer your question of what is next, you will go directly to your new state for documentation. You have no business with the original state again.

I hope my answer is clear and you get it. If you need anything else, feel free to ask me below. Am always here.

  1. I apply for relocation in Kaduna back to Anambra and that is it, i have not done anything again since then. what should i do now? please Lola .

  2. I don’t know about relocation letter but we were told to print our PPA letter online to know where we are posted.

  3. Hello lola. Please I relocated from edo state to Lagos state and I got approved . Based on the fact that I am heavily pregnant and I am due to put to bed on the 10th of December . Now I had to leave the country in the 28th of November to have my baby abroad because of health issues and my return date is for 6th January that when it would be okay for us to fly back . What do I do. As in the relocation letter I’m seeing I have to report within 21 days . I haven’t even put to bed yet and Iv been on the hospital bed . What can I do .

    • Your own case is different. The 21 days might not be applicable to you but you will have to inform them at the NYSC Local govt secretariat first. Go to your Local Government and discuss with your LI. You will be given a permission.

  6. Hi Lola please how long does it take for online redeployment to be approved after three month of leaving camp and please can I apply before the three months?

  7. Congratulations!!! Your Application has been approved.
    However, to Print your Relocation letter, You are to get clearance from your State Cordinator.
    The question now is, which of the state coordinators? The original state or that of the new?

    Hello good evening…Once you are relocated to another state must you report there immediately or there is a time range of when to report.

    • It’s better you report immediately and do you documentation to avoid stress of getting a PPA

    • We left camp 16 April on Tuesday and relocated to another State, I read on the relocation approval letter that I’ve been relocated to bayelsa state with effect from 9th April and we were still in camp this period we only know our relocation status the very day we left camp which is on the 16th April and I’ve 21 days to report to the state and failure attract sanctions, my question is, is NYSC counting the 21days since on the 9th we’re still in camp or counting it after 16th the very day we left camp?

    • Hello Lola

      I called in sick at the camp at Edo state and the doctor recommended I should be relocated to lagos immediately. I filled the relocation form and the state coordinator wrote “instant relocation recommended” I was given an exeat form to go to Lagos and asked to report at the secretariat on the 9th of July. Am I supposed to report with the form at Lagos or I still have to go back to Edo state?. I have filled the Book of life at Edo state and also filled the certificate forms. Your reply would be appreciated.

      • Report to Lagos secretariat by 9th of July. You have no business with Edo again.

        • Thanks for your response Lola. So I just take the exeat form and the temporary I’d card I was given to lagos camp on the 9th of July or is there anything else I have to go with?

          • Secretariat is where you will go not the camp.

          • I’m sorry Lola, but this is the last one, I promise. I heard people saying the relocation might be rejected. But I think mine shouldn’t be since I didn’t exactly apply, I didn’t write a letter even, it was the doctor’s letter that is in my file where he recommended I be relocated back to lagos. Is it possible for it to be rejected even when the camp doctor recommends I be redeployed to lagos?. Also, how would my state change to lagos on the portal? Is it after I take the exeat form to lagos secretariat on the 9th?

          • It cannot be rejected dearie.

          • Thank you very much Lola.
            Is it the exeat form and the temporary I’d card I was given that I’d take to lagos secretariat or therez another document I have to get. Also when would my state change on the portal, before July 9th or after. Thanks

          • You will print redeployment letter from your dashboard

Hello Lola, I went to the Secretariat today as I notice my state code changes to summit my letter of acceptance but getting there the man in charge of the file address me to the state coordinator said my posting will be pending till she approve my letter and after two weeks time is yet approve I shouldn’t come and beg for posting and this is my fear, I already summit my letter to the state coordinator today.
