Relocation and redeployment of corp members is a thing that is open to any corp member that is willing to take it.
NYSC has made it in such a way that if any prospective corp member has genuine reasons why he/she should not serve in the state they have been posted to, such corper has the right to request for a change of state. And that’s exactly what is called “NYSC Redeployment/Relocation”. But mind you, such reasons must be genuine and reasonable.
The original intention for the creation of NYSC is that youths may move out entirely from their cultural environment to mix with people of other cultural heritage. But youths of today wants to serve in their own desired state.
Therefore they are now found of forming different lies and assumptions. Because of this, NYSC had made redeployment possible only on 3 conditions:
Medical Ground :
If as a corp member, you are having medical problem that could pose a threat to your life in the environment you have been posted, you have the right to apply for redeployment based on medical ground. But the medical issues must be a reasonable and to some extent, life threatening before your application can be considered. “You can not say you don’t want to be posted to the north because you do have menstrual pain”.
Nobody will listen to you. And mind you, you are still going to face an interview before approval of your application.
If the medical reason is genuine, all you will need to apply are:
Marital Ground :
This option is only available for married female corpers who are willing to be redeployed to the sate where their husband and family resides. Before you can be considered on marital ground, you must provide the following:
Security Ground :
Some states are presently facing serious security challenges. Therefore, NYSC had made a provision for any corp member who wants to be excluded from serving in such states. States like Borno, Yobe, Adamawa, Gombe and some of the northern states are really danger zones for corp members. Those states are presently not save for corp members to serve because of the Boko-haram insurgency. Any corper serving there are doing so at their own risk.
The only requirement to apply for relocation in such case is filling the relocation form. If you refuse to fill the relocation form when others are doing so, you will definitely not be relocated; you will have to serve in the state.
How To Apply
For you to be considered for relocation, you must have filled and submitted the relocation form and attach the required documents to it. This form will be given to any interested corp member that requested for it (that is some days after everyone are through with their registrations). It will be announced anyway. So you have to be attentive and alert to know when it will be available for collection. Because if you fail to fill the form, then relocation is a “NO” for you.
Below are samples of the relocation form you are going to be given and samples of the hand-written application you are to attach to it.
