NYSC announces that married corp members can be redeployed to husband’s state 



The National Youth Service Corps(NYSC) has announced that married female prospective corps members who are posted to states other than the one their husbands reside in can  request redeployment.

The announcement was made by the scheme on Monday, April 24th, via its Twitter handle.

Until eligible participants of the scheme are sworn in in the various camps they are deployed to, they are referred to as PMCs.

Once sworn in, they become “corps members” and they spend a total of 21 days on camp, starting from the day of deployment.

The scheme, in a tweet titled, ‘ATTENTION ALL 2023 BATCH ‘A’ STREAM 2 MARRIED FEMALE PCMs’ said, “All married female Prospective Corps members (PCMs) who are deployed to states where their husbands are not domiciled should report to the nearest NYSC Orientation Camp for their State of Deployment to be changed.

“They are to report during the period of registration at the Orientation Camps with copies of their marital and other relevant documents as evidence.”

Part of the Scheme’s eligibility is that a graduate must be below or not above the age of 30 years upon graduation. A graduate who graduated before 30 years but skipped the service year, will still be eligible since his certificate of graduation was dated before he clocked 30 years of age.

However, those above 30 years get a Certificate of Exemption – an equivalent to the NYSC Discharge Certificate.

On completion of the service year, successfully Corps members are issued a certificate of participating in the scheme satisfactorily.
