Acceptable Reasons For NYSC Redeployment


If NYSC post you to a state you do not want to go, you can request for a change of state or redeployment or relocation.
However, NYSC does not grant redeployment to everyone that seeks for it except if the reason is reasonable, otherwise everybody would probably be serving in his or her state of origin or atleast in his most preferred State; and that would conquer the aim by which the scheme was created.

Therefore, before you could get your redeployment request approved by NYSC you must atleast satisfy one of the acceptable reasons for redeployment. NYSC has made it in such a way that Prospective Corps Members (PCMs) can apply for redeployment, but their applications can only be granted if based on the NYSC acceptable reasons for redeployment.

Below we shall be looking at those reasons that NYSC consider appropriate for redeployment.

1. Marital grounds

This is only for married female corps members who want to be redeployed to state where their husbands reside. Corps member who finds herself in such situation should apply in writing after the swearing-in Ceremony stating why she wants to be relocated. The application letter should be addressed to the Director-General through the State Coordinator. Since you are applying on marital ground, you are to attach the following:


  • A valid marriage certificate;
  • A document showing change of name in any Newspapers publications; 
  • Affidavit obtain from a Court;
  • A letter from your husband's workplace which will serve as an evidence that your husband is domiciled in the state you want to relocate to;
  • Wedding Pictures.
  • A hand written application letter[SEE SAMPLE].

2. Health/Medical grounds

This reason are for those who have extreme or reoccurring illnesses which require to be monitored closely. To facilitate this, a medical report from your institution’s medical centre or from a recognized hospital. Please note that claims on health grounds will be subjected to cross examination and confirmation to establish its authenticity.
A hand written application letter needs to be attached [SEE SAMPLE].

3. Security grounds

Some states in Nigeria are facing security challanges posed by Boko Haram terrorists and Fulani terrorists or herdsmen amongst others. Most affected states are: Borno, Adamawa, Gombe, Yobe, Benue, Kaduna and many other states, most especially in Northern region. So, because of this security challenges, those posted to any of these states can apply for redeployment on security ground, and his/her application would be granted by NYSC.
You also need to write an application for this [SEE SAMPLE]

The reasons above are the only NYSC acceptable reasons for redeployment.
