Every corp member has the right to request redeployment/relocation if there is a genuine reason to do so. The three most important reasons NYSC will consider are explained below:
1. Health: This is for people that are suffering from sicknesses that require close monitoring. A medical report from a recognized medical center will be required from you and your health claims will be verified for authenticity
2. Security: Some states in Nigeria, especially those with religious and terrorist unrest may be dangerous places for corp members. This is a valid reason for relocation.
3. Marital Reasons: This applies to females who want to serve where their husbands are located.
A corps member who finds herself in such situation should apply in writing after the swearing-in Ceremony stating why he/she wants to be relocated. The application letter should be addressed to the Director-General through the State Coordinator. Make sure to attach the following documents to your application
a. A document showing change of name in any of the National Newspapers and Affidavit
b. 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.
