The National Youth Service Corps has requested that married female prospective corps members stationed in states other than the one where their spouses live request redeployment.
The scam revealed this on Monday via its Twitter handle.
Until eligible program members are sworn in at the various camps to which they are assigned, they are referred to as PMCs.
They become “corps members” after being sworn in and spend a total of 21 days in camp beginning on 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.”
NYSC is a scheme founded by the Nigerian government on May 22, 1973, during the military dictatorship, to integrate Nigerian graduates in nation-building and development of the country.
It was established based on decree No. 24 which stated that the scheme was created “with a view to the proper encouragement and development of common ties among the youths of Nigeria and the promotion of national unity”
A graduate must be under or over the age of 30 when they graduate to be eligible for the Scheme. A graduate who graduated before the age of 30 but skipped the service year is still qualified because his certificate of graduation was issued before the age of 30.
Those over 30 years old, on the other hand, receive a Certificate of Exemption, which is equivalent to the NYSC Discharge Certificate.
Successful Corps members are awarded a certificate of participation in the scheme at the end of the service year.
