The NYSC director, press and public relations, Adenike Adeyemi disclosed during a press conference on 2021 Batch C Stream 1 Orientation Course which begins on Wednesday 20th October.
The organization, announced that from now onward, all married pregnant and nursing Prospective Corps Member who are deployed in a state other than where their husband state of residence will no longer go to their State of deployment but could proceed with their In-camp registration at the Orientation Camps of their husbands’ State of residence for proper registration before the commencement of camp activities.
As a requirement, it was mandated that each prospective Corps member would present evidence of marriage, husbands’ identity and evidence of husband place of domicile in addition to other documents as stated on the call-up letter.
During the press conference, it was also gathered that the NYSC had made necessary arrangements to ensure that all Corps Members deployed to Anambra State will be safe in respect to the upcoming Anambra State governorship election scheduled for November 6 2021.
Though NYSC cannot discuss the protection of corps members to be deployed for the Anambra State governorship election; it is a security matter. As it has always been, the protection of corps members this year as they go to orientation camps, while undergoing the one year service and community development service, is important.
“The synergy between the NYSC and security agencies is always ongoing and quite effective to take care of corps members during their orientation, during the service year and also on election duties; you know that NYSC and INEC interface regularly before, during and after any election.
