The attention of NYSC Management has been drawn to a story with the above caption, making the rounds on social media. The write-up is a misrepresentation of facts.

In a statement issued by the NYSC’s Deputy Director of Press and Public Relations Emeka Mgbemena on Sunday in Abuja said the report is misrepresentation of facts.

According to the statement, in accordance with the Relocation Policy of the Scheme, the exercise is carried out based on two grounds, namely; Marital and Health grounds.

Relocation on the ground of marriage is applicable only to female Corps Members. On the ground of health, the Corps Member’s medical history must be presented, with a written application.

It is imperative to state that in NYSC, all lives matter, just like the Director-General has emphasised on so many fora. The safety and well-being of Corps Members and members of staff remains of paramount importance to the Corps.
