NYSC monthly clearance is usually done in the first week of every month at the of office of Local Government Inspector (LGI).

The process begins by getting a clearance letter from the head of your PPA, and the letter is submitted to your NYSC LGI. If the NYSC LGI is satisfied, he/she will grant you access to biometric thumbprint.

After thumb printing, your data will be sent to the NYSC ICT department at Abuja headquarters for recording.

The ICT department will mark “Present” or “Absence” for you as the case maybe.

‘Present’ you have been cleared for that month, while ‘Absent’ shows you have not.
