After online registration for National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) program, next is to wait for your posting letter (also known as Call-up letter). In this article, we will show you how to check your NYSC posting – checking posting means to know which State that NYSC deployed you for Service.
Recall that during online registration, NYSC allows Prospective Corps members to select four (4) states of their choice. From the list of the selected States, they would be posted at random.
For example; if you choose States like Abuja, Lagos, Kano and Abia. NYSC will post you to Abuja or Lagos or Kano or Abia for your National service. However, it’s not a must that you must be posted to any of the four (4) chosen States.
This means you can choose Abuja, Lagos, Ogun and Anambra, and you will be posted to a less competing State like Adamawa, though it’s rare. We know a friend who did not choose Abia State during her registration but she was posted to Abia for her service.
Believe me you, if you don’t choose high competing States like Abuja and Lagos, you will never be posted there unless you sort your posting.
Even many that selected Lagos and Abuja have a very slim chance to get those states because they are highly competitive.
Now, talking about working your posting to desired State, please do not give anyone money that you cannot afford to lose.
Don’t be desperate about working your NYSC posting, because scammers will capitalize on that. Kindly note that 95% of those asking you to pay for NYSC direct posting or redeployment are nothing but fraudsters. We repeat, 95% of them are yahoo boys, be warned!
