My NYSC Orientation Finishes: How do I sort out things?

My NYSC Orientation Finishes: How do I sort out things? The question is, as My NYSC Orientation Finishes, how do I sort out things? This question facing many corps members is begging for answers. And that is what this post is all about. If you are one of those corpers, here are the solutions to your questions.

As My NYSC Orientation Finishes – What next?

This is a reality question. Yes! As your NYSC Orientation Finishes – What next? Professionalmarks.com requires you to pay attention from here. So, after your NYSC orientation camp, the next step is for you to collect your posting letter from your platoon officer. This posting letter will tell you where you have been posted to for your national assignment.

A lot of things happens after this orientation period. In fact, many would like to travel back home while others go to their places of primary assignment. And some others may just be stranded. Why? That is why we advise you don’t travel after NYSC camp unless you have been relocated to other state.

Now, here are the things to do and next steps to take after NYSC orientation camp

Report to your PPA

Note that the first thing to do after NYSC camp is to go to your Place of Primary Assignment (PPA). However, if you get relocation while in camp, then you have to locate the NYSC state secretariat in the new state of your reallocation for documentations.

We advise that if you don’t meet up to report in your PPA early enough in the day, you can lodge in any nearby corpers’ lodge or any religious body corpers lodge. That will enable you report the following day in the early hours.

We had hinted above that you you have to ensure you collected your posting letter from your camp platoon officer before leaving NYSC camp. This is because you need to report to your PPA with the posting letter. Note also that your PPA will either accept or reject you. In this case, if you are reject or accept, it will be noted on the detachable part of the letter.

At this time, whether you accept or reject, take the document from the employer to your Local Government Inspector (LGI). The contact is on your posting letter. And, now make one photocopy of your posting letter before taking it to your PPA. This is because for instance, if your PPA is a secondary school, the principal of the school will stamp the detachable part of your posting letter, and write either “Accepted” or “Rejected”. The point is, whether you are accepted or rejected, take the detachable part of the form to your LGI’s office for documentation.

Reporting to your LGI Office:

In fact, this is the second step to take. So, after reporting to your PPA, you will be given a letter that shows whether you are accepted or rejected. Then you go forward from there to your NYSC zonal office or the office of LGI depending on the distance between the zonal office and the LGI office. This move is important because If you are rejected in your PPA, you do not need to proceed to step 3 until you get another PPA. At this point, your LGI or Zonal Inspector will repost you to another PPA or you find one for yourself.
