In a statement by NYSC Press and Public Relations Officer, Emeka Mgbemena, who also doubles as the Deputy Director of the Service, married female corps members should ignore the states of deployment indicated on their call-up letters; and stick to the recent instruction of which they are to report at the orientation camp in their husbands’ state of residence with valid marriage certificates, evidence of change of name in a national newspaper and other necessary documents uploaded online during their registration for service.
According to NYSC, the policy was initiated to enable prospective married corp members have a hitch free service year.
