The management of the National Youth Corps (NYSC) in Nigeria has directed that all married, pregnant and nursing mothers should be deployed to their respective husband’s states of residence to participate in the mandatory orientation course.
This is coming after some individuals in the category listed by the scheme notified the scheme that they had been posted outside states where their spouse were domiciled, contrary to the NYSC laws.
NYSC has now given this category of women the liberty to report at any state comfortable for them for their orientation course.
The agency however stressed that they must present for registration, in addition to other relevant documents as follows;
1, Evidence of marriage.
2, Identity of husband.
3, Evidence of husband’s place of domicile.
The youth scheme added that it cherishes and strongly upholds the institution of marriage, while it urged all those concerned to take note of the new policy.
