NYSC Portal PPA Letter
On the last day in the orientation camp, corps members that didn’t apply for relocation will collect the NYSC PPA letter from their platoon leaders.
This letter will specify the particular company, school or firm to work in during the service year.
If you apply for relocation after camp, log into your portal online to check, download, and print out your letter.
When you get your posting letter, the first place to go to is your Place of Primary Assignment (PPA).
That is the place you will spend the whole of your service year immediately you leave camp.
Your place of assignment can be a secondary school, an industry, a university, and even a government office.
If you are identified with the fellowship in camp, you may first report at the temporary lodge they will provide.
Then you could report at your PPA later the same day or the following day.
When you leave the camp, home will be on your mind, having been used up in the camp life.
Few of your employers (i.e., where you are posted to) will send down vehicles to convey you from the camp to their workplaces; private and some Government higher education institutions do.
The fellowship too arranges for you at your cost.
Commercial transporters will probably be available at the gate too. Choose wisely.
You can also change your PPA if it does not satisfy you.
To get a good PPA of your choice, before heading for camp, meet with the company you have in mind and get a request letter (a letter from the company saying that they want you to work with them during your PPA) from them.
When you get to camp, submit the request letter to the authority and hope for the best.

Why is my NYSC PPA letter not showing on my dashboard?
Your NYSC PPA letter isn’t yet showing on your dashboard because of your phone poor network, the high traffic on the online portal due to the large number of corps members checking their posting letters, and late uploading from the state offices (especially for corps members that recently relocated).
So, exercise patience and check back online in the next 1 hour.
7 Vital Things to Know Before Accepting Your NYSC PPA
This is a warning to all new corp members who want to have peace of mind and enjoy the next 11 months of their NYSC service at their different Place of Primary Assignment (PPA).
So many people take advantage of corp members to achieve the end goal of their companies.
In order not to be used like slaves and cleaning rags by anybody, all in the name of serving your fatherland, you need to read this.
Here is something obvious and common among new corpers:
- They are always too eager to get to their PPA (Place of Primary Assignment) and get accepted so they could return home quickly.
Even though they complain of staying at home during the postponement and delay in the date for the camp.
Perhaps to show their new khaki to their parents or maybe to slay around the street.
You are not alone in that; I felt the same urge, too. Just like everybody else. It’s normal.
Note: Most PPA are good and can be so kind. And remember you will not be the first corper there.
But please, before you accept that PPA you are being posted to, note:
1. Don’t Be Anxious
Don’t be too eager to get or accept any PPA. There is always enough time.
Believe me, the waiting is worth it.
Don’t be too anxious and frustrated that you will jump on a marketing place where you have to be hawking and walking around to get people to buy a product or whatever. You are better than that.
Don’t be like many corp members, who in the name of frustration for a PPA quickly, accepted primary schools and ended up being treated like nannies, baby-sitting and cleaning the mess of kindergarten pupils.
2. Good Accommodation
I will not lie about this.
Most PPA do not have conducive accommodation for all the corp members posted under them because of facilities, too much crowd and others.
Some PPA might provide an accommodation and you might not like it for privacy or other reasons.
There might be many reasons you want to look for accommodation by yourself:
- Conducive part
…name it…… and more
3. Your Free Day Must Be Allowed
You have privilege to a day of every week, in which you are not expected to be at your PPA at all (usually your CDS day).
Your PPA must be ready to give you this day fully. Not expected to work for few hours on the same day.
It’s a work-free day for you. Your Boss might push you by asking, but you have to state it that CDS days are off.
4. Local Allowance
That’s the allowance (money) the PPA will pay you at the end of every month. That’s if it’s a private PPA.
This money should not be less than ₦5000, can be more, say ₦10k, ₦15k, ₦25k up to ₦100k.
Let them know you don’t like to be owed also because many employers are fond of that.
You don’t have to be rude about that.
You just have to make your point clear.
The ₦33,000 alone cannot be enough.
5. Work Load
Don’t let them overwork you.
You are not expected to teach over two subjects if you are in a school.
But sometimes, out of compassion, you can take more if you can handle it.
6. Do Your Research
Ask questions and gather information from the existing corpers and workers in the organization to know how the management has been dealing with their workers.
By this, you will tell if they will keep their promises to you or not.
7. Rules and Regulations
This might apply to every PPA, however, some PPA have some rules that you might not abide with.
This is common among mission schools and some organizations.
There are some places they will tell you that’s you can’t wear this, you can’t do this, a male should not come visit, this, that’s and bla bla bla….
Some organization will tell you to put on tight clothes, miniskirts to promote their product and bring customers.
If it’s okay with you, tell them and, if otherwise, tell them to reject you.
So, you might need to ask existing corpers stylishly if they have any funny rules here.
They will issue you an acceptance letter after all agreement and you will take the letter to your Zonal Inspector.
Then you can now go home and come back after the stipulated day.
Do not be too anxious. This is where you will spend the rest of your 11 months.
You are not meant to endure; you enjoy.
NYSC PPA Rules
The NYSC has a set of rules that corps members must follow during their Place of Primary Assignment (PPA).
These rules ensure the safety and security of corps members, as well as the smooth running of their PPAs.
Here are the NYSC rules on PPA:
- Corps members must report to their PPA on time and must attend all PPA activities.
- Corps members must wear their NYSC uniform at all times when they are on official NYSC duty.
- Corps members must be respectful of their PPA supervisors and of the people in their community.
- Corps members must not engage in any illegal activities while they are on PPA.
- Corps members must not leave their PPA without the permission of their PPA and NYSC officials.
- Corps members must complete their PPA projects in the allocated time frame.
- Corps members must maintain moral conduct throughout their PPA.
- Corps members may not change their PPA without the permission of the NYSC.
- Corps members may not engage in partisan politics.
- Corps members may not use drugs or alcohol while they are on PPA.
Corps members who violate the NYSC rules on PPA may be punished.
How to Change NYSC PPA After Being Accepted
You have gotten a Place of Primary Assignment and maybe you are even working already for over a month and you discover you would like to change your PPA.
Here are the steps to change your NYSC PPA after being accepted:
1. Polite Negotiation
This is when you have a polite negotiation with your PPA and make them see reasons you cannot work with them.
Provide reasonable excuses for them, because many PPA will not want to reject you.
It’s also easier to negotiate for rejection with public schools than with privates; because many public schools won’t provide all the required amenities needed for you, and you can use that as an advantage to be rejected.
2. Post the Complain to NYSC
Maybe the first did not work out.
Another way to make NYSC change your PPA is to complain to your Local Government Inspector when your PPA has refused to reject you.
You do that by writing a complaint letter to them about your PPA and request for a change.
You can mention poor accommodation provided by your current PPA or concerns about your safety and well-being as the reason for your request.
And if your reasons are good enough, you will be re-posted.
3. Visit NYSC Secretariat
To formally request a PPA change, visit the NYSC Secretariat or the State Coordinator’s office where you are currently serving.
Submit a written request stating your valid reasons for the PPA change, along with any supporting documents.
Ensure to follow the proper format and include all information.
You may be required to fill out a specific form or provide additional documents as per NYSC requirements.
4. Get Redeployment Approval Letter
If your request for a PPA change is approved, receive an official letter or notification from NYSC.
This will contain the new PPA location, the date of resumption, and any other instructions you need to follow.
Collect all documents, including your clearance letter from your current PPA, before resuming at your new PPA.
5. Report to New PPA
Once you have received approval for your PPA change, report to your new PPA on the specified date.
Follow all the protocols, meet with the officials, and complete any required paperwork.
Be professional and committed to your new assignment, just like you were in your previous PPA.
You can change your NYSC PPA after being accepted.
Here are the requirements for changing your PPA after being accepted:
- Have a valid reason for wanting to change your PPA. This could be because of health reasons, family reasons, or other personal reasons.
- Have the approval of your current PPA.
- Have the approval of NYSC.
If you meet these requirements, submit a request to change your PPA to NYSC.
The NYSC will review your request and decide.
NYSC may not approve your request to change your PPA, even if you meet all the requirements.
The NYSC may have limited PPAs available, or they may not accommodate your specific needs.
If your request to change your PPA is denied, serve at your current PPA.
You may reapply for a change of PPA after you have completed some months at your current PPA.
Accommodation at PPA
If you don’t know anybody in the place you are posted to, where will you shelter yourself on the first day?
The fellowship may give you a temporary accommodation pending the time you will have to get yours.
You could be lucky if your employer gives you a room.
Many of them don’t give corps members accommodation.
So, be prepared to get shelter at your cost.
