See Four Offences That Will Kick You Out Of National Youth Service Corps, NYSC
Being given extension in NYSC doesn’t mean it would be in your certificate, no. NYSC will only withhold your certificate till you finish serving your extension. Extension can be one week, two weeks, one month and up to three months.
Here are bad things that can give you extension, or even exit out of the NYSC scheme.
1. Disobedience in Camp: When you get to camp, the NYSC rules and regulations, By-laws will be given to you, so any disobedience to it can lead you out of the camp immediately. Or sometimes they will wait till your passing out day before giving you an extension for the offence.
2. Wrong influencing of your Place of primary assignment (PPA) posting: This has actually giving too many people extensions. Your last day in camp you will be given your posting letter to your PPA. But some people will chose to stay back in camp when they don’t like where they were posted to, or even go to their state secretariats to work things out to be posted to a better place. This gives rooms for them to be preyed upon, money will be extorted from them by some dubious NYSC staffs promising to help them. But when the thing will backfire, NYSC will discover it then hit you with an extension. About 5 of my friends from the recently passed out 2015 batch A corp members received an extension because of this. They were posted to a place they didn’t like. They tried working it out and a fake way. NYSC discovered it and reposted them back to their original location. On their passing out day, they hit each and every one of them with a maximum of two weeks extension. Note, if you have a viable and good reason to relocate, redeploy or influence your posting, NYSC will not hesitate to do that for you provided its genuine.
3. Missing Head count: Missing head count can give you an extension of service in NYSC. Anytime you are called upon for head count, please make sure you are there because if not, that one go be extension. The Devil will be dancing skelewu on your head. So many people had been given an extension for missing head count.
4. Gross misconduct: I had to embed some offences into this. As a corper, the NYSC uniform opens way for you in some cases. But you will be warned that you are not to wear the uniform to some occasions or events. Failure to heed to it will be extension. Another instance is rape, and also sleeping with your female students and getting them pregnant. This might even give you an exit from NYSC.
