Now You need To Understand a few things about NYSC redeployment.
Redeploying has become one major topic on the lip of corp members especially those posted to the Northern part of The country Nigeria.
Reasons Why Corp Members Seek For Redeployment
1. Insecurity:- Corp members from other geopolitical zones feel insecure serving in the northern part of the country and for this alone, a good number of them want to make sure they’re never deployed there and if eventually they’re posted there, they want to be redeployed to any other zone other than the northern part of Nigeria.

3. Marriage:- Mostly for female corp members. Redeployment on marriage ground is always honored no matter what. She has to go back home to her husband in order to continue her duties as a mom and wife and so no National service can object to this.
