One of the innovation established by the new NYSC administration is the option to choose preferred State for deployment.

A prospective NYSC Corps Member is expected to choose 4(four) prefered states to deployment in the scheme. Though there are no guarantees of postings to preferred State. In some instances, it works as intended.

Here is a guide to aid your choice of preference based on geo-political zones in Nigeria. From the 6(six) geo-political zones in Nigeria, a prospective Corps Member is allowed to choose one state each.

Below are the six geo-political zones with their member states

  1. North Central (Nigeria): loosely known as Middle Belt; includes Benue State, Kogi State, Kwara State, Nasarawa State, Niger State, Federal Capital Territory and Plateau State
  2. North East (Nigeria): Adamawa State, Bauchi State, Borno State, Gombe State, Taraba State and Yobe State
  3. North West (Nigeria): Jigawa State, Kaduna State, Kano State, Katsina State, Kebbi State, Sokoto State and Zamfara State
