NYSC During-Orientation Offences and Punishments


For every offence, they say, there must be equal punishment. The case of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) is never an exemption.


As a prospective corps member, it's your duty to know, be forearmed, to find out, the punishments, fines or sanctions waiting for you if you do something wrong during the service year.


However, in this post, caution is taken to only open your eyes to usual offences on orientation camp and the punishments the corps has set aside if you fall into any of those traps.


Side Note: It's important to know that the compilation of the on-camp offences and punishments below is not only from my experience but also directly in accordance with the NYSC Bye-Law.

The following offences during the camping and their punishments should be noted.
