Thanks so much for your reply, but what heard is that it is compulsory one must be present every Thursday for CDS, also heard it involves thumbprinting, don't know how to go about this?

Hello Everyone,
I am a fresh graduate from a reputable Federal Polytechnic in Nigeria, I graduated in 2017 and I am supposed to go for youth service this year (2018 Batch A Corps) which will commence soon. But I have an issue bothering me which I need a good advice on.

Last year 2017 my sister who is in USA for close to 12 years wanted me to come and hustle abroad but it's not easy for youth to go there but through schooling, so she helped me to find a good public University to do Masters, I have done the necessary processing and I have been offered an admission for the Fall Semester starting August 2018, my Visa has also been granted.

The issue on ground now is that I want to have the NYSC certificate, probably if I can runs it as a ghost Corper and get the certificate on my behalf or if an exemption can be possible.

Please I need your sincere advice. Thanks.
madam, I think u don't have to Ghost. Ghosting Now is very, very hard due to d recent Thumb printing.
By the Grace of God, I'm a serving Corps member in Rivers State.
add me on whatsapp for more info.
This is my number 08034371156

Who told them to go home after graduation? I’m curious
they don't have a choice. Once they finish, they are given one year work permit if they are lucky. After that, unless they get married, they have to leave or turn to illegal immigrant.

Everyone is advising you to run abroad... Nice and good. But what will you do when you are asked to present your nysc certificate abroad.... Heard of a case where a PhD holder in America... .medical dr for that matter was deported because of this nysc certificate.... And besides how will you ghost this nysc with biometric capturing.... Maybe there is something I don't know. . Go abroad if you want, but don't register for the nysc with the mind of ghosting it.. What if something goes wrong.... You can always come back and do it when the certificate will be requested.. ... This is my two cents...
Nysc officials made u that story bro.....your NYSC certificate is useless abroad unless you are seeking for an employment here in Nigeria

I thought you were in the system, which is why I asked the question. You have just a slight idea of what you’re talking about but you’re missing a lot of critical aspects. The work permit (it’s called OPT btw) is for One year if they’re not in the STEM field, about three years if you’re in STEM. Gives plenty of time to get an H1B or EB green card. Yes a lot get married to stay legal but lots more get work visas and green cards as well. And what’s so bad about getting married anyways? So far it’s someone you love? Lots of people have also done this.

If you finally decide to go to US, please don't ghost ur NYSC.

It's better you are absent for your NYSC or absent for your masters.

One thing at a time. Believe me one day it will show on record that you were serving your father land the same year you were obtaining your masters abroad.

You don't want that kind of record. Am talking from experience.

Just choose one.

There is nothing wrong with getting married IF it is someone you love. The problem I have heard is that the people you want to love will look at you with side eye.

They will assume that the green card you are looking for is what is supporting the love, and because you are on time limit you will not have enough time to prove yourself. These doubts are the key issue.

The reason US is casted is because instead of playing that game of OPT or H1B green card which is not sure (H1B relies on a lottery) with Canada once you finish, not need for lottery, no need for sharp love, you can get what you want.

This is why I say Canada is the way forward. H1B is not secure. I know someone personally who ended up joining army after 4 years in University and 1 year work permit under mavni program for people that can speak African language. His life is mortgaged for 6 good years just so he can stay there. It makes no sense, when for the same cost he could have gone to Canada.

Do you see it now.

I understand your predicament. my advice is try before taking your next step try to enquire if u can defer the admission for possibly some months if u are sure u are to go with the next batch . if its possible to defer ur admission for some months I will suggest u do that and go to camp first after all your documentations and you are out of camp you can easily sort out the rest and then go for your studies. better still DM me for further info I can't share here

Yes, I understand you. But you’re still not getting the full picture. Canada gives Avenue for permanent residency BUT they just don’t hand it to you. You still have to go through a nomination program, where your province nominated you or the Canadian experience route. Part of the requirements is that you must have worked in your field of specialization for a year. It’s possibe, but hard to get that experience. The jobs are not that plentiful unlike the US and even tougher as an international student.

Another reason people opt for the US is that a lot of graduate students get tuition waiver, in form of of a research, teaching or graduate assistantship. Canada gives that, but it’s very very very limited. Jobs are plentiful in the US than Canada, and that’s s fact. Lots of Canadians actually work in the US under the H1B program too, at least I know about three who work for my husband’s company.

Either route anybody chooses tho, my advise is, do not come to the US or Canada to study a non competitive course and expect to have it good after graduation. Jobsvare hard to find if you’re an immigrant and the only way to counter that is to be in a field where the natives haven’t already saturated.

What you have said is very true. I know someone struggling under Canadian Experience route and it isn't easy at all. The area he lives is cheap but no credible jobs so he is planning to decamp to a bigger city so you are very right about Canada.

America pays once you are settled and have papers for sure, and going to study Biology can never pay. Many went and studied courses that aren't credible and french schools all over Nigeria are full of them.

The key thing is that God should just keep having mercy. It seems you and your husband are based abroad. I wish you all the best. Abeg continue to represent us well maybe they will give us more chances to enter.

Exactly. I spoke to a former classmate from Iberia who did his masters in Canada and in Geophysics . He’s struggling to find a job and coupled with the oil prices downturn, it’s not been easy at all.

Let’s just pray for the grace of God, cos all these abroad comes with their own set of wahala. Thanks for the wishes, appreciate it.

Please tell me about the school you are gonna do your masters in, I'd be done with my HND soon. thanks
