History of Kogi State NYSC Secretariat
Built by the NYSC.
This is the administrative office of the National Youth Service Corps in Kogi. It oversees the welfare, documentation and the general affairs of youth corpers in the state.
This is a very safe location.

What To Bring
Before heading to Kogi State NYSC Secretariat, here are some helpful things to take along with you:
All documents regarding NYSC including; Call-up letter, Registration documents, School's Certificate, Green Card and Student ID Card
Copies of Passport Photographs
Your NYSC ID Card
While there are secretariats in all local governments in the state, this is the headquarters and so houses the State Coordinator, along with other high ranking state officials. It is here to report to after your 21 days at the Orientation Camp to get assigned to your Place of Primary Assignment (PPA). Weekly Community Development Service (CDS) are also held here, along with the NYSC sponsored Skills Acquisition Entrepreneurship Development program. This is also where to go if you have inquiries about the NYSC scheme in Kogi State.
As long as you are fully kitted in your NYSC uniform, you have no fear of being turned away. Different people have different tales of how they interacted with the officials and staff but I have found that a smile, knowledge of the local language, and an appealing face helps for a positive interaction. It will be wise to befriend one of the staff as you never know when an inside-ear will be needed.
