Treat this information as important. It has become necessary that we inform you because a lot of persons who encountered similar issues were unable to open their NYSC allowance account which is mandatory for all Corps members.

The Bank officials at NYSC camp will check if the name on the document corresponds with the name on your BVN. Only if it corresponds that you will open NYSC allowance account.
Also, do not forget to go to camp with your BVN because it will be needed for that purpose.
