Acceptance letters can accompany other types of documents. For example, if a person is promoted to a higher job position, it is necessary to write a letter of acceptance to agree with such changes.

This official letter has to be written straight to the point. Its addressee is the administration of the company or supervisor who makes an offer or request or the NYSC office whose corp member is accepted at his or her PPA.

The person who writes the acceptance letter has to kindly let the firm know that he or she is happy to accept the request. Alternatively, when it comes to the National Youth Service Corps acceptance in Nigeria, this letter officially informs NYSC that the person (member) is successfully accepted at PPA.

A sample of NYSC acceptance letter

Before you accept your PPA at NYSC, you should take some time and make sure your place of primary placement offers you a good accommodation with everything you need for a comfortable life (a secure place with basic furniture and needs) and good monthly allowance to support yourself.

If you like what PPA offers, take your posting letter to finalize everything. The company might interview you, ask to make some medical tests, and if the firm is eager to hire you, it will issue you an acceptance letter instead of your posting letter (collected by them).

Before you bring this document to the office of your local government inspector (shortly called LGI) or NYSC office for registration, you are highly advised to make several copies of your NYSC letter of acceptance and give out only copies. Keep the original NYSC letter yourself.

Here is a sample of acceptance letter:
