Serving your father land is a necessity in Nigeria. NYSC,The NYSC scheme was created in a bid to reconstruct, reconcile and rebuild the country after the Nigerian Civil war.
The unfortunate antecedents in our national history gave impetus to the establishment of the National Youth Service Corps by decree No.24 of 22nd May 1973 which stated that the NYSC is being established “with a view to the proper encouragement and development of common ties among the youths of Nigeria and the promotion of national unity”.
I was posted to the North contrary to my expectation. We woke up quite early around 4am. Freshened up and all then we had to carry our boxes and items for general search and registration!
The struggle!! It was out of this world😭. By 4:30pm the Parade ground was filled with corpers wearing white on white.This is a one in a lifetime experience. 3 weeks of serious stress, military drills and massive interactions. Interacting with the right individuals is extremely essential in camp. Choose your clique wisely and spend wisely. Day one and feeding has drained my budget😂. Let’s not forget the extra daily needs. Back to the orientation, the drills are so rigorous that we had people feinting!!
There is a picture of the medical team resuscitating a female corper. Well, you have to be fit to partake in this kind of exercise lol. After the 2 hour drilling, i could see most people paired in two’s. Most guys have found bae’s 😂. No be me talk am oo. I’m done gossiping about day 1. Lights out! Nigeria sleeps by 10:00pm 😂.
