Check Out Photos Of The Lodge Some Corps Members Are Staying In The East

I am very sure that many corps members will be familiar with my experience and the story that comes with it. The National Youth Service corps (NYSC), has been around for some decades now, so it is not a new programme to many people, especially University and polytechnic graduates.

According to the fundamental explanation as regards why it was created, this program was created by the Nigerian government to make Nigerian graduates get more familiar with different environments within the country, which will aid the development of the country.

Somewhere in the East, my sister was posted for her NYSC programme. She had always wanted to serve in the East because we literally grew up in the West, and also schooled in the West. Please, kindly note that I have decided to not mention the exact place in this article for the protection of the parties involved.

After my sister was posted to the East, she was so happy as it had always been her dream to mingle with the Igbo people. According to what one of her friends once told us, if you wine and dine with the Igbo people, you will be mentally brushed up on how to run a successful business.

After my sister got to her NYSC camp, she told me that when she had gotten her PPA and accommodation, she would call me to come visit her. After about 2 months she arrived the camp, I received a call from her and she told me that I could come visit her. I was so happy that little did I know what surprise was in stock for me. When I got to where she was posted, see what I saw below.

I asked her why she was staying in such an area, she told me that she is even lucky to have secured accommodation there. Interestingly, she was not the only one there, there were several other corps members inhabiting the place. I was so irritated that I could not stay up to the time I wanted to stay initially.

I cannot still believe it till this moment that my sister managed herself with that accommodation till she finished her NYSC exercise. I think the corps members deserve better.
