NYSC Batch B Stream II Camp Opens on 20th August
Things To Expect Within the NYSC Orientation Camp
As Registration is still on and camp is close, prospective corps members should note these things forehand before they get to to the camp.
As soon as you enter the gate of your various orientation camps, you will see enough uniformed men. Your screening starts at the gate. Of course, you might be afraid, but just follow orders.
RECOMMENDED: LETTER TO MY BROTHERS IN THE COLORS OF NYSC!
1. Thorough search
Your loads would be searched thoroughly as they don’t want any weapons or prohibited items like iron, knives, bombs, etc. within the camp
Usually, the first registration is normally for hostel/bed space. After checking in your luggages at the gate, You would be given tags to identify with. Do not misplace your tags as they would be collected at the place where you will collect your foam. Or most times the foams are already available in the hostels and you are taken there. After that, Other registrations at the NYSC orientation camp will follow. Provide all necessary documents asked of you.
Strictly follow instructions.
3. Your NYSC Kits
You will be given all your NYSC kits during the registration phase. They include shirts, shorts and shoes. To avoid stealing and for proper identification, use a permanent marker to write your Code Number (CN) on them. This Code Number is your temporary ID card that you will use in your stay at the camp. Without this, you cannot eat the free food offered in the camp.
4. Casual Wears will not be allowed
When you get your kits, only your white T-shirt, white shorts, white socks and white tennis shoe will be allowed for the 21 days in the orientation camp. Although, there may be times where you might put on your full NYSC kit i.e the Uniform itself.
5. Regimented Programme/Parade
If you are the type that wakes up late, you would have to adjust as you would have to wake up as early as 3:30am, so as to get prepared. A trumpet wakes you at 4am. Everyone would be expected to assemble at the parade ground by 4:30am. Praises and worship for different religions (Christians and Islam) will be said.
7. Place Of Primary Assignment (PPA)
Your PPA is where you will be posted to do your work. Most Corpers will be posted to primary schools and secondary schools, few will be posted to the state capital and other places. Do not lobby or bribe anyone for your posting, especially the ladies. Just pray to God for a good PPA. Receive your PPA in good faith. After all, youths obey the clarion call under the sun or in the rain.
8. Always do your clearance
NYSC clearance should be taken seriously by all youth corp members. You would have to do this before you go home. It is very important because it registers you as a NYSC youth corper in the local government you were posted. Failure to complete your clearance before going home would see your subsequent monthly allowance/allawee not being recieved.
NOTE: Time is limited so start preparing for camp with all necessary documents including; Medical Fitness Certificate, as you will not be allowed on camp without that.
