DIARY OF A LAGOS CORPER
It’s official I ,Iretomiwa Ekisola, is a Lagos corper ( yes, Jesus is my connection). I know someone is rolling their eyes, yeah I have been gone for a while. I am sha back my people. Back to the topic, I am a Lagos corper. I will be documenting my experience but you also have to remember I am lazy, so this may be a series or maybe not. If you are wondering ‘how is she even posting this?’ , my dear life happened. Did Tomiwa go to camp? yes. Is Tomiwa writing this from camp? NO. What happened? One day, I will say the full gist but it is well. Back to my gist, let me pretend like I will be serious and make this a series. This episode is called ‘NYSC I have questions’ because I have a truck load of them already.
First those people that said NYSC was fun, please what exactly is your definition of fun?! because I am not understanding. I now understand why people shout when some people hold politically positions without participating in NYSC. Like how can you not suffer and decide to be up there?!
Why exactly did NYSC ask for our sizes during registration,if they intended to give us potato sacks as clothes? They shouldn’t have asked us because then the random assigning of clothes will actually make sense. Your girl looked like a refugee in her clothes by the way, thank God for tailors.
Every possible business is in mami market, it actually remains for them to sell human being. On God, I am not even exaggerating. I asked my friend “what are they not selling here?” and he said ‘prostitution’ LMAO. Aside from that mami market is a mini shoprite.
Why exactly don’t we have adequate facilities in this NYSC something? Rooms are overcrowded, human being should just forget about using the toilet. The bathrooms ehn, let me just quote my friend that said ‘this is the only place where bathing once is healthier than bathing twice’ . To think that Lagos is chilling makes me wonder what other camps look like.
On the bright side , NYSC just felt like school reunion or better still extended school. I met my secondary school mate, who I quoted twice here and other FUNAAB people. so it is not all that bad. To all the people that said “Tomiwa read so you can chill when you are done?”, Abeg where is the chill? because all I see is stress. I end this blog post with the most important thing NYSC camp has taught me, DO NOT GIVE THE WHOLE MAMI MARKET YOUR NUMBER, IF NOT EVERYONE WILL CALL YOU FOR SOMETHING.
Have you obeyed the clarion call yet?
If you haven’t are you eager to start NYSC?
Was NYSC camp fun for you or I am just overreacting?
