I got dis info from CrossCountry transport ltd website; as per transportation fare from Lagos to Kano town on one way package is 8000 and for full return package is 13000.
Departure time from Lagos is always 6:35am and arrival at the terminal bus station for boarding must be 1hr 30min before the departure time.
For more info on and bookings call 08055555595, 0177644000
Lagos office at 345 Muritala Mohammed way, Yaba (Near Yaba B/Stop, Opposite Presbyterian Church), Lagos.
It is expected that the package for Corpers be different from the above slightly if they are to take us to the Orientation camp site.

Not a corper though, but I have been living and working in Kano with my family for 15 years and I have passionately helped corpers at different times. If you need any assistance (not financial) or have any enquiries, you can reach me on this thread; I will be more than willing to help within my capacity.

Re: A thread for corpers posted to Kano by omobaba101: 4:23am On Nov 04, 2012
@ Orpelin, Airport to the Karaye camp is about 1.35 mins if you take a drop straight from the Airport. The city is a commercial city, they can be very nice to visitors, though there are religious bigots, but not everybody really. Let me know when you come in, if I can help in anyway for your posting. The atmosphere is not as bad as people outside think about religious tolerance and protection. Kano is safe as I'm talking now.

I did my 3weeks orientation camp in Kusalla dam, karaye LGA Kamo State, though as a dislocated FCT Corper. I enjoyed the 3weeks I spent there, because when we eventually went to abuja Camp to conclude our registration, we were glad we did camp in kano.
During our time (batchB 2011) we were told Kano NYSC won the best Secretariat in Nigeria.
The camp is a permanent site so it is well structured. Well paved roads and gutters too. The only problem is d harsh sun and extreme cold at night, so be prepared adequately.
If you must buy food at mammy market, make sure you buy from MADAM EDO, she's the best I tell ya. Dnt waste ur money on others.
Kano is a peaceful town and they welcome corpers well too. There's a song dt was usually played on camp back then 'ku zo muje, ku zo muje garin kano, Allah mai girima, ka sa mana albarka' etc. Lovely music I tell ya
They have a large market in Sabon Gari and so many corpers take advantage of that especially in gold business.
I was sad leaving Kano after 3weeks. Have fun guys
