Sorry For keeping u guys waiting

MTN network here is bad via browsing..coupled with d rave n euphoria of camp life

Ur comments critics quotes r highly welcomed
NOTE its my personal experience...

Haven been deployed for 17 Batch A stream 1 but left camp due to Thumbpriniting ish on d day of swearing in, i jejely go village go hide cuz i cudnt bear d questions dat wud arise if dos close to me discovers i left camp.

By God's special Grace after all applications Nysc sent me a mail to go re-enrol my thumb print of which i did..

Fast forward to 21st July, i printed my callup n it retained the Cross River i was initially posted...

On Wed 26th July
I set out on my Second NYSC Journey to Calabar.. The bus delayed due to low passengers turnout to my farthest expectations
After 3hrs we moved it took us 3hrs plus to get to Oduokpani where me n fellow pcms boarded a bus to Akamkpa which was 20mins drive from oduokpani.... On getting to the camp gate where we were searched thoroughly, we headed straight to Boys hostel where a room was allotted to the 5 of us from Umuahia.
We headed straight to the Pavillion where Registration was ongoing...

By sharpness n fastness i got registered in less than 35mins even before people dat arrived early to camp, Ah got Platoon 4 proceeded to platoon n bank stuffs regitrations.
I jazzed into maimi n cooled off with a chilled bottle of Stout after downing a plate of Hot egusi soup..
After much ameboing around, i observed the lightsout

No dream could stop the bustling n hustling from my Room n Hostel at large.. Especially dos that couldnt register yesterday..
After bathing, i left d hostel by 4:30 to the pavilion.
I added an hour of Holy sleep to my shortened routinely 6hrs sleep which was interrupted by noise in the hostel.

The camp officials came in, addressed us den Parade practice started in earnest as we were taught all d remove hairdress, beagle sounds, intro of camp officials n so forth.
After spending some quality hours learning d Parade processes...

We had Coloured Hot water n Bromate foam bread as Breakfast,

Continued with some registration palavers
Had beans n garri for lunch

Parade practice for swearing in continued immediately we just finished lunch...
There on parade ground,, countless fainting real n unreal ensued..

Watery ogbono soup n a small mould of garri for dinner

The bustle continues as i gave out my oversized Khaki for shaping n ironing in preparation for the swearing in Tmoro... While i got mysef busy with some slay mamas

28th July (swearing in)

Very early as usual
Had our morning devotion in the room and also at parade ground
We started morning drill n practice against Swearing in..
We continued with the remove Hairdressing!!! And 3 hearty cheers blah blah blah
We practiced upto 2hrs
I chopped Frog Jump n rolling on the floor for chatting n Phone pressing

Had our breakfast Tea n Bread again angry angry angry
Ah tire for d food as ah kukuma eat for mammy,
Collected my khaki Trouser From a laundry guy dat ironed it for me...
Went to the Hostel as i freshened up n prepared for the coming Prof Sen Ben Ayade...

9ckock dot we were beagled grin out of hostel wen the state chief judge arrived.. All protocols were observed as we paraded n sworn in as Corpers

Had Garri n Egusi soup for lunch

I made many more friends especially the girls cheesy wink cheesy

Met a sweet curvalocious bootystic bumpy black angel today daz a story for anoda day shaa

Dey started paying our Transport allowance of 1500 cash

Kept on chasing girls upandan grin and asking names here n and there

From the announcements in the morning we ought to have our welcome night sumtin sumtin only to be surprised with a welcome parade lol

We entered a new phase of parade in which platoon officers (soldiers) are in charge

We started with Attention At ease! About turn left story story

The grounds started to tremble with sounds of shift lemme faint, as the Red cross hands were filled up with fainted corpers both fake n real

I even considered the option wen the parade became heavy on me

Wheras my close friends av all joined OBS n Redcross.. In which i defied to join it dawned on me its importance but i insisted within mysef to participate just in the platoon...

Nigerian Flag was lowered at 6clock n subsequently we were relieved of parade drills

We had jollof Rice for dinner

I must commend the kitchen here... The foods r cooked Well n sweet n also d sharing formular is quite impressive

Rained heavily xo cudnt chill out in mammy

29th July

I heard the beagle as it was drawing close to my ears
I snapped out of my dreams due to d sweet nyt rest powered by a heavy rainfall lastnight.

Prepared n ran out of the hostel straight to the hall... Observed our morning praises, prayer, daily meditation, announcements n news.

We walked down to parade ground to our different platoons where Man O war gave us soft drills n gyrations before Army took over to jumping upandan, lefting n righting.

Lemme use dis opportunity to describe the Camp....
Cross river State temporary Orientation camp is located at akamkpa Abi lga of cross river... Its a 30mins drive from calabar municipal..
Its a College of Education, with a large landmass, d school boasts of two hostels for Male n two for females, the truth is dat the school is even better dan some Federal polys via infrastructure, environment, landscape etcetera
WATER
The camp has a flowing stream n lots of boreholes n a Mechanical pump (manpower) all around d hostels.. So water isnt a problem so to say
ELECTRICITY
At least we get good 4hours of Nepa light everyday, so its fair to me
MAMMY Market
The mammy market is more of temporary defined bcuz evry structure there is built with bamboo sticks n woods den mostly canopies, tho tinz are expensive in the market, everytin is virtually on biz there
SECURITY
the security on camp is tight as should be, the soldiers are visibily all over d camp, dey r easily spotted at every nook n cranny
In generality i commend Nysc for providing us a school better dan their permanent Orientation camp at obubra

Will drop more updates about d camp later
Re: My Daily Episodes In NYSC Orientation Camp@ Cross River 17A STR 2 by Librate(m): 10:56pm On Jul 30, 2017
Still on 29th July

Am writing with limited time n space so daz y i jump certain details n gists but hopefully with time will elaborate more on my episodes...


After the Morning drills we had 2 balls of Akara n Pap with 2cubes of sugar for Breakfast

We had our laundry n sanitation time till we had our lunch which was watery ogbonoic bitterleaf soup, very yucky,
While we were still eating in the hostels the Beagle started its annoying sound of "fall out'. The murmuring dat ensued here n there lessenned wen Soldiers started chasing everybody out.. As a perpertual late comer i chop anoda frog jump,
We got to our platoon as the Officers incharge of our platoon arent smiling at all,
We have a female Officer n a male officer as our platoon instructors..
During the parade a guy made my day..
The guy obviously not in sound health defied his health condition to be attentioning upandan, at a point his body cudnt take it any more he signaled a red cross corper to help carry him out of d parade ground dat he is weak, d red cross corper insteas of heeding d guys words continued asking useless questions like.. Wats wrong with u? Av u eatn? Aw is it doing u?
While his incessant questions persisited the sick guy fell on him n fainted lols no be person tell d red cross guy to summon for stretcher n ambulance...

After the parade we elected our platoon president n vice president
We went for our dinner... Untasty jollof rice n fish
Before eating jack d beagle started again for fall out... Dey wont even allow d food to digest in our stomachs
Its our welcome party
Yoruba igbo n hausa welcomed us in their different styles
It was fun tho as the dance floor was lit up by unholy crowd on d stage
Den i jazzed into mamy to hotten up my nerves grin
Before we were chased back to the hostels by the soldiers

Corper wee! How is your Moral?
Akamkpa was real fun man. I enjoyed every bit of it trust me. From d beagles, to the meditation to d man-o-war drills to the parade thingy. I even commanded my platoon mehn. Made me popular and i made LOTS of friends (ladies especially) grin.
Their tea (coloured hot water we call it) always had to b augmented with extra milk, bournvita nd sugar shaaaa. Oh how will i forget the everyday social night nd d entertainment it brought. Mammi happened EVERY NIGHT mehn... Boiz bin booze shaaaaaaaa. CARNIVAL was d BOMB mahnnn. Shet God go bless NYSC jor.
Above all, make sure u r close to your platoon commander, platoon officer (NYSC) and be useful in any way you can to ur platoon cos in the end na una go enjoy am.
Mention me if u have any questions or call 08188707267. Welcome to THE PEOPLES PARADISE...
