All this story are not brain breaking jorh...he was just quite fortunate that he was retained after his NYSC....but the bitter aspect now is that himself and other people in that present position are not ready to take corp members to start like they did for him...I finished from the same Futa 2018 with a second class Hon's upper division in Applied Geophysis.... NYSC too deployed me to that same Port Harcourt for the national service 2018-2019, but ended up serving in a secondary school in Port Harcourt, just because this set of Banji are not making things easy and work well for we that are just coming, we waka-waka we couldn't get a PPA in such firm like NCDC... it's a pity for this our generation...I bid him all the best in his race
