‘NYSC Changed My Perception Of Igbos’ by Ctorch: 2:42pm On Jul 23
A former Corps member, Adejo Alexander Johnson, has advised prospective corps members not to be in a hurry to seek redeployment from states they are posted to for the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC).

He regretted that some to-be corps members had missed their divine opportunities by redeploying from states they weare posted to because of wrong perception about the people.

Adejo, a native of Benue State, who served in Anambra State under 2019 Batch ‘B’ Stream II, said he sought redeployment because he erroneously thought the people were selfish and tribalistic.

The Mass Communication graduate of Ahmadu Bello University (ABU), Zaria, however, said his service year turned out to be life transforming.

He said: “I was posted to Anambra State but had intention to relocate. I heard a whole lot about Igbo people, and how they segregate and prefer theirs to yours.

“The most threatening thing I heard about them is that they eat humans. My mom told me about her relation that was killed. I had a senior colleague in school, who they said was ‘killed’ during his service year in Enugu.

“When I got to camp, the first thing I did was to make my intention to redeploy known to the Coordinator. But he said he saw the potential in me that I will do well in the state. I was really not convinced.

“But in the course of the orientation, I had opportunities to do so many things. I was the camp MC and handled so many social activities as well as repairs of camp gadgets.

“After that, it was a whole different perception. The hospitality I received in and outside camp was amazing.

“I called my mom and told her I am no longer going to relocate. I must confess my experience here was really mind blowing. I enjoyed the people and their culture.”

Adejo, who served as a teacher at the Kenneth Dike Memorial Secondary School, Awka, said he would not be returning home after the service, having secured a job with a media organization in the state.

“Trust me; I’m not even leaving the state soon. I have two plans. At the moment, I am running an internship with a media outfit in the capital city.

In the course of the pandemic, I decided to build up my journalism skills. I spoke with the director of the company. I am working there as a reporter.

“I am also making plans to run a Master’s programme at the Nnamdi Azikiwe University (UNIZIK). So, these will definitely keep me in Anambra in the next one to two years before God tells me the next plan,” he said.

Whatever the Idiot wrote that it is his perception of Igbos is his own cup of tea and that of his people...

He should simply serve and shut his mouth or establish if the environment is favourable to him...

The op should also ask igbos about their perception of them, abi na igbos sent FULANI to be clubbing in Benue since last 4 years...

everybody has one yeye perception or the other because igbo man owns una anything....nonsense and buhari..

every nonsense is now journalism..



Who your perception epp?

last time it was Gambari, today na adejoh

the whole stuff is becoming stale..

Nice summation, that's the same way the North used to be. Remember my first time in the North (KD city precisely) they were such nice people, and northerners are still nice except for religious stuffs.


Left for me, I will scrap the NYSC things, it has caused more harm than good.


Together we can make Nigeria better

Igbos are loving and hardworking people, they are not folks from the other side posses with monitoring spirits, many of them are flooding Igbo land, here in Anambra they are everywhere, Onitsha, Nnewi , Awka even in villages we welcome them, we don't pay evil with evil.

Here in Awka they are in every street hustling while the ignorant ones from their tribe think Nigeria started from Lagos and end in Ondo

May God bless their hustle

Good for you and thank God you have a new take about them..


That was the primary purpose for the creation of the youth corps but politics and many negative factors have prevented it from living up to the full expectations...

I served in Akwa Ibom and it was nice to be honest... We heard reports of how they eat humans etc but we later found out they were lies..

Many parts of the country and tribes we detest,hate and cast some jabs at may not be as bad as they are painted, some Na just politics of hatred and bitterness aimed at diving us...

I hope we can imbibe this spirit of accommodating ourselves and accept our uniqueness and use our differences as an advantage instead of war and injustice...

Well that's good. But you should also tell your brothers to visit the south east too. They always sit in their fathers house and imagine evil things about the south east wishing them to be true.
