NYSC / Re: Your NYSC Questions Answered by Darkchocolate(f): 5:50am On Jan 03, 2020

****UPDATE 02/01/2020****
Happy New Year Fam.... We are still here. Just checking in on y'all.

So looking to open a whatsapp group so that you guys can get help and answers real time and also easily link up with any Corp members in your state. Eg: if you have just arrived at camp and need a question answered real quick...that type of scenario. If I get 20 or more people show aq, I will open it. Just let me know. Tag me with your number!!! It should be a platform that can help with job opportunites, further education (home and abroad) CV building and mentoring, etc

Please can I get a direct bus from Uyo to Ilorin and how much will it cost me ?

Wouldn't it be easier to go to the local bus park and ask? Or find out from google? Most of these bus companies have websites now with their route details.

Go as soon as you can and explain to them. They might just allow you to complete your registration. No harm in trying.

please I was supposed to go for stream one, I couldnt meet up due to some health issues, is it possible I go for stream two and what do I need to do if I was to go for stream two

Did you inform them that you couldn't attend? Do you have a valid medical report covering you. You should probably go to nysc office in your area to speak to them and get proper advice on what to do next.

Short sleeve definitely. Unless you have some medical (backed with medical report) or religious reason to wear long sleeve.

You can always use your khaki jacket to cover-up if you are feeling conscious.

Pls guys, those exempted from the 21 days camping experience, either because they are pregnant or sick, how do they get their first allawee since it's to be collected as cash in camp

They should have really asked about this during registration. Nevertheless, I would go on the day of the allowee though. I wouldnt trust them to leave it till the end of camp.

Hello guys my cousin has a health issue that would affect his service. His leg has been swollen for about 2years now. He graduated last year. Please what is the best way to defer nysc or is there ga way to work it out so he wouldnt need to serve. maybe get an exception letter instead or something by presenting medical report and evidence.

He wants to travel abroad for treatments and there is every possibility he wont be back anytime soon.


Does he need to register for.nysc before travelling so he can serve when he has regain his health?

He needs to go to nysc website and follow the procedure for exemption on medical grounds. If he qualifies, he will be exempt entirely from serving. Unless he wants to keep postponing it...indefinitely...

If it s Lagos State, they are at Alausa. So just go there and speak to them in the the first instance.

Not sure where they are for other states but they shouldnt be difficult to find. Google their address. Goodluck.

dont shorter torsos come with shorter vaginal depth?

A friend confided in me his wife sent him a budget break down to take care of their 9 months daugther for a month. it was 30k
This is for 4 cerelac,7 nutribon, 4 biggest size diapers,2 nan, 4 wipes
Mothers in the house any cost effective means to Cater for a child on half of this budget #15k
30k is some peoples salary a month
Mind u the husband earns 100k monthly
Suggestions welcome

I have a 9 month old and I 'll tell you my own experience. This isn't based on saving money though but I guess it could go a long way in helping you. Her main nutrition is breast milk. She hates baby milk so that saves a whole lot of money. If your baby isnt breastfed, then normal baby milk would do. Baby's need calcium and that shouldnt be compromised.

She eats what we eat. I have a small pot next to the main family pot when I am cooking a meal. Everything goes in except salt and oil (very minimal). She hates baby food, cerelac, etc etc. By the way, she doesnt have any teeth yet so we mash up her food (vegs included) for her. Not to puree though cos she will just reject it. If you must feed pap, then vary it with other foods and fortify the pap with baby milk because pap doesnt have a great nutritional content for baby. It might make them full, quicker, but wouldn't help health-wise. Every baby is different so always try cheaper but equally nutritious alternatives and supplement with other foods too. How about baby cereal? Have you tried that? Or maybe oats (just normal oats but the powered ones. They are super nutritious and gluten free...And dead cheap too. Just try supplementing and see what works. Baby's at that age love to experiment anyway and will love different options presented to him/her. Try fruits too. Don't forget! A bowl of Fruit and vegetable are also considered full meals and can be used for breakfast. Doesnt always have to be cerelac morning, afternoon and night.

Re diapers, do you mean 4 big packs or 4 small packs? Always buy in bulk or bigger quantities. Might seem more expensive but cheaper in the long run. Diapers are essential but look for cheaper brands. It doesnt always have to be pampers or huggies. I wouldnt say go for cloth diaper because that is just too much work. However if you must save money, then consider cloth diapers. They are good for the environment too!

Same goes for wet wipes. There are cheaper alternatives. However, to save money you can go for just cotton wool and water. It isnt as convenient as wet wipes but it is very kind to baby's skin. You can save wet wipes for outings where water might not be easily assessible. However, if at home, cotton wool and water is sometimes best. I use wet wipes but sometimes, her bum bum needs a break from all the harshness so I just use cotton wool. Other times, I just use plain water (if the poo is just too much). We have exhausted one wet wipe packet before wiping non ending poo grin... It wasnt a pretty sight!!! Goodluck.

Is it odd to start feeling baby movements as early as 14 weeks? shocked

Hubby says it's all in my head but I know d feeling already just like my first pregnancy ....am I alone? grin

Not odd at all. Especially if it isn't your first or if you are really in tune with your body. It feels like butterfly flutters at first or trapped wind. If that is what you are feeling, then my bet is that the baby is practicing its karate moves already.

PurestBoy:
I have 2 boys, Kevin and Alvin, 4 and 1yr old respectively, both were on 6-month exclusive breastfeeding, Had Cow&Gate2 baby formula, Kevin is just too active, he doesn't doesn't even walk at home, he runs even when I take him out (cos he doesn't even play in the compound), he can't stay in a place for 2 minutes except he's watching his favorite cartoon channel GoTv 60, no matter how you beat him he doesn't cry for more than few seconds, he learns too much that he even corrects me his father but the problem is he's too active (I don't want to use the word stubborn). His 11+ mths younger brother is already following his footsteps, their mother shouts and beats Kevin every minute for jumping around in the house like monkey. He even engages in fight with me whenever I want to watch my favorite channels except I beat him thoroughly, he wouldn't allow anyone touch anything that is his. Their mother is fed up and losing weight and she's afraid his Alvin is already acting likewise. I don't know what to do because you can't leave Kevin alone in the house without closed monitoring for a minute else something bad and injurious might happen. All my life, I've never see a kid like my boy, I need advise on what to do, it was worse when he was younger. I don't like beating him like his Mom does but won't have peace at home due to excessive shouting and scolding except he's asleep. Anyone with ideas on how to curtail this?

How are you two already beating a 4 year old toddler. SMH. Explains his behaviour. lipsrsealed

Hello. I will be going to camp with my 3 month old baby and I also want redeploying on marital ground (I didn't register as married). Do u think I can do all this in a day. Will I be staying in camp? I don't want to stress my baby

I am not sure whether all these can be achieved in one day. Nevertheless, under no circumstance will you be allowed to stay in camp with your baby. So just do what you can and come back the next day if you have to.

Good luck

Is medical fitness test a must?

Well I would assume so. They don't want you to take ill (camp-induced illness) whilst in camp. If you have any issues medically that is significant, get a doctors report and take it to camp with you.

thank you!
btw, do you know what the letter of request of request should be like?, like a format?

I remember I typed lots of these for my work place. I really can't remember the exact format though.

I do remember that...

It should have normal formal salutations for a standard letter, name of the corp member, state code, etc ...and the company details....contact person in the company. On a company letter headed paper. Also address it to the state coordinator.

still, @Darkchocolate please answer us oo and shed more light abeg

Hey, I m not entirely sure on the state transfer job thingy but if you have a job within the same state and the company gives you a letter of request, I don't see why NYSC won't agree to post you there (if you are within the same state)!

Camp is not fun for a nursing mother. You register on the first day and get sent home. You only come back 3 or so more times for allowee, etc. They do not allow nursing mothers to stay or return daily.

Hey guys, i was wondering if i can get a exemption letter or so. Actually, im planning on moving out of the country. Im half cast: part Nigerian nd Ghanaian. I've always used 'Nigerian' as nationality. However the opportunity to change location has presented itself. I couldn't go for batch A & B 2017. I intially had plans to go for nysc 2018 but dont think it would be necessary since ghana also has her youth service scheme. What do you think?

I don't think you can get an exemption letter on grounds of relocation. If you don't want to serve then don't bother. Go do your thing in Ghana. If you do want to serve in Nigeria, then stick it out. Just weigh up which country provides you with the best opportunities after serving. NYSC in Nigeria is not a do or die affair.
