This event was narrated by a student who attended her nysc youth service at osun nysc camp. She states:

My first day in osun state nysc camp was a very hectic and also enjoyable day. The began with my colleagues waking me up as early as 3 am in the morning, i could not stand the idea of waking up do early in the morning but with time I soon became accustomed to it.

The day starts with the Corp members during different chores and getting ready for training session which starts at 6 am. One of such session that I enjoyed is the man O war drilling sessions.

After the drilling sessions we go to have our breakfast and we also had our swearing in ceremony immediately after we had breakfast.

We also had lunch after the swearing in ceremony followed by another drilling session in the evening. A party was also hosted that night for the new otondos who had just came for the nysc scheme, I was alsoone of them. The party was sponsored by Etisalat.
We enjoyed that night as foods and drinks were scattered all over the place.

What also got me awed is the way which people get close to each other so fast that you would think they have known each other for a long period of time. People meeting for the first time and acting all lovey dovey in a short moment of time spent together. I also had my own fare share of this too, infact an otondo bought me a meal on my first day on camp, and it was a delicious one.

Life at osun state nysc camp is a very interesting one when you look at the fun, and people you get to meet. It is also a very hectic one with hours of drills you have to undergo, and other things like avalaibility of water, long hours of queing etc.


Water is one big problem in the osun state nysc camp. The price of water is very high as those selling them usually take advantage of the fact that water is verily much in the demand at the camp. Surprisingly this has always and will always be one problem that the government will have to sort out. The scarcity of water has always been a recurring experience in a place where much population are prevalent.


How painful it is to wake up early, under tedious training sessions with the soldiers barking at you all day. Sadly this has been one area that have created a bad memory for me. The long hours of queing just to get water for usage is not something to write home about.

Am sorry if you are the one who has a high taste in food, then you should get prepared to get meals that are below par, jokingly this foods aren’t gonna worth the bill you will pay for them. There is also the Maami market for those who want to get stuffs like food, infact everything you can need is sold there.


This is the phase where you have to prove all you have learn during your nysc service. All the training sessions, talk hours are experiences that would have shaped and expanded your knowledge in so many areas. You are to prove all you have learnt, when this is done, you will be awarded a certificate of completion.
