Concerning nursing mothers and pregnant women, you would not be allowed to stay fully in camp for the 3 weeks. After your registration you will be decamped because they feel that the camp is not conducive enough for your condition and state of health.  The policy is done to forestall avoidable emergency that may occur to the expectant mothers during the 3 weeks orientation Program, which entails some rigorous physical exercises.

Today is the last morning drills and meditation that would be conducted for my batch .Sad much .It’s just now I started to realize how much I’m going to miss camp life, miss my new friends and also my platoon(Not everyone o!). There was not really much to do on the parade ground. All otondos were gathered together and talked to concerning what to expect after camp and things to do.

There was also final marching rehearsal for the selected few to perfect their steps before tomorrow’s closing ceremony. After the short meeting we were allowed to go and prepare for tomorrow.  I went straight to collect my redeployment letter and as lucky as I could be I was redeployed to 2 states ! wow. I was surprised so I picked one of the two. I was cleared and told I could leave camp. Some people didn’t even wait, they already started leaving.

I didn’t want to rush because I thought I and my friends had plans after camp. We wanted to spend one night together before we disperse. So I went back to my room, gathered all my things . Took my bath, went to mammy to chill with my friends. I had lunch. I collected my pictures from the various photographers. Then I also collected my video CD I booked for.

Today I decided to give myself a cool camp treat. I bought the nice sharwama, ice cream, chicken. I was very full that I went back to my room and slept.  i was told that we are to submit mattress by 4am.







Morning o. After yesterdays event . Real camp activities start today. Morning drills held as usual.
We were separated into platoons today. Our platoon commandant and head were introduced to us . We all voted for our platoon executives but i was not interested in that. In fact i just didn’t feel like doing anything.

We started serious drills on marching and at first i wasn’t finding it funny but i got along. Luckily my platoon commandant was among the nicest and most understanding unlike some platoons.

Today is Friday so Our Muslim brothers and sisters were allowed to go pray from 1 pm which meant free time for me.

Lectures started today , We had EFCC,  Security and Traditional lectures in which i can say i didn’t even listen. Firstly , there were no chairs sufficient for everyone , the tent provided was so hot . I and my wonderful friends had to borrow bench from our customer at mammy . It was boring , not many people listened.


I actually wanted to listen but the crowd was something else , I couldn’t see and how boring it started to feel. I gave that up. Some people had to sit on the floor. We were advised to buy nylon bags to use on the floor in case we don’t get seats.
We rounded up lectures by 1 pm. Muslims were allowed to go and pray while I headed towards mammy for lunch. Went back to my room , slept then woke up in the evening strolled round , still met some new people.Had dinner and went for the socials.
Tonight was our first socials. Miss hot legs. It was hilarious as we even ended at about 11 pm.




wow , today is the first day apart from yesterday hustling and bustling of registration. The beagle was sounded at 5 am. You can trust some over-sabi and over -know all people who started taking their bath from 2 am and in fact were waiting for the beagle self. smh.
As for me , i decided not to be bothered about all that . I went to a boarding school and also the bathrooms , spaces outside would be full so what was the point of me rushing . I just had my mouth washed , washed my face and dressed up for morning drills and meditations.
It wasn’t that bad. Today we were not yet according to platoons so i just took a good spot.

Meditations were held and drills started.Some people were still resuming camp and i was actually envying them
We were taught the nysc anthem in preparation for Tomorrow. In fact our state coordinator came around .
After morning sessions, we were allowed time to take our bath , and have breakfast .I quickly took my bath in one of the bathrooms that was clean before it gets messed up again. Moved on to mammy , had a good meal of indomie and rested a little before it was time for another session of drills on the parade ground.
We practiced important parade parts for tomorrows event like 3 happy cheers to the governor which is the part you raise your caps and salute etc.
People were still resuming at camp , so registration was in full progress. I couldn’t find some of my friends .
Later in the afternoon , i discovered that the camp officials didn’t disturb them because they were still putting on colored clothes in disguise of people who ere just resuming. So not to be the dull one , i also changed and joined her. (Dont be like that.)
While the others went for evening session , we were just around mammy and meeting other people.
To while away time , i went to paint my nails. But those people self can t do anything well .
I met this guy- Kayode and his friends. Kept me company and he disappeared. The long and short of the whole gist was that i escaped drills but i couldn’t do it again . Tomorrow is induction and swearing in ceremony to be a proper Otondo for 3 weeks .

I also had to fetch water down in case it finishes before i get there. Goodnight


Hello readers, I’m sure you have seen your placement/ state where you have been posted to .Congratulations to those who got their choice and Good luck to those who didn’t.

Below are the things you do not need in camp

Note: We have moved to a new site. So if you have any questions visit this link :UNNECESSARY THINGS PEOPLE TAKE TO NYSC ORIENTATION CAMP

  1. MATTRESS: Camp would provide that for everyone, so you don t have to take any there. It would be excess luggage and in most camps if you meet the wrong or maybe hungry (lol) officials it would be seized.
  2. CUTLERY: You might be surprised but yes, they seize them except spoons. Knives, fork and even metal spoons are seized because it is believed that otondo use them for negative things. ………… Read the rest of this entry


Hey people, today is Sunday . the first Sunday i  am spending in camp. i woke up early enough but at first didn’t feel like going to church . i braced up and decided to go. my friends were not ready early enough. also my top got torn so i had to look for something else to wear. to me it was like a sign not to leave but i just pushed that aside.

finally i and my friends were ready to leave for church , unfortunately we didn’t even know the location of the church. i would say we left aimlessly . there were different fellowships going on . There was  Deeper life, Redeemed  Winners , Anglican , Christ embassy ,Catholic e.t.c

we actually wanted redeemed but didn’t find it so we went to winners and by the time we got there service was over. too bad. we took communion and registered there. so i would say we just passed by church today. then we wen back to the hostel and straight up to mammi for breakfast.

i wore my short sexy shorts today , this time around not white but a black one. felt good to wear something apart from the usual whites we wear. today is a free day for all .Different people had time to themselves.


Football match was held today but i didn’t go . then i went to meet my friends , had dinner , charged my phone and when it was 10pm , the beagle was blown and i went back to my room.
