NYSC Obinugwu Experience By: Willie J. Chidebe - July 30, 2013

I saw this story somewhere and i think you guys should check it out. i guess there was no paragraph in 2013...

 I graduated from the University of Benin, last year October, 2012. On that faithful day in sport complex when I received my posting letter, I did not read the content immediately, I was afraid of not being posted to the north, I have always wanted to go to Lasgidi(Lagos) to serve and with that great anticipation the probability of being posted to any other state increased the tension of not reading my posting letter. I walked down to the back of the building and I open and read the letter, low and behold uniben student will always put it this way” guy them change am for me” I saw IMO, and immediately my dream about going to lagos was shattered. The only encouragement I had left was, at least am not going to the north, Imo is peaceful at and I can still be posted to owerri. As corpers most of us always prefer being posted to a city or develop place, nobody wants to go to a village. Same scenario repeated itself when I received my place of primary assignment (ppa) posting letter, as it was addressed “ The Principal, Community Secondary School Obinugwu, Orlu L.G.A, Owerri, Imo State” only me tell myself say guy na village u de go so. Owerri was completely ruled out at this point, and immediately I started asking so many questions, what if there is no light in that place, no road, or even decent accommodation, and for some of us, guys can I see a fine babe in that village? The answers were not far fetched when I reported to the school. The village have good access road though it was a bit far from the lga headquarter, to my surprise they also do have light. There are few modern house and ancient ones too, the best building I first noticed was owned by one traditional king. It is a small village with some of its indigene living in cities and town. Their source of water is a bore hole installed in one building, and the water is being sold for N10 per keg (calculate am make you know how much from your alawi way the community chop). What all these thought me was that as human we can always adjust and adapt to some unfavorable conditions. Despite the odd experiences like using a pit toilet as compared to my water cistern at home and in school, the community was a very quiet place, a place of peace and tranquility, hospitable people, I was integrated into learning some of the domestic chores of people living in the country side. Farming activities, riding bicycle, and most of all learning igbo language. NYSC scheme in posting corpers to rural and urban area was not a bad ideal anyway; it gave me the opportunity to learn a lot from the people of this community. Some of us we will be spending almost the rest of our life in urban areas, this is the only opportunity we have in life in exploring this life time experience. I therefore want to encourage the set of corpers and corpers to be that will find themselves in this same scenario, I have just one advice for you and that is; feel free to explore that part of naija, believe me is real fun. Feel free to comment. CORPER WEE WEE WEE . … WAH O O OOO
