Participating in camp can really help influence your place of primary assignment during NYSC orientation camp. Although it doesn’t guarantee you would be posted to the city, but at least it can influence the place you will be posted to.
You shouldn’t put all your chances at this actually. I have seen an assistance platoon coordinator posted to the village and an ordinary Corper who participated at nothing posted to the best place.
If you have an interest in becoming more active and social, you could join any of the groups below.
1. Quarter Quard: They are set of people that are trained to mount the quarter guard chamber, which is normally situated immediately after the gate while entering the camp.
Once you join this group, believe me, your posting to a better place is guaranteed.
They can either be posted to Barracks, Governors office, companies, sometimes they ask all of you to decide where you want just the way they did for us. You also get some stipends during opening ceremony and Closing Ceremony but not all camp does that.
2. Colla Party: They are the flag bearer, they are not more than 6-7 in number. If you find yourself into the group… You have upper chance to get good PPA
3. OBS (Orientation Broadcasting Service): They are in charge of broadcasting news within the camp and also responsible for coordinating night parties
4. Platoon Exco: If you are fortunate to be part of your platoon exco and you are well known by your platoon officer, you can influence your posting, though normally, the excos are all entitle for a good PPA.
5. Camp Band: Either you know how to drum or not, you can join this group. Joining them can also help in your posting.
6. Red Cross Team: Walahi, these people they enjoy, especially when you on duty, you won’t participate in the parade activities, yours is just to carry those that collapse on the parade ground and also assist the nurses at the camp clinic. If you know your way, you get be posted to a better place.
8. Theatre Art Troop: They have slots few of their members. This work out especially state that has many Villages like Sokoto, Taraba, Kastina, Kebbi etc. but if you join them and you are being shortlisted, you will be posted to town.
