In an attempt to encourage undergraduate students of tertiary institutions and prospective Corps members, the ‘Diary of National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), has been written and published by one of the Oyo state Corps members, Deborah Mustapha.
Mustapha, who is popularly called ‘Blogger D’ said the NYSC Diary is written to erase the mentality that the one year dedicated to serving one’s fatherland is actually not a waste of time, neither a year to hide out from job seeking.
“What triggered me to write the article was the comments people give during and after their service year. I couldn’t tell when I listened to the comments until I started serving last year November, and I realised that it’s not what people think or comment about. There is more to this NYSC year,” Blogger D stated.
According to Mustapha, the diary which will be released very soon contains the beginning and the end of NYSC.
She urged everyone, most especially the final year students and the prospective Corps members to read when it is finally released.
