People you will meet in camp during orientation camping


As a prospectives corps members, you are going to meet these different set of people in your various camps.

1. Platoon officers: these are soldiers that are going to be in charge of platoons. When you get to the camp, you are going to be divided into platoons. The soldiers in your platoon are the one to drill you in the parade ground. They will teach you how to match (quick match, slow match, left and right Matches ).
2.  The slapsticks:  These are extremely funny ones, they are mostly the Edos, especially the warri speaking tribes. They always have something to say to get people’s ribs cracking.

You will never see them been serious for once, all they do is find someone or something to make fun of.
They never get tired of talking. Don’t bother confronting them for anything because you will end up as their topic and have so many persons laughing at you.

3. Error shooters: These are the otondos that always get things wrong on the parade ground. After being corrected severally, they still get confused.

You see them turning to the right at the command of ‘left turn’. When others are at Attention, that’s when they have their hands behind at Ease. Their hands will never rhyme with others during quick match and when they halt, their legs always bangs last.
They are the set of people that still hang their ‘head dress’ in the air even after the completion of the 3 hearties to the Governor.
4. The Oliver Twists:  this category of people can ‘beg for Africa’, borrowing is their calling,  they can beg to borrow your destiny.  They never possessed anything of their own instead indulge in the habit of borrowing every possible thing from you, and then you will have to beg before they return it.

If you check it out, these set of people lived in school hostel, they  are used to the hostel lifestyles, so they never bothered to come with basic needs with the assurance of getting it from others.

It’s when you just finished locking your box and set to go out that they will come and be like; ‘bros abeg I need toothpaste’, ‘ pls give your spoon, ‘ do you have purified water there?  ‘abeg I fit use your towel? ‘bros I go like borrow your comb’,… and also they are never with ‘change’ …always asks for N20 to buy purified water.

They already exhaust their money to Mami market at the first week of Orientation. They know all the timetable for each day meals

6. Shunters: These kind of people will try as much as possible to get you annoy. You have been standing under the sun for hours and you see them coming from nowhere to join the long line up at the front, especially when camp commandant what to make an announcement .

8. Do-nothing members: these set of people never participate in anything. You begin to wonder if were forced to be in camp. They hardly go for parade and lectures and always complain about the Nysc scheme being a waste of time.

You will always find them laying on their bed in the room even after the soldiers has chased everyone out. They have their drugs and fake medical reports to cover up.

9. The Old boys: These people don’t want to be left out of the fun in camp, so they leave their children and wives at home to take part in the orientation.
They do every possible thing not to look old specifically their ‘skin’ hairstyle. The old ladies among them will as much as possible to used MaryKay powder so that they will not look old. They are the quite type they don’t want be noticed.
10. The Noisy : these are the noisy kind of people. These are the set of ‘otondos’ who cannot enter their hostel without making a noise. They cannot be in the hostel without having their voice raised or chatting out with one argument or the other and forcing their way into any loud conversation.
