Tips For Prospective Corp Members
1Once you get your callup letter, please make sure it's printed in
coloured and run multiple photocopies..
2. Take your time to read each and every details in the callup
carefully, please don't glance or scan through it.. Take your time and
read every details in the callup.
3. The DATE OF DEPLOYMENT will determine if you fall in stream 1 or 2.
Since according to NYSC timetable stream 1 are meant to resume camp on
27th of April.. So if you see 27th of April on yours that means you
are stream 1.any other date aside that means your stream 2.. Some
prospective corpers make the mistake of not checking the date on the
callup and run to camp, while some will assume they are stream2 cos
they registered late during registration.. Please note to check your
date of deployment.
4. There are basic instructions in the callup letter, you should
adhere strictly to.. Please do so.
5.CHECK your STATE of Deployment and try to get other fellows or
corpers posted to same state.. Especially if it's a far distance
states like the Norths and rest depending on your location. Make
friends in this group that's posted to same state and you guys can
decide if you will go together.
6.You are free to be in Camp a day to the DATE OF DEPLOYMENT. you can
go to ease the stress that might take place the next day..the soldiers
will let you in.
7.Pack lighter loads please don't pack the whole house especially the
ladies,you ain't going to your husband's house .it's just 3 weeks camp
add one or two casual wears.. No need for pots,stoves,etc
8.Don't Bring in extra khaki into the camp,its against the law . if
