4 NYSC Camp Rules Corps Members Don't Make Fuss About (Read Details)

A Platoon leader is always the one in front.

Corps members always complain about almost all camp rules, but readily accept these ones without making any fuss about them.

National Youth Service Corp orientation camp is a regimented environment full of rules that are upheld by soldiers, Man O war officials and Police officers.

In the face of these uniform men, you can not afford to mess up. Even if you do with Police and the Man' O war guys, you dare not try to look the soldiers in the face, they will impress you with how well they use Koboko.

These men's job is to make sure all corps embers keep to the NYSC rules and regulations through out their three weeks  orientation programs.
Because of the so many rules that govern the camp, corps members often find themselves violating one rule or the other out of exuberance.
Breaking some of these rules could attract trial at the camp court. However, there are subtle to that corp members easily comply with and don't bother to violate.

 Light Out:

Every activity in NYSC camp nationwide is brought to an end at 10pm when the beagle sounds for light out. Once the beagle blower comes around to announce light out, soldiers move around to ensure all corps members are in their hostels. Whoever is caught outside the hostel is punished.

Standing still for Nigeria:

Another rule that is religiously observed in the camp has to do with paying respect to Nigeria when she is going to bed at 6pm.
This in all camps is a moment of no movement when Corps members are expected to stand still wherever they are once the trumpet is blown to lower the flag. Any corp member caught moving while this is being observed could find himself in trouble with the soldiers.

Wearing 6/7 for swearing in ceremony.

The swearing-in ceremony is usually done in the first week of the orientation camp opening. This ceremony requires all corps members to wear their NYSC attire which entails the cap, crested vest, khaki trouser, belt, socks and jungle boot, except the Khaki shirt.

White shirt on parade ground:

There is nothing required of all corp members to wear to the parade ground than their white shirts and shorts. The all-white attire is for the parade ground and the NYSC rule does not permit you to wear anything on it. Not even your Khaki shirt.

Of all the orientation camp rules, the bulk of corp members hardly grumble about these four. They readily accept them and make no fuss about these rules.
