We learnt that Call Up letter will be out tomorrow. And quickly to avoid unnecessary mistakes, Wewould want to give you some tips on how to package yourself to the Orientation camp so that you don’t get confused all the time.
So by this time tomorrow, you would probably have been deployed and you would have known where you are going to. To give you a head start and you don’t keep asking what next.
Here are 10 Things to Do after You Get Your Call-Up Letter
1. All You Need to Print your call up letter is the email you used in Registering at the NYSC portal and your Password. (I doubt if NYSC will send your call-up to your email).
2. Print the Original copy, (twice) make 5 photocopies as you would need to submit some duplicates at camp. (MAKE Photocopies of All your documents because it’s expensive in camps)
3. Rearrange your documents. What you need to take with you are : CALLUP LETTER, GREEN CARD,
STATEMENT OF RESULT OR ORIGINAL CERTIFICATE, PASSPORT, ID CARD and others
NUMBER, please make sure your statement of result carries your school stamp and not a fake one.
4. Put all these documents in a water resistant file and seal properly. DO NOT LAMINATE YOUR
GREEN CARD OR CALLUP LETTER.
5. Pack few stuffs please. Don’t give yourself unnecessary stress. Basic things to pack should be YOUR WHITES,WHITE SHORT,WHITE TENNIS SHOES, TOUCH,TORCHLIGHT, MOSQUITO NET,ONE
OR TWO CASUAL WEARS, SOAP, ANTI-MALARIA DRUGS, BED SPREAD, DETERGENT, CREAM, POWER BANK, CASH AND ATM CARD, SOCKS, ETC…
You don’t need much loads. Because after camp, you are given 3 weeks terminal leave from your
PPA. Which you are go home and get set for your primary assignment.
6. Find people you are posted to same state, state create a WhatsApp group and talk about when to
Leave and how to go. If anyone suits your schedule you both can meet up at the Bustop and move. That is why this group is created. Once you get your call-up letter. Indicate the state you are posted to here and meet up with people of same state.
7. PLEASE check your date of deployment very well to avoid mistakes.
8. Safety, a lot of Corp members have gone due to road accident and the likes. You really don’t have
to blame NYSC. Our transportation system is messed up. Look carefully at the bus you are to
Travel with and know the kind of driver that is going to drive you and MOST ESPECIALLY PRAY TOO. Prayer always work.
9. Be happy and positive. The country economy cannot decide your happiness. You don’t have to think about thousands of unemployed youths out there. You do not have to think about your past. This is another phase of your life and you should face it with courage. You are a man. This is your chance to prove you can be a positive change.
