NYSC Anthem Lyrics

Below is the NYSC Anthem Lyrics;

Youth obey the clarion call

Let us lift our nation high

Under the sun or in the rain

With dedication and selflessness

Nigeria is ours, Nigeria we serve.

Members, take the great salute

Put the nation first in all

With service and humility

NYSC for the noble youths

Make Nigeria a great nation.

Far and near we come to serve

And to build our fatherland

With oneness and loyalty

NYSC for unity

Hail Nigeria, our great nation.

Youth obey the clarion call

Let us lift our nation high

Under the sun or in the rain

With dedication and selflessness

Nigeria is ours, Nigeria we serve.


What Next After NYSC Camp?

A lot of people (Corp members, undergraduates and even people who are neither Corp member or undergraduate) are asking this particular question!

Here today, I will give you three things that are the next things to do after NYSC camp!

After the NYSC Orientation camp for 21days (three weeks), your platoon officer will give you your posting letter. Your posting letter will tell you where you are going to carry out your national assignment!

NYSC Anthem Lyrics

After the NYSC orientation camp, some people will travel back to their homes, some to their places of primary assignment and some will just be stranded.

I will advise you not to travel immediately after NYSC camp unless you have been relocated to another state.

Here are the things to do and next steps to take after NYSC orientation camp:

1. Report to your PPA

What is PPA? 

PPA is an acronym for Place of Primary Assignment. It is where you are assigned to carry out your national service.

So, the first thing to do after NYSC camp is to go to your Place of Primary Assignment (PPA) but if you get relocated while in camp, then go to the NYSC state secretariat in the new state to relocate you for documentation.

However, if you can’t meet up to report to your PPA, you can lodge in corpers’ lodge or any religious body corpers lodge, and report the following day in the morning.

Remember to collect your posting letter as you will report to your PPA with it! Without it, you can’t do anything! 

NYSC Anthem Lyrics

Your PPA may accept or reject you! It will be written on the detachable part of the letter if they accept or reject you and from there you will take the document the employer gives you to your Local Government Inspector (LGI) for documentation. LGI Contact will be written on your posting letter.

Hope you understand? 

Always have an extra copy of any document with you! Make one photocopy of your posting letter before taking it to your PPA.

2. Report to your LGI Office

I have mentioned this in number 1 up there! After reporting to your PPA, no matter what the decision of the employer is, you must take the letter back to your LGI for necessary documentation! Like I said, the employer may decide to accept or reject you, either way you must report to your Local Government Inspector LGI as well!

You can also submit the letter to the NYSC zonal office as well, it depends on the distance you are to cover the two places. It is advisable to submit it to where it is close to you! Well, it all depends on your choice!

If you are rejected at your PPA, it is either your LGI or Zonal inspector repost you to another PPA or you find a place yourself!

Please, if you are rejected at your PPA, do not do the next step until you find another PPA!

3. Enjoy your 2-weeks leave

After completing step 1 & 2 up there, you can now travel to meet your family for the two weeks leave given to corps members after Camp.

Also, you may decide not to travel back home. It is all your choice! Two weeks you’ve got!

Also, you will have to write and submit a leave application letter to the NYSC state coordinator through your LGI. Always do this when you have something to do out of your PPA state. It is very essential that your Supervisor knows.
