The Governor of IMO State Swore in the NYSC Batch B Corps members
Parade was gradually dying down like the urge of an 80 year-old man towards sexual intercourse.
We were split into our various platoons to commence activities within our platoons and focus on platoon’s development.

In another development, Corps Members were briefed
“For primary assignment, corps members shall be posted based on discipline, requests by corps employers and need of the State. However, in view of the new posting policy of the scheme, corps members are not to be posted to multinational organizations, oil companies, banks and private organizations.
After five (5) hours plus in the hot sun, nothing was shared to us. No soft drinks or snacks. But the dignitaries in attendance were given different bags loaded with what will gladden the stomach and keep the effective worms at rest for the rest of their existence.
