The higher it goes the COOLER it becomes
[The NYSC Chronology from the Literary Shrine (Day 17) ]
Saturday, 10th December, 2016 became my last Saturday in Camp. After all the stress, I’m having only 4 days to leave here for my ‘Primary Place of Assignment’ (PPA) in an unknown place in an undisclosed Local government in IMO State.
The higher it goes the cooler it becomes. The LAW of Geography they said.
Today was our Carnival. It was the best program to be organized by NYSC national and IMO State NYSC Chapter. It was so colorful. The parade ground became a mixture of masks, weird dress codes and all kinds of ‘sensitive body parts’ exposure of both sexes in camp.
It was like unleashing a caged dog to attack an intruder when he has had the urge and hunger for blood and bones_
To an extent, Corps members coördinated themselves to the utmost best of their knowledges. Bearing in mind the ‘uproar’ that hospitalized almost 3 persons in camp yesterday from the uniform men who keep seeing us as ‘bloody civilians’.
During the evening hours, no military, police, Man O War or camp officials bothered any of us to come out for parade.
We were as weak and feeble as BlackBerry batteries after the Carnival that lasted between 10a.m through 3pm. An evergreen memory to us all.
I slept between 4pm through 6.12pm in peace like a baby who has gotten enough breast milk from the Mother.
The most wonderful moment of the day was when our ‘ATM’ were announced. We queued to get the cards and later change our various passwords to ease transaction. I think everyone is now ready to leave the camp on Wednesday, 14th December, 2016.
