  1. The NYSC website has been down for days o! How do I know when to pick up my call up letter as an international student?

    Your favorite stalker! Help!

    1. Eek! You're right!

      I'm pretty sure you owe me some stories, so I'll spend some time deciding whether to answer you. In the meantime, don't read past this line...

      To all others: Start checking this Friday for your call-up letters. Although I'm pretty sure they'll be ready next week (say Wednesday or Thursday).

  2. NOOOOOO! Yes I do owe you stories :). Im mentally preparing my self for the journey to Surulere today around noon *sigh* My stories are coming dont worry... Im too nervous lol

  3. I went in yesterday to try and pick up my call up letter and it wasnt available... Im off to the place again in a bit...

  4. I was posted to OYO.

    1. Eeeeeek!

      *hides face in embarrassment* Where's Oyo State?

      You can switch it, I think. But it must be based on medical issues, from what I've heard.

  5. Just got back from picking up my letter. I arrived around 11:30 am. As always from the outside it dint seem so organized. There was nobody giving directions on where to queue up or any signs telling you where to actually go. I had to ask some people who were there. They were really strict with the international id as a form of identification. A friend of mines didnt have his but he was able to see his posting and would return on Monday with his passport. There was no electricity in the room we picked our letters and it was seriously kinda hot. In all it took me less than an hour because I was kind of socializing with people. Not exactly excited about my posting but I think I will be ok :-).

    1. Awww, you'll be fine. And yeah, Nigerians need to do something about posting proper signs (indoors and outdoors).

      I still dunno were Oyo state is, so I'm going to look for a Nigerian map.

  6. OYO state.. Iseyin Camp.. All I know about OYO is that Ibadan is in OYO state.. Havent been to Ibadan since 1999 or so... I hope to redeploy...
