You don’t need to fight me on this…. Am only talking from my own personal and humble experience on the camp.
“Camp Abia: The first camp in Nigeria”, as it is popularly called, is really one of the camps to be for the compulsory three weeks Nysc orientation course. Not just because she is the first on the list of NYSC camp, but she also possess some beautiful features that it’s worth talking about.
Before i went for service, trust me, i have heard lots of terrible stories from many people. Even from those that have never being to the gate of any camp. They told me a book-full of different “Faboos”. lol….
I heard about the terrible lifestyle on camp; the maltreatment corpers receive from camp soldiers; the
sickness and lots more. Am very sure you heard the same stories too, or perhaps you will soon hear them.
My deployment to Abia state did not give me enough opportunity to confirm if those stories are really true, but what i know is that Camp Abia is the contrary of it all. So don’t be annoyed if you passed through all those horrible experiences as we were told. Let me give my brief reasons why i will recommend Abia state for any prospective corp member to consider including in their 3 choice of Service.
- Perfect Location
Yes, i mean “drink”. Camp Abia water is completely drinkable and free of germs. Even if you don’t have enough money on camp, the camp is able to completely sustain you in terms of food and water.
You are completely save from them all. While on Camp Abia, you can sleep with your two eyes closed without the fear of a thing.
Camp officials on the camp treats the prospective corp members as their own children. They won’t permit maltreatment from any soldier or camp officials.
