This thing called NYSC: TIPS and items Needed

NYSC is an abbreviation for National Youth Service Corps, which is more or less a compulsory service for Nigeria youth why I said it more or less with the poor and the average citizen is mandatory for them but the rich and the Rich are exempted from it, yeah I know SUE ME but everyone knows it true but no one want to admit it.

If you are certain you will not work with any companies or organisations that require NYSC, then you might skip it. But remember the government can move Mad at any time.

As someone who had experienced the various stage of services back in 2017, I think I am more in a position to give out an idea and what you need, I am planning on making this post into two – three-section due to the length.
