Open Letter to Outgoing Corps Members – Here’s Your Reality Check

FAVOUR MARKET OR LABOUR MARKET?

My humble NYSC letter goes : Dear Ajuwaya, the passing out parade is not just a rendezvous with government officials. It is actually a farewell ceremony. From now on, you are directly responsible for every penny you will earn.

Your effort will determine how soon your allawee will be replaced with salary. By now, you must have understood that there is no free lunch anywhere; not even in Freetown. If the government could post you to a ‘strange land,’ keep you under stringent rules and subject you to laborious works before you could earn 19800 naira, you should imagine what the labour market would have in its coffer. As a matter of fact, the labour market isn’t smiling at all but the good news is, some people are smiling there and some are even laughing.
