Place Of Primary Assignment Palava

Shaking My Head!!!

How was your NYSC service year?Any Place of primary assignment palava?

Madam Korkus, my own palava was something else. I served in Lagos State and I was posted to an office somewhere in Ikeja, after communicating with the MD, I told him to reject me since the pay was not much and there was also the issue of accommodation to sort out.

So I applied for reposting and was sent to a school in Alakija but I did not like the place so I arranged with the principal to reject me even though they really needed corp members, I told the man I will recommend my friend that likes teaching and he agreed.

I acted smartly and started making researches online about
established and reputable schools with better prospects, I got the contact of schools in Lagos State from a directory so I started calling them but none of them wanted corp members, I sent several text messages but none replied except an old man who told me he had retired that the school should update their records, as if I will be the one to do it for them. He wanted to start toasting me o so I blocked him. I no get time with old men abeg.

Then a school in Satellite town finally replied my message and invited me to come with my hand-written application letter and CV by 7am the following day. Jesu! But oga, I am not looking for a job na, na NYSC I come do.
The next morning, I got to the school by 7a.m but the security man did not allow me inside the compound so I sat outside and waited for the man.
When I called the proprietor by 8a.m, he said he was on his way and came at past 9 a.m o. Imagine me waking up by 5 o'clock to prepare and wait for oga proprietor to come to work by 9, issorit. I still waited o, he told me to wait in a corner inside the premises and I was getting angry each passing minute.

Even an ordinary security man without a pass in English and Maths was disrespecting a corp member because of PPA so others were going in to see the man while I was regretting wetin carry me come sef.

Oga finally told the security man to bring me in, I gave him my letter and CV.
He told me to go that he will get back to me before the end of the day. Mo gbe! So I came all the way to submit CV ni and I spent seven hundred naira on transportation, so I left to wait for oga's call.

Monday to Wednesday, there was no call from the proprietor so I had to call him to know how far and he said I should come the next day by 7a.m. Haba na oga, 7a.m is too early but he ended the phone call. I started preparing again the following day and was in the school some minutes past 8a.m and oga was already in school directing some painters for a job so I waited.

He sent for me around 10a.m, I met lots of people in the office. He introduced the vice principal (academics) and other teachers to me that I was interested then requested I get my reposting letter to the school if I agree with their terms and conditions.

Oga what terms na, he said that

1. The school will not give me an accommodation.

2. I will be paid ten thousand naira.

3. I will be resuming work latest by 7.20am, failure to do so will mean deduction from my ten thousand naira and that I will be leaving school by 4p.m.

4. I will be teaching Economics from S.S.S 1 to S.S.S 3, Social Science and Home Economics from J.S.S 1 to J.S.S 3.

5. I must dress corporate, be diligent and hardworking.
Yimu!!! I said oga just kuku tell me you don't want because I can't make it by 
7.20a.m because my house is very far, you can't give me an
accommodation and the ten thousand naira is so little. I asked if he could increase it to 15 or 20 thousand naira, he refused saying NYSC is already paying me 20 thousand, so should I die because of that? Anyway, give me time to think about it.

He told me to return the paper that stipulates the rules and regulations governing the school and I left. Imagine the stress!

I went back to that old school at Alakija and the principal was happy to see me. My friend I recommended to that school was yet to resume because she was looking for a better place and I told the principal to accept me so I could start the necessary documentation and take some time to prepare myself. After two weeks of travelling home to get some things, I was ready and started teaching, even though the money isn't money, I'm happy I was needed there. I was able to organise extra lessons for the students where I was making extra little money, I no fit

Madam Stella, this NYSC thing is stressful and so many people are really frustrated if you don't have the necessary connections to get a good place of primary assignment. May God help us in this country with very corrupt people!
