Lagos Encounters


Disclaimer: The encounters may not be so great but Lagos is a great place. This post is not to bash Lagos and its people but simply to share some encounters I’ve had in Lagos especially as a sort of newbie.

NYSC was definitely an interesting year for me and the first time that I can say I truly experienced Lagos. I properly experienced Lagos transportation, dealt with agberos/area boys and went to the market randomly. From that year alone, I have a lot of stories.

NYSC Essentials

This post is beneficial to anyone going to camp.

I should have written this sooner. Before camp, I was so excited. Unlike some people, I wanted to experience EVERY bit of camp. I ordered my socks, shoes, shirts and shorts from 1500 Naira. They have great customer service and are quick to resolve any issues plus it made my life easier. The market may be cheaper alternative.

Here are the essential items that you’ll need for camp:

Camp was a great experience. Some claim it’s because it was Lagos. Compared to the stories I heard, Lagos camp was definitely better than some.

Happy New Year!

Happy new year everyone!

My first post of 2015. With the way I’ve been moving about, I haven’t had the time to write a post and when I do get the time, my brain is too tired. I am yet to write about Law school clearance, call to bar and my time at Camp (posts to come soon). Yes! I can brag that I stayed at camp throughout minus the one day I was at Abuja to enrol at the Supreme Court. Some ran but I stayed. Some got an exemption because they had to leave for call to bar. I thought I would be one of those people until I saw in my letter that my camp would start after call to bar.

This NYSC business is not funny.

NYSC Registration

I have been in education for most of life and heaven knows I need experience. I can’t wait to start working and hopefully that will be soon. I can complain (even though I don’t see it as complaining but as commenting on things that I don’t like). I am somehow looking forward to working long hours. It’s better for me to be occupied than for me to be idle and unfortunately I think I like a bit of stress. As I am now a qualified legal practitioner, a fact I’m still coming to terms with, the next phase in my moving to Nigeria journey is Youth Service.
