@theDamiDami said: “NYSC always does rubbish. They posted my guy to a church as an organist. An accountant!”

@Olurantowoseeni commented: “Might be laughable but it’s a good idea. The local business owners can gain a lot from an educated person…if they are willing to adapt.”

@iamrenike said; “This is insane!”

@niruha__ said; “She probably studied animal husbandry.”

@TAAdeiyer replied; “Even animal husbandry should get farm, worst case scenario. Vet science or animal husbandry how is it the same as cutting and selling meat in abattoir?”
@CathChisomsTwin said; “Smh NYSC is supposed to foster nation building, and the give the corp member needed work experience to help them kickstart their career. I don’t see how sending a corp member to an abattoir accomplishes any of the above. Wonder what the Corper’s CV will look like with it on it”
@adeshi_agba said; “Had a lawyer friend who was posted to a nursery school. Lol. Imagine been called to bar and then going to do A for apple. Bro wan craze … Twas funny shaa”
