The Abuja labour market was further bloated yesterday as corps members came out after three weeks of orientation at the National Youth Service Corps orientation camp in Kubwa.
The corps members were seen across Abuja, carrying with them their belongings as they tried to locate their places of posting for primary assignment.
Some of them who spoke with LEADERSHIP said they had to get to their places of primary assignment early to ensure that they do not get rejected after the organisations get the number of interns they need.
“We have to rush down to the offices, because it is going to be late soon. I want to see the place and present my letter to the office. I want to finish the business today, go home for the weekend and resume on Monday,” Chike Nduka, who said he was posted to the Ministry of Education said.
Another corps member, Chidimma Eze who looked visibly tired told LEADERSHIP that she had been posted to the Federal Capital Development Authority (FCDA) but was trying to locate a relation who she would put up with.
“I am tired. I have to go home and rest but first thing tomorrow morning, I will be going to FCDA to present my letter.”
Some female corps members who were seen clutching not just their bags but their babies as well told our reporter that coping with the babies in the orientation camp was a gruelling experience.
One of them, who identified herself as Martha, however said it was not much of a problem for her as her family members were always around on the camp to assist with the baby.
