Memoirs of a ‘Lazy Korfa’


11 in stock

Though this is only the first day of camp, as at 2:30pm or there about, I am already number ONE THOUSAND TWO HUNDRED AND FOURTY SIX! As if that’s not bad enough, we get marched over to the registration hall to get registered and have it over with and….wait for it……they are registering corper number TWO HUNDRED AND SOMETHING! (I didn’t care to know what the ‘something’ was. It was not important.).


Even if you do not have a clue about about the Nigerian National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) scheme, you will discover, in this entirely relatable story, what can happen when one person ventures into the amazing, challenging unknown – and the strange adventure that unfolds. This is a witty and refreshing recollection of life within the four walls of a Nigerian National Youth Service (NYSC) Orientation Camp that would also resonate with anyone who has ever been through the experience. Memoirs of a ‘Lazy Korfa’ is loosely based on the journal Tunmise kept during her three weeks at the NYSC orientation camp in Ungogo, Kano State. It gives an honest, eye-opening and true account of camp life and events as they unfolded during September of 2004.
