The NYSC scheme is woven around several love stories amongst serving members and sometimes even with officials. Many of them found temporary love but several others have unexpectedly ended up with their dream life partners in the course of serving their fatherland in remote locations. Marriages between corpers must be sweet music to the ears of the founding fathers of the scheme who dreamt of a more united and integrated Nigeria where state of origin paled into insignificance.
Perhaps the best family stories have been served by married women who sometimes fail to resist the temptation of being close to their babies during the service year. A few of them have even summoned the courage to not only take along their children to Camp but also to dress them up in miniature service garb! For them, NYSC is the best place to celebrate motherhood.
