How to Serve as a Ghost Corper During NYSC Service Year
I have been running away from this topic for a long time because I am not totally in agreement with running away from NYSC service. I have got so many mails about this and I was not ready to change my mind until I got a call from someone who said I should just publish a post on this topic for Educational sake. So that people can have the idea, learn and also be able to educate others.
He actually has a good point. So I decide to do this for only educational purpose.
If you are thinking of Ghosting your service year or thinking of having the knowledge about what a Ghost Corper is, this article is your answer.
A Ghost Corper is someone who is not serving in any PPA but getting monthly allowances and will also get a NYSC Discharged certificate after.
Some people call them run away, some call them absenting Corpers. But they are popular called Ghost Corpers. Whatever they are call is not our problem. All you need to know is that they are very far away from their duty post. They are not even in their state of deployment not to talk of going to their Place of Primary assignment.
Let me give you an analogy: A Corp member deployed to Plateau State to serve his/her father land refused to stay in Plateau but chose to go to Lagos. No PPA, No CDS, No Clearance except on some occasion and yet they get paid and will collect their certificate at the end of the service year.
Did someone just say…’that is cool?’
Yes it is cool but not as easy as it seems or as fun as you might think.
Let’s pause and take a look at something.
Some of you are thinking being is an act of cheat, corruption and wickedness.
‘Why would some people be working day and night in a strange non conducive environment and some will just go back to their comforts and yet collect their allowance and also the certificate for doing nothing’
I understand you, I can feel it too. But before we place a tags on Ghost Corpers, let me give you 3 and half reasons why people operate as Ghosts throughout their service year. Most of them don’t just do it for fun or for no reason.
3 and Half Reasons Why People Operate as Ghost Corpers.
I call it 3 and half because the fourth reason is not worth it.
1. Jobs Or Other Official Assignments
Supposing you waited for a year or two before you were mobilized for NYSC. Suppose during the two year period of waiting, you got a very good Job due to some connections or whatsoever. While you were enjoying your work and earning good cash, NYSC call up letter came out. You took permission for 3 weeks from work to attend the orientation camp. Will you take permission for 11 months of service also? If am the owner of that company, I might get you arrested. 11 months no be beans.
So many people will have no choice than to Ghost their service year so as not to loose the Job at home. They leave their state of deployment and continue their work. They would have forfeited NYSC but they need the discharge certificate.
Marriage can sometimes also be the cause for this, especially among the females. Many of them have tried so hard during orientation camping to get deployed and relocated to where their hubbies and family resides but wasn’t successful. And because they have to be with their family, they may decide to completely ghost the service tinz
3. Health challenges can also make a Corper absent from their PPA. This is rare because if someone have a serious health Challenge, he or she must have been redeployed. But in case of sudden occurrences or maybe redeployment failed, Ghosting is another option.
And now the half….
4. Laziness and difficulty of some people to leave their comfort for service also make many want to serve as ghost corpers.
You see, it’s a half point indeed
Like I said from the beginning that am not totally in support of the idea of Ghost Corpers, but since this is just for educational or for people interested, I will advise you to pay close attention to this article so that you don’t hit a Soldier with a wheel barrow.
