Been a Min.

Hey Big Sistas,

It has truly been a minute I thought I would be able to take pics of Abuja blog some more before camp. Boy was I wrong and wrong about a few things smh&lol.  First up I was deployed to Edo state and not Abuja wait there’s a story. We had ppl working on  the deployment so I wasn’t worried cause Mom is pretty high no bribes needed :D.  So we we’re in Delta and I was so anxious to return to Abuja to pick up the call up letter and report to camp. I went to the secretariat and there was no line cool. The woman attending to me said oh you’re from Delta you will be close to home am like okay whatever that means. Then the next person was like ahhh Edo you will enjoy small I got worried they gave me the letter I read it and was in denial. Mom was outside I said Mom this says Edo we called the person and they said all the 5 ppl they were trying to deploy to Lagos or Abuja were all deployed to other places too. He was like sorry I didn’t have a choice I got to Abuja on Sunday this was Monday and I had to report to Okada, Edo by Wednesday.  I did small shopping with Mom on Tuesday and left early on Wednesday. Camp was a nightmare but we survived I mean we used out houses for crying out loud. Mom was laughing and was angry when I told her she said when she did hers they we’re in a institute and had plumbing. Anyway those 3 weeks went fast and I made friends as you will see from my pics I attached. I applied for medical redeployment in camp and it was not approved. Mom went to headquarters and got help to redeploy me to Abuja :-). In the mean time I had to report to Edo thank God they posted me to Benin City and my assignment was  Ministry of Health Edo state Commissioner’s office. Wait o it gets better smh. The commissioner wanted to accept us but didn’t know the new law that all health related professionals must be posted to rural areas. For like 5 weeks she was delaying our rejection letter that would free us to get re-posted within Benin City. All this time I spent with one of my friends whom I was close to in camp . Most of the days were spent sitting at the commissioner’s office in vain. The evenings were even worse until I decided to start watching football with my friend at a bar .  After all this I was finally redeployed but my letter stated Lagos -__- lucky I was told to report to HDQ in Abuja were it was settled and finally today April 24, 2012 I have become a FCT corper . When I was leaving Edo this past weekend I felt bad leaving all the friends I had made. The good news is that Grandmum cooked some good owo that eased the pain ;-). I probably have more to say but you can imagine trying to put it all in order is a pain. This weekend is a funeral for one of our auntie’s on the Mosheshe side of the family. It’s sad I only knew her briefly but she really was good to me anytime she saw me I was blessed financially. She lost her battle with breast cancer which she fought for 10 years.  Anyway I am happy to be able to say goodbye I thought NYSC would keep me busy the whole week. Alright they just took light and since I refused to buy a mac I can’t read my keyboard lol. Honestly though Apple is trying to win me over with their great customer service lol. My regards to the fam Oro hope to see pics from the vacation, and Osa hope all is well blog too so we hear from you too. Now I will have stable internet I will try to blog more often. Oh and yes once settle in I will post pics from Abuja.

Your lil bro
