NYSC: My s€×vice
As I dey wait for Juliet, I kon dey contemplate
whether to drop the plan. Plenty questions just
dey flow for my head: What if person catch as we
dey comot? What if we come back late? What if
any staff begin find Juliet during break (because,
na heavy crime for any student to comot from
school compound without permission).
As I won change my mind, I see Juliet for door:
“Sir, I’m ready. Let’s go.”
I look her innocent face, look her small pointed
br-ast:s. She dey smile. Na wa oh, God abeg na
onto you I commit my spirit o. I stand up from
“Ok. Be smart. You will go ahead of me and act
like you’re alone. When you get outside the gate
successfully, enter a keke going to kings-road and
tell the driver to wait, then I’ll come and join
“I will be a few steps behind you”
She begin waka dey go the school gate area. You
need to see how Innocent wey this girl dey waka.
If no be say she wear school uniform I for mistake
her for angel wey God send down from heaven to
come warn us of our sins.
Na wa oh, God abeg give me wisdom to use follow
naija girls. If to say king Solomon jam naija
babes, them for show am say sense dey pass sense.
Brothers, make una shine eye o, if not plenty of
una go marry confirm rubbish.
I stand for door dey watch and wait make Juliet
waka go front small.
After she don waka like 30 steps, I kon close my
staff room door, do sign of the cross then kon
begin follow Juliet for back.
As I dey waka dey go, I dey look whether Juliet
go succeed to cross the school gate. I dey try
focus on her but different students just dey
disturb me with different talks like:
“Sir, its break time come and buy something for
“Sir, yesterday you promised to buy me something
but you didn’t”
“Sir, where are you going to?”
Which kind devils dem be this na. Then wan spoil
my prison-break mission abi wetin. Some of them
they try drag me go back sef. I just dey try give
them small small excuse as I dey waka dey go and
my eyes still dey on Juliet.
As Juliet reach gate, gateman call her. Chei!
Fvck up Don dey be dat o!. No no no, wait ….
she kon waka comot for gate. Hurray!!. Oluwa
must be involved. I dey wonder wetin she tell
that wicked gateman…. anyway na she kno her
I no fit ever waste my time say I dey study any
naija girl character. Their character need special
course for university to study am.
I start to waka fast so that I fit join her for the
keke-napep wey she go enter dey wait for me. As i
don waka near gate, I hear person shout my
I look the direction. Oh no!, which kind winch be
this for this cool afternoon. The person wey they
call me na Mr eke. Na him be the school academic
officer and him office dey close to the gate area.
Wetin this man dey call me for na?. At this time,
I no need anybody to call me… not even Obama.
I enter office go greet the enemy of progress.
“Corper, you have been hiding from me”
“No sir, I’ve been really busy.”
“Where are you heading to?”
“I want to go and get something in town”
“Ok. When you come back, come and see me. I
want us to discuss a little project”
I waka comot. I purposely dey run from Mr eke
because the man na ga:y. The first days wey dem
post me come the school, we been dey close. But I
kon notice say him dey always touch my laps and
do some kind suspicious play wey I no dey like.
One day, him kon say him wan kon visit me for my
house because him wife and children travel and
say him dey lonely for house. See this idi:-ot
sha. Na that day I cancel everything about am.
See school wey fresh girls plenty, dey beg for
s€×vicing naim this fo®l dey chase him fellow man.
As I reach outside gate, I no see Juliet. I try
look in,side some keke wey park left and right I
still no see her.
I dey wonder, confusion just full my head.
Small time, one keke just drive come my side, I
bin wan hala the keke man for reckless driving but
the sweet voice wey I hear calm my brain:
“Sir, come in,side”
I look in,side see Juliet. She Don pull her school
shirt, na black Polo she wear. Correct girl! At
least she don camouflage herself small. As the
keke man dey drive us, I just hold her hand for
back dey smooch her palm. She look me kon smile.
I just wan use that one take warm up her spirit
make she know say today na kukere day. Keke
stop us for my street den we waka front go in,side
As we enter my compound, everywhere dey scanty
and quiet. Everybody Don go hustle to find their
daily bread and feed their belle. Me na food for
my p—k wey I go find, and I Don carry am come.
We waka enter my corridor then I begin open my
As I dey open my door, I dey hear small
funny sound from one of my neighbours room…
