Congratulations have been streaming in after a Nigerian man proposed to his fellow National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) member on their POP day.
The National Youth Service Corps is a program set up by the Nigerian government to involve Nigerian graduates in nation building and the development of the country.
One of the goals of the scheme is to further strengthen nationalism among Nigerian youths, and this lucky Nigerian man didn’t just partake in the one year mandatory youth service, but also found a partner during his time in the scheme.
The man identified as Nelson Ishike, took to Facebook to share his excitement of getting a “Yes” after proposing to his fellow corps member and girlfriend at their Passing Out Parade yesterday February 18.
According to him, he met his girlfriend at the Jigawa Orientation camp and they both served in same platoon and same Place of Primary assignment (PPA).
He also stated that he knew his search was over when he saw her. The Facebook user wrote;
“Same Camp, Same Platoon, Same PPA. When I saw her….I knew my search was over. I found my soul mate. NYSC gave me a wife”.
