A female corps member, Ms. Paschaline Ifeoma, has gifted self a car as a gift to mark conclusion of the compulsory one-year National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) programme, CAMPUS GIST reports.
CAMPUS GIST gathered that Ms. Ifeoma, a Batch ‘B’ corps member from the Southeast, who passed out July 16, served in the nation’s capital, Abuja.
According to her, she wasn’t just a corps member but a farmer, film maker, fish seller and office administrator – where she apparently made her money.
“I be ordinary corper who is a farmer, a film maker, a fish seller and an office admin!,” Ms. Ifeoma told CAMPUS GIST in an interview on Friday.
Ms. Ifeoma, who was however silent on how long it took her to raise money for the 2008 Mazda CX9, said she never depended on the monthly stipends from the federal government all through her service year.
Ifeoma said she had plenty to eat and share – as she never lacked – including sharing palliatives to people during the coronavirus pandemic.
“See eh, in this my “CORPERship”, God didn’t let me suffer or beg for bread.. instead, I gave to many, put food on people’s table even during the pandemic!
“I only witnessed LIFTING UP where others saw a casting down.
“A lot of people asked, ‘YOU NA CORPER?’…
“Yes oo, I be ordinary corper who didn’t have to sit around waiting for the governments miserable 19,800 allowance before its increase to 33k!.
“I’ve never seen a better yesterday… Thank you God for always!.”
On her next phase of life, having concluded her service year, Ms. Ifeoma simply said, “NYSC pass out is not a next phase for me ‘cos I witnessed a NEXT PHASE in my life with each breaking day and witnessing God’s amazing grace in all that concerns me.”
The visibly elated Ifeoma christened her brand new car, a Mazda CX9, 2008 model “Passy-B” – apparently coined out from (NYSC) Batch ‘B’.
“This RED baby is a gift from ME to ME on my POP and she shall be called “PASSY-B’,” she added.
