Corpers Wee ooo!

Waking up with the call of the clarions was a mixed feeling for me; sometimes I was excited, other times the opposite, especially whenever I felt tired and have not rested enough. Part of what I looked forward to in the morning was that opportunity to sing the NYSC NATIONAL ANTHEM loud and clear with fun.

The NYSC rules and regulations include reciting the anthem every morning at the orientation camp and other gatherings of the NYSC. For prospective corps members, it’s an advantage learning and understanding the NYSC ANTHEM even before you step into the NYSC orientation camp. And in this post, I will show you exactly how the lyrics go and how to sing them.

Before we dive in…

What is the full meaning of NYSC?

NYSC stands for Nigeria Youth Service Corps. The National Youth Service Corps is a scheme set up by the Federal Government of Nigeria to involve Nigerian graduates in the nation’s building and the development process of the country.

When was NYSC established?

NYSC was established on the 22nd of  May 1973 as an avenue for the reconciliation, reconstruction, and rebuilding of the nation after the civil war. The scheme was established based on decree No. 24 that stated that the scheme was created “with a view to the proper encouragement and development of common ties among the youths of Nigeria and the promotion of national unity”

Here’s the official NYSC ANTHEM lyrics
 1st stanza
“Youths obey the clarion call
Let us lift our nation high
Under the sun or in the rain
With dedication and selflessness
Nigeria is ours, Nigeria we serve.
2nd stanza
Members, take the great salute
Put the Nation first in all
With service and humility
NYSC for the noble youths
Make Nigeria a great nation.
3rd stanza
Far and near we come to serve
And to build our fatherland
With oneness and loyalty
NYSC for unity
Hail Nigeria, our great nation.”
Please note that the 1st stanza is mostly recited in all formal gatherings (both within and outside the camp) for the Youth Corps.
