After Philip's First Degree
These pictures recapture events following my
B.A., particularly those surrounding my
participation in the National Youth Service
Corp scheme (NYSC) (1982 - 83).
With friends during the National Youth Service Corps
(NYSC) orientation program after graduation.  (The
NYSC is the local equivalent of the Peace Corps
programme).  We camped in Shagamu, former
Ogun State, at the onset of the program.
A pose with some of the natives of Igbesa (sitting
third and fourth from left to right).  The first two
men, from left to right, were fellow Youth Corpers.  
I am squatting in the foreground.
Still at Igbesa during my NYSC.  Here, I am returning
home for the day after teaching at the college.
With friends during my MA graduation ceremony,
University of Calabar, 1985

crash - may his soul Rest in Perfect Peace)
