Adeiye asserted that he knew the young lady and was taken aback by her assignment to the abattoir, suggesting that it might not be a suitable Primary Place of Assignment (PPA) for someone with a degree.
In the video, a young man was observed carrying a bucket filled with assorted meat portions, while cow legs and tails were arranged on a nearby table. As news of this unusual NYSC placement spread across social media, Nigerians flocked to various platforms to share their thoughts and opinions on the matter.
@theDamiDami said: “NYSC always does rubbish. They posted my guy to a church as an organist. An accountant!”
@Olurantowoseeni commented: “Might be laughable but it’s a good idea. The local business owners can gain a lot from an educated person…if they are willing to adapt.”
@iamrenike said; “This is insane!”
@niruha__ said; “She probably studied animal husbandry.”
@TAAdeiyer replied; “Even animal husbandry should get farm, worst case scenario. Vet science or animal husbandry how is it the same as cutting and selling meat in abattoir?”
@CathChisomsTwin said; “Smh NYSC is supposed to foster nation building, and the give the corp member needed work experience to help them kickstart their career. I don’t see how sending a corp member to an abattoir accomplishes any of the above. Wonder what the Corper’s CV will look like with it on it”
