His usage of English, however, left netizens in stitches.

Apart from the poor punctuation evident throughout the letter, Idris’ English was far below average. Spelling errors also marred the poorly put-together letter.

Idris communicated in the letter that he was newly married, was running a business and could not get decent accommodation in Abuja.

A netizen identified as Blessing Dike shared Idris’ letter in the Facebook group NYSC BATCH A B C, and netizens trolled him.

“It’s very possible.

“I’ve seen a lot of graduates who can’t express themselves in simple and correct English, I wonder how they managed to pass out of universities and polytechnics.”

“And they will still get good jobs after service, it’s their type that has plenty of connections, na them get this country.”

Female corps member relocates to the UK

Meanwhile, Wothappen previously reported that a female corps member had shared a video as she relocated to the UK.

The words “To serve Nigeria with all my strength” came on screen at the start of her clip as she was dressed in her NYSC uniform.

Seconds into the video, a part shows her on the way to an international airport. She also filmed herself while aboard a plane. The lady said she would later explain the process she followed to relocate abroad. She added that it was very difficult.
