Nigerians have taken to social media to react to a post of a member of the National Youth Service Corp (NYSC) invigilating an exam for military officers.
Naija PR took to Twitter and shared a photo of a male corp member taking on the role of an invigilator while soldiers were writing an exam.
The date and location of the said examination, was however not disclosed, so it is unclear how recently the photo was taken.
The young man could be seen holding a big envelope which probably contains the exam questions and answer booklets.
He maintained a position that suggested he was walking round the exam hall and keeping a close eye on the officers who wore their official uniform.
Sharing the image, Naija PR wrote; ”Can your PPA ever?”
It sparked a plethora of comments from Nigerians on the microblogging platform, most of which were hilarious.

@drjeff60; I served at NDA and we do help in marking their exam papers. These guys only know the military skills but when it comes to academics just forget it.
@wambai17; I think is a matter of discipline, (from the Military guys or Cardets) and a courage (from the Invigilator). Know that once you are in that Gate called NDA there is Seniority and discipline. The man there, is standing on someone’s command, May be the Commandant

In other NYSC-related news, last year, the Director-General, Brig. Gen Shuaibu Ibrahim, said that corps members can be mobilised for war if need be because they are part of the national defence policy of Nigeria.
He made the statement Channels TV’s Sunrise Daily Programmed while reacting to moves to scrap the scheme.
Ibrahim noted that corps members will be given the required training to fight if a serious war breaks out.
He said; “You can imagine within the short three weeks in the orientation camps, the corps members are moulded. They are like soldiers. You see female corps members blowing the army horn, playing with the military band.
“If not for the knowledge, where are you going to mobilise such young Nigerians to train them quickly to put in their best for the country? So, corps members are on reserve. They are also part of the national defence policy.”
