While there are secretariats in all local governments in the state, this is the headquarters and so houses the State Coordinator, along with other high ranking state officials. It is here to report to after your 21 days at the Orientation Camp to get assigned to your Place of Primary Assignment (PPA). Weekly Community Development Service (CDS) are also held here, along with the NYSC sponsored Skills Acquisition Entrepreneurship Development program. This is also where to go if you have inquiries about the NYSC scheme in Oyo State.
As long as you are fully kitted in your NYSC uniform, you have no fear of being turned away. Different people have different tales of how they interacted with the officials and staff but I have found that a smile, knowledge of the local language, and an appealing face helps for a positive interaction. It will be wise to befriend one of the staff as you never know when an inside-ear will be needed.
