Nigeria. Enugu State. Enugu. Town center. On a roundabout, a sculpture from a man who is member of the "National Youth Service Corps" with the written words: "Shun Corruption. It's evil". In Igbo language Shun means don't engage or avoid. The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) is a scheme set up by the Nigerian government to involve Nigerian graduates in nation building and the development of the country. There is no military conscription in Nigeria, but since 1973 graduates of universities and later polytechnics have been required to take part in the National Youth Service Corps program for one year. A few yellow auto rickshaws used by "Keke" drivers for transporting people around town are waiting on the side of the road.. The tricycle better known in Nigeria as the Keke NAPEP is gaining the dominance on Nigerian roads sweeping every street of cities and villages. The auto rickshaw is a common form of urban transport, both as a vehicle for hire and for private use. Enugu is the capital of Enugu State, located in southeastern Nigeria. 2.07.19 © 2019 Didier Ruef
