It has been shown that individuals can use this to advertise their business, make money from it, camp platoon EXCOS can also organize the platoon with it, same way the OBS can use it for various purposes.
The Orientation Broadcasting Service (OBS) on every NYSC Orientation camp is the chief source of dissemination of information on camp. The functions of the OBS are enormous, ranging from passing out firsthand updates from camp officials, announcing platoon meetings, and even entertaining the youth Corp members with music and other fun programs.
