In the year 1951, the British brought up an idea of establishing the Boys Company with the same pattern as the Boys Wing of the British Army for each of the 4 British West African Colonies, namely the Gambia, Ghana (formerly Gold Coast), Nigeria and Sierra Leone.
I was fortunate to have been assigned to Echo Company and my Cadre Course was in Echo Company. This is my Echo Company NMS experience and how fortunate I considered myself to have been an Echolite. Enjoy and I look forward to your comments.
I have always believed in one Nigeria, I have always believed in the unity of this great country of ours. Can I sound the bugle and hail all ex-boys to heed the clarion call of nation-building, of shunning ethnic bias to fight in our various cocoons to unite Nigerians?
Standing and falling in line with a unity of purpose and collective responsibility. Ex-boys coming together as one mighty force for positive impact
