NYSC Scheme Remains – FG Tells Nigerians

Following earlier recommendations from the House of Representatives that the NYSC scheme should be scrapped, the Minister of Youth and Sports Development, Sunday Dare, has disclosed that the Federal Government will sustain the  National Youth Service Corps Scheme.

Disclosing this in a statement issued on Wednesday, Dare made it known that the NYSC is one of the greatest tools for National development for youths in Nigeria.

According to him, ”The NYSC scheme remains one of the greatest tools for national development for our youth. The commitment of the government to sustaining the NYSC scheme remains.”

The Minister added that, “Dynamic Reforms and Initiatives towards current realities are ongoing. Nigeria will stand with her youth.

According to earlier reports, the sponsor of the bill to scrap NYSC, Mr. Awaji-Inombek Abiante, stated that “Due to insecurity across the country, the National Youth Service Corps Management now give considerations to posting corps members to their geo-political zone, thus defeating one of the objectives of setting up the service corps i.e. developing common ties among the Nigerian youths and promote national unity and integration.”
