Senate foresees jobs for graduates with NYSC trust fund bill



NYSC trust fund bill: Senate creates graduate to jobs

Yemi Adaramodu, the chairman of the Senate Committee on Youth and Community Engagement, has expressed confidence that the recently passed National Youths Service Corps (NYSC) Trust Fund Bill will pave the way for job opportunities for graduates.

Adaramodu made this revelation during an official visit to the Oyo State NYSC Orientation Camp in Iseyin on Saturday, leading a delegation of the committee.

The bill, having successfully navigated through the legislative process with first and second readings, is now poised for Presidential assent.

Adaramodu emphasized that the primary objective of the bill is to empower corps members by leveraging the training they receive through the NYSC Skill Acquisition and Entrepreneurship Development (SAED) program.

He elaborated that the provisions of the bill are designed to support corps members in establishing themselves, particularly those interested in pursuing entrepreneurial ventures post-service year.

Adaramodu asserted that with the implementation of this bill, the issue of unemployment and post-service year uncertainty for corps members will soon be a thing of the past.

Furthermore, Adaramodu disclosed plans for the Senate to collaborate with relevant government departments, agencies, and stakeholders to review upward the allowances of corps members.

This collaborative effort underscores the commitment to enhancing the welfare and prospects of Nigerian graduates participating in the NYSC program.
