The Minister of Youth and Sports Development, Sunday Dare, has disclosed that the Federal Government will sustain the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) scheme.
Dare announced this in a statement on Wednesday, declaring that the NYSC is one of the utmost tools for National growth for youths in Nigeria.
He wrote, “The NYSC scheme remains one of the greatest tools for national development of our youth.
“The commitment of the government to sustaining the NYSC scheme remains.
“Dynamic Reforms and Initiatives towards current realities are ongoing. Nigeria will stand with her youth.
The Minister said this statement in the midst of requests for the National Youth Service Corps scheme to be scrapped.
Top Naija had earlier reported that the House of Representatives considered a bill for the scrapping of the National Youth Service Corps scheme.
The Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria Alteration Bill, 2020, seeking to cancel the National Youth Service Corps Act, has been billed for the second reading.
The sponsor, Mr Awaji-Inombek Abiante, in the clarifying memo of the proposition, itemised the several reasons why the National Youth Service Corps should be discontinued.
The lawmaker had stated, “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.”
