NYSC Program Should Be Scrapped. It's A Waste Of Time And Energy. Youths Protest Against Demands To Scrap NYSC

NYSC program should be scrapped. It's a waste of time and energy.

After graduation, and students are mobilized for NYSC, FG should issue a nysc certificate and 1-year allowance (₦33,000 x 12 months = ₦396,000) over to the prospective Corp members.

The money would be useful for entrepreneurial skills acquisition that will equip graduates to become self employed, and further create business opportunities for themselves. (Atleast for those who are serious minded)

Youths from the 36 states and the FCT, numbering over 100, have protested against the continued demand for the scrapping of the National Youth Service Corps, saying it has become a national heritage and symbol of the country’s unity.

The spokesperson for the NF, Richard Augustine, stated these during a press conference which was held on Friday evening in Abuja.

He said, “We wish to state in unequivocal terms that the NYSC must not be scrapped, as it would amount to a great disservice to the country, if such a brilliant initiative is sacrificed on the altar of selfish aggrandizement by some vested interests in the country.

“That some youth corp members encountered life-threatening situations that, in some instances, resulted in death does not mean that the NYSC is a death trap as some unscrupulous groups and individuals would want the unsuspecting members of the general public to believe.

“Our opinion is that those who have advocated for the scrapping of the NYSC in recent times are not in tune with the reality on the ground in the country.

“Nigeria First wishes to reiterate that the call for the scrapping of the NYSC is a misnomer and should be disregarded by concerned stakeholders, including parents and guardians, as the novel introductions in the NYSC in recent times have been impactful in our quest for socio-economic growth and development,” he emphasised.

Exactly, NYSC is a waste of time, it should be scrapped, its puts graduate in danger and waste their time.

They should replace it with a skills development program for the youths in the state where they studied, graduate should not be travelling about to be used by kidnappers.

I did my NYSC, and i did skill developments by myself, it is what enhanced my future, not that useless NYSC program, where they sometimes send people to unsafe places.

Or they can make NYSC Optional, for those who need it.

Most people call for the scheme to be scrapped for people who have already served.

The prospect of meeting several graduates from different universities, the allure of being in a new place with new people, and most importantly, the promise of free socialization sex is just too enticing for people who haven’t served to want it canceled.

It should not be made mandatory; it should not be a prerequisite to getting a job or government appointments. Let the people who want to serve to do so and the ones who don’t forge ahead with their lives.

Anybody that participated in the scheme and wants it to be scrapped is evil! The only best and enduring plan in Nigeria! Why didn't you leave Nigeria? People with troublesome wives, children, or parents, did you kill them? You did not stop traveling because bandits were out there; you did not stop business because the currency lost its value. Allow others to experience it. Death is death, whether at home or outside.
