Ubah To FG: Review NYSC Service Year To 1month, Give N300,000 To Graduates by delawal(m): 11:40pm On Feb 21, 2017
The Managing Director, Capital Oil and Gas, Dr Patrick Ifeanyi
Ubah has called for the review of the National Youth Service
Corps, NYSC, in order for it to become a job creating platform
as against what the scheme offers now.
Ubah, who spoke yesterday, at the Nnamdi Azikiwe University,
Awka, Anambra State, at an event organized by Nigeria
Economics Students Association, (NESA), UNIZIK Chapter,
called for review of the NYSC Scheme from what it represents
now to a scheme capable of solving Nigeria’s employment
crisis.
Speaking on the topic “Entrepreneurship and Nigerian Youths:
Ifeanyi Ubah Experience and Lesson,” the Anambra-born
Entrepreneur who was represented by his SSA Media, Ikechukwu
Onyia advocated for new direction with respect to the NYSC
Scheme.
Ubah said: “NYSC is a scheme introduced by the Federal
Government as an Interventionist policy immediately after the
civil war, it was meant to serve as an integration scheme and
not for job creation.”
Ifeanyi Ubah
“But now, the greatest crisis facing Nigeria is that of
unemployment and the development calls for the review of
NYSC Scheme to reflect job creation. The scheme founded in
70s is over 40years old and therefore begging for a review.”
“Today, the Federal Government pays each Corp member under
NYSC Scheme N19, 800 per month and that gives us N237, 609
per year and when you factor in other expenses that emanates
from camping, you will be having about N300,000 for each corp
member per year.”
“Federal Government Mobilizes 150,000 graduates every year
for NYSC. Let’s use 150,000 graduates here. If in a year,
Federal Government mobilizes 150,000 graduates for NYSC and
spends around N300, 000 on each of them, this amounts to N45
Billion per annum.
He added that “we can review the scheme and make our
graduates go through various skills acquisition training upon
graduation and N300,000 handed to them by Federal
Government to establish the Entrepreneurship skill that he or she
might have learned. We can hand over this N300,000 to our
graduates after they must have passed through one, three
weeks or say one month Entrepreneurship or skill acquisition
training as a seed or start up capital.
“Yes, we can re-adjust the 12 months service year to three
weeks or one month which will be used for the training of these
graduates towards self reliance.”
The Proprietor, FC Ifeanyi Ubah asked, “what is the gain of
spending N45 Billion on our graduates after which you push
them to the unemployment market? Is it not better we train
them and hand each of them the N300,000 as a seed capital.?”
“Some of them can even use their own seed money to go into
cooperative groups among themselves towards setting up
various businesses upon graduation and by so doing, we will be
creating job creators instead of job seekers.”
Ubah challenged the students to redirect the conversation
towards providing solutions to the challenges blighting the
Nation as the country is faced with multiple economic shocks.
“You must start raising agenda for the policy makers of this
Nation. Creating solution is what makes an Entrepreneur thick
and you must rise to the occasion especially now that our
Nation faces multiple economic shocks.
“Good enough, there is hope because you are here today in this
hall as stakeholders in this great search for solutions.”
Ubah, however, called on the government to redirect its focus in
creating enabling environment for Entrepreneurship to thrive in
Nigeria.
“The truth is that Government cannot do this alone and there is
need for Government at all levels to start creating enabling
environment through Public Policies that will stimulate
entrepreneurial growth in the country in order to forestall
recurring economic crisis in the country.”
On his part, Professor Nwogwugwu of the Economics
Department, UNIZIK, called on the students to start thinking as
job creators, saying, “You are here to learn how to solve
problems facing our Nation and not to create one.”

Na so jare ifeanyi ubah. Government keep deceiving ourselves by making it twelve months. And at the end no job. It is smiling and suffering in every where you go. The sad part is that the useless government will never review it. Even the stipend giving to corp members are very very low. It is only God that will save us from them.

Would make much sense but this country doesn't believe in truly helping its citizens grow. They'll prefer wasting someone's life for 12months in the name of NYSC and some people will actually lose their lives in the name of serving their country.

There is an element of truth in what he said. Government shld remodel the scheme to become job creation.

Barely four days after launching intensive measures towards the combating of the Convid-19, the United Stockfish Dealers Association of Anambra State has unveiled its brand of Hand sanitizers. this is a major response towards the need for the provision of adequate and affordable sanitizers in the market. It will be recalled that since the entrance of the convid-19 into the shores of the country there has been a sharp increase in the prices of these necessary items used in the prevention of the contact of this virus. Such hike in prices has affected peoples ability to procure these itesm for use. The association has taken it upon itsel to be able to provide a viable and affordable alternative for these itess. with the introduction of the sanitizers , its their intention to flood the markets with the products so it can reach everyone.

Very sound idea. Those with capitalist mindset will love the idea,but the die hard socialist that love handouts will kick against it. We should quit these nonsense ideas that overbloat our bugdet with no significant addition to our economy.

Even npower is socialist in nature. Instead of keeping able bodied young men and women on monthly stipends. Train them for a month or two on the skill of their choice then give each 500k to start something. That is how to solve unemployment.
