Reps Consider Scrapping NYSC As Bill Reaches Second Reading by NewDelhi(m): 5:34pm On May 24, 2021
THE House of Representatives is considering discontinuation of the National Youth Service Corps scheme.

The Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria Alteration Bill, 2020, which is seeking to repeal the NYSC Act, is billed for the second reading.

The sponsor, Mr Awaji-Inombek Abiante, in the explanatory memorandum of the proposal, listed the various reasons why the NYSC should be scrapped.

It read in part, “This bill seeks to repeal Section 315(5)(a) of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, 1999, (as amended) on the following grounds: “Incessant killing of innocent corps members in some parts of the country due to banditry, religious extremism and ethnic violence; incessant kidnapping of innocent corps members across the country;

“Public and private agencies/departments are no longer recruiting able and qualified Nigerian youths, thus relying heavily on the availability of corps members who are not being well remunerated and get discarded with impunity at the end of their service year without any hope of being gainfully employed;

“Due to insecurity across the country, the National Youth Service Corps management now gives considerations to posting corps members to their geopolitical 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.” The military regime of General Yakubu Gowon had established the NYSC on May 22, 1973, under Decree No. 24 of 1973 as a way of reconciling and reintegrating Nigerians after the civil war between July 6, 1967 and January 15, 1970.

The scheme is outdated already and of no relevance in the face of the ever growing challenges that abound in Nigeria

I woke up from sleep to let you know that because of the evil statement you made about the murdered 14 year old girl who was killed because refused to date her school mate, her fate will be your portion. Your comment was so vile nairaland had to delete it. Disgusting pile of dung!

How dare you?! Did you crawl out of a sewer or are you actually one of those evil degenerates destroying our society? I’m sure you’re a rapist, murderer and a political thug.
Everything is a joke to you people. Not caring if they have family and friend grieving that can see these hurtful words you make. You hide under the cover of anonymity to say the most awful things. I’m sure your mind inspires the devil. Your heart must be the origin of evil. You will learn the hard way that there are consequences for every action unless you repent.
