The director-general of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) Shuaibu Ibrahim, has come out in defense of the compulsory year of service, amidst calls for the scheme to scrapped. Shuaibu Ibrahim notes that the scheme is “critical to the unity of the country”.

He said the scheme is not a waste of time, adding that its relevance in integration and national cohesion must not be underestimated.

He said this in his office in Abuja, yesterday.

He further noted that the NYSC has been a useful tool for the socio-economic development of the country through the deployment of corps members to states outside their base.

On Monday it was reported that the house of representatives is considering a bill seeking to scrap the scheme.
