NYSC Won’t Be Scrapped, House Committee Assures Nigerians




(AFRICAN EXAMINER) – The Chairman House Committee on Youth Development, Mr Yemi Adaramodu, has given assurance that the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) scheme would not be scrapped.

Adaramodu gave the assurance at the unveiling of nine books on NYSC and a maiden NYSC film to commemorate the 48th anniversary of the scheme in Abuja on Thursday.

He said that sponsoring a bill on scraping the scheme should not rattle the agency because any member has the right to sponsor bill at the National Assembly.

“The Speaker, the rest of us, the leadership of the house believe in the scheme and the scheme has come to stay in Nigeria.

“So the scheme is going nowhere, nobody is scrapping it.

“I want to tell you that we are behind you, we are with you, we are for you, once you see us here, you should know that we are together, and we are fully with you.

“Mr Speaker even said that I should felicitate the D-G and his team for this task and that he is very interested in getting the books,” Adaramodu said.

Prof. Okpeh Okpeh, President, Historical Society of Nigeria, while reviewing the books, said that he particularly liked the one titled ‘NYSC (1973-2020): Emergence, Growth and Development.



He said that this was because even with the poor reading culture of Nigerians the pictures that accompanied the write up were sure to attract people and encourage them to read.

Brig.-Gen. Shuaibu Ibrahim, Director General of NYSC had earlier in his address of welcome, said that he believed that the documentation of the scheme’s activities will enrich the knowledge of Nigerians.

“This is based on my belief that such endeavour will enrich the knowledge of Nigerians and non- Nigerians about the scheme.

“It will thereby engender a greater appreciation of its relevance and numerous achievements,” he said.

The books unveiled include NYSC (1973-2020) Emergence, Growth and Development; NYSC and National development; NYSC and Community development service in Nigeria.

Others are NYSC and election in Nigeria; NYSC and National integration; NYSC and Nigeria’s health sector; NYSC and the educational sector; NYSC and COVID-19 pandemic as well as NYSC and Skill acquisition and entrepreneurship development.

The maiden NYSC film titled ‘A call to service was among the things unveiled to mark the scheme’s 48th anniversary.
