The National Youths Service Corp ( NYSC ) which was instituted by then Nigerian Military Head Of State General Yakubu Gowon on May 22nd 1973 to foster unity among Nigerians after the Nigerian civil war between July 6th 1967 and January 15th 1970, is on the verge of being scrapped as members of the Nigerian House of Representative as led by Mr Awaji Inombek Abiante, will be meeting for the 2nd reading of the bill passed to the house for the scrapping of the scheme.

 

 

Mr Awaji Inombek Abiante gave the incessant killings of Youth Corpers in some parts of the state, increasing level of insecurity in the nation, religious extremism, kidnapping of Youth Corpers, and the increasing engagement of Youth Corpers over unemployed graduates by public and private agencies who prefer the corpers that they can easily discard.

 

 

Explaining his reasons for the scheme to be scrapped, he made the following points to his fellow members of the house:

 

“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.”
