    Should NYSC Scheme Be Scrapped or Not?

    Recently, Awaji Inombek Abiante, a member of the House of Representatives, has introduced a measure advocating the elimination of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC).

    Following the Nigerian Civil War in 1973, the scheme was formed to encourage Reconstruction, Rehabilitation, and Reconciliation.

    The initiative was also created to help the country overcome ethnic and religious divides and build a sense of nationalism.

    At first, all graduates of tertiary institutions were required to participate, but the age limit was eventually raised to 30 years, with holders of the National Certificate in Education (NCE) being excluded.

    Despite the NYSC’s goals, many Nigerians believe it is past time to end the programme, stating that it is no longer relevant.

    However, it should be mentioned that a significant number of Nigerian youths have died while serving their country. A recent account of four graduates from the University of Uyo on their way to Katsina State for their one-year compulsory service serves as an example.

    On the basis of loss of lives, do you think NYSC should be scrapped or it should be revamped?

      If the Federal government does not want to scrap the scheme, they should allow the Copers to serve in their state of origin. Enough of this waste of lives.

      I don’t think it should be scrapped, FG should just develop new strategies to make it a unique one because of the safety of Young graduates.

      After spending more than four years in the University, their lives ended that way. What should be the joy of those parents whose children lost their lives in the course of going far away North to serve?

      According to this post, the scheme was also created to help the country overcome ethnic and religious divides and build a sense of nationalism. My question is are Nigerians not more divided now? The answer to my question will determine if the scheme should be scrapped or not.
