    Wahala! corp members to be mobilized for war

     

    mobilized for war

    Director-General of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), Brig. Gen Shuaibu Ibrahim has said corps members are part of the national defense policy of Nigeria and can be mobilized for war if need be.

    Ibrahim said this on Channels Television’s ‘Sunrise Daily’ program yesterday while reacting to moves to scrap the NYSC scheme, which is compulsory for all Nigerians who graduate before the age of 30.

    The NYSC boss said, “Corps members are on reserve. They are part of the national defense policy of this country. So, where there is serious war, our corps members are educated, they are knowledgeable and they can be trained. You see the drill and so on.

    “You can imagine within the short three weeks in the orientation camps, the corps members are molded. They are like soldiers. You see female corps members blowing the army horn, playing with the military band

    He explained that the NYSC is concerned about corps members’ safety, which is why they have been told not to wander around at night.

    In the midst of mounting aspirations for secession, Ibrahim maintained that the NYSC had become more necessary than ever.

    According to the NYSC director, corps members should not go outside of the state or country without the authorization of the state coordinator.

    He also stated that corps members should not travel beyond 6:00 p.m. and that they are free to stay at any corpers’ lodge while on the road.

    Ibrahim claimed that corps members had played a critical role in educating youngsters in IDP camps.
