Taraba State Governor, Darius Ishaku, says that as part of the country’s efforts to combat insecurity, the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) should be extended to two years, and members be allowed to undergo military.
The governor who was a guest on Channels Television’s Politics also said the scheme should be extended to two years with the first involving core military training.
NYSC which runs for a year was designed by the Nigerian government in 1973 to encourage nation-building among graduates.
But the governor believes that an extension of the duration would better equip graduates with self-defense techniques especially at a time like this when national insecurity is now rife.
