Due to the widespread speculations lately that the one-year mandatory scheme for all graduates will be scrapped following the second reading of a bill in the House of Representatives seeking to end the scheme which some feel has outlived its usefulness, the Minister for Youth and Sports development Mr. Sunday Dare while responding to this speculation said the government is committed to sustaining the scheme.
Dare stated this on his tweeter handle this morning saying:
“The NYSC scheme remains one of the greatest tools for National development for our youth. The commitment of the government to sustaining the NYSC scheme remains. Dynamic Reforms and Initiatives towards current realities are ongoing. Nigeria will stand with her youth”
