President Muhammadu Buhari has disclosed that the National Youth Service Corp (NYSC) scheme was well thought-out to unite the country through understanding.

The president who disclosed this on Tuesday at his country home in Daura, Katsina State, while receiving youth Corp members who visited him for Eid-el-Kabir homage, expressed his deep attachment to the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) and impact so far, saying it broadens the horizon of citizens, opens opportunities, and enhances understanding of cultural differences.

The President said he had consistently commended former Head of State, Gen. Yakubu Gowon for the initiative, which had created more opportunity for uniting the country.

President Buhari urged the youth corps members to make the most out of the opportunity of travelling around the country, especially in understanding different climates, cultures, languages and out views on life.

“Every time I meet with former Head of State, Gen. Yakubu Gowon, like recently, I still commend him for the initiative of the NYSC. The NYSC is spectacular in many ways.

The President said

 “I feel very strongly about the NYSC, and I am wishing you all the absolute best. I assure you that you will be much better as Nigerians after your experience,’’ he added.

The Corps Liaison Officer, Umaru Babayo thanked the President for all the efforts and sacrifices to restore peace in the country, and the policies to diversify the economy, with agriculture as the main driver.

He said the Emir of Daura, Alhaji Faruk Umar Faruk, had shown a lot of kindness and warmth to corps members as well in his domain, appreciating the community for always supporting them.

Babayo assured the President of prayers for a successful time in office, and God’s providence in decision making that will move the country forward.
