Reps insists NYSC will not be scrapped REPS



The Chairman House Committee on Youth Development, Mr Yemi Adaramodu has given assurance that the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) scheme would not be scrapped.

Adaramodu gave the assurance at the unveiling of nine books on NYSC and a maiden NYSC film to commemorate the 48th anniversary of the scheme in Abuja on Thursday, NAN reports.

He said that sponsoring a bill on scraping the scheme should not rattle the agency because any member has the right to sponsor bill at the National Assembly.

Professor Okpeh Okpeh, President, Historical Society of Nigeria, while reviewing the books, said that he particularly liked the one titled ‘NYSC (1973-2020): Emergence, Growth and Development.’

He said that this was because even with the poor reading culture of Nigerian People, the pictures that accompanied the write up were sure to attract people and encaurage them to read.

Okpeh said that the scheme might not be putting money in the coffers of the Federal Government but the national integration it fosters can not be over emphasised.
