NYSC Director-General, Brigadier General Shuaibu Ibrahim has said the relevance of the Scheme in the integration and National cohesion of the country cannot be underestimated.
He said the National Youth Service Corps has been serving as a tool for the socio-economic development of the country through the deployment of Corps Members to States outside their States of origin, where they contribute their quota by making positive impact in the lives of their host communities through the execution of different laudable projects.
Ibrahim, who stated this ON Wednesday, in his office in Abuja added that, “NYSC is germane and critical to the unity of the country”.
“NYSC is not a waste of time, wherever Corps Members are posted to, they have been adding value in order to be remembered with good legacies”.
He said NYSC Management has partnered with the security agencies in the country in order to ensure adequate protection for Corps Members during the service year.
