HURIWA, a frontline Rights team, cautioned that scrapping NYSC is a tragedy waiting to happen in Nigeria.
The Rights advocacy group said that scrapping the strategy could have a sociological effect on the Nigerian youths.
In a press statement by the National Coordinator, Comrade Emmanuel Onwubiko, HURIWA said the offence will turn out of control when the”Federal authorities accede into the harmful proposal to abolish the NATIONAL YOUTH SERVICE CORPS SCHEME (NYSC).”
Onwubiko said the NYSC scheme was too”significant for Nigeria’s openness to be thrown aboard from the National Assembly.”
In accordance with Onwubiko: “Following well-considered research and opinion survey conducted by HURIWA, the preponderance of view is that President Muhammadu Buhari should jealously maintain the National legacies the NYSC SCHEME signifies.
“If there’s 1 thing that the National Assembly has performed exceedingly well because the return of this nation to democracy in 1999, then it’s playing into the gallery. Inconsequential legislation has constantly received greater focus while the lacunas to be full of innovative legislation and legislative acts have been left largely unattended to.
“The call for the scrapping of the NYSC scheme was around for a while now. The arguments of the proponents centre on the place that the plot had outlived its usefulness.
“Necessarily, therefore, the advantages and goals are to empower Nigerian youths to get the soul of self-reliance by inviting them to build abilities for self-employment; to donate to the rapid expansion of the national market and to create common ties one of the Nigerian youths and encourage national unity and integration.”
HURIWA noted the NYSC scheme has united Nigerians over every other government institution in the nation.
“There is not any federal institution which has united Nigerians over the NYSC scheme. Nigerian scholars have been forced to see additional States and cultures”
HURIWA also advocated NYSC management against submitting corps associates to countries with higher insecurity problems.
