The Minister of Youths and Sports Development, Sunday Dare, has dismissed reports claiming the NYSC scheme would be scrapped.
News had broke out that the one year mandatory scheme for all graduates will be scrapped following the second reading of the bill in the House of Representatives seeking to end the scheme which some feel has outlived it’s usefulness.
Addressing the reports, Min. Dare took to his Twitter page to debunk the claims as he revealed that the government is committed to sustaining the scheme.
“The NYSC scheme remains one of the greatest tools for National Development for our youths. 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”.
