Check out the result of a Twitter poll asking if NYSC should be scrapped

The National Youth Service Corps has been beset with a myriad of problems ranging from poor welfare to the avoidable deaths of participants. Created in the wake of the civil war to foster unity among Nigerians, many are of the opinion that not only has it outlived its purpose, it hasn't done much to unite us as a people. Some are of the opinion that it is just another engine through which corrupt  officials siphon public funds. Thoughts?

The end of the scheme is a dicey one. Truly not much have achieved by the scheme and so it would be necessary to end the programme, yet a whole lot of people will lose their jobs if the scheme is scrapped out.

daniel ubong said...

Just past out though but No it's shouldn't be scraped.

only if people would see that NYSC actually creates oppourtunities. a good number of Nigerians would have absolutely no work experience if not for the compulsory NYSC (considering the years of experience organisations are always looking for during recruitment). people actually get jobs or connections that help them with jobs during NYSC. its not like those saying it should be scrapped actually have anything to do during that one year.

It should be scrapped with immediate effect.

I had a memorable experience during my National Service. I associated with people outside my tribe, and I saw things from their perspective. Let's not forget that after graduation jobs do not come instantly, a lot of corp members use this opportunity to engage themselves while waiting while others get connected with jobs during their service. What needs change are the conditions during National Youth Service, like proper health care, accommodation, and the monthly allowance.

I am in support...d programme hasn't really met it expectations n the conditions in most camp is very poor for a graduate

aneke samuel said...

I concur with every bit of the opinions here...

An emphatic NO!!!. It's helps build national integration. I met one of my best frnds today at the orientation camp. He's from Kano state, and being frnds with him has helped to destroy some of the myths abt the Hausa's that I always had in my head. So, no, it shd remain. It's not perfect, but it's effective in some regards.

Which work experience? Teaching? Mtsheewwww

Those asking for NYSC to be scrapped are delusional. They either don't know why it was created or just aren't bothered to find out. It shouldn't be scrapped.

I think instead of scrapping it,
The govt should make it compulsory for all political candidates before election..
Na think I think oooooh! As una think una own....

Majority of Nigeria twitter users are youths who are not ready to leave their comfort zones. What do you expect

It should be voluntary

In my opinion, NYSC scheme should not be scrapped rather the act that establised it should be amended and renamed as Operation Feed the Nation Scheme. All graduates should be made to undergo compulsory mechanical farming for one year and let's see if there will be jobs for youths, let's see if there will be farming in the nation or if poverty will not be alleviated .

Youth obey the clarion call...ohhhh we dey go, small small so seee

Hilary Lefebvre said...

Is Nysc a football club. Any idea

oj said...

it shouldn't be scrapped out. Instead, most genuine coppers should be retained at their various places of assignment

Chuma Anumiri said...

Been*

Onah Caleb said...

90% for me, scrap NYSC O.

Anonymous said...

It fun though but I think it should be a thing of choice not compulsory as many lives are lose during the process and it risky serving in a place where there is language barrier because not all place accommodate outsiders expectly the north where it is highly religious as it take God grace to serve over there.

NYSC IS A GREAT INITIATIVE, IF ORGANIZED PROPERLY WITH NECESSARY THINGS IN PLACE SUCH AS FOOD, SECURITY, SHELTER AND A GREAT INFRASTRUCTURE IN PLACE FOR THE STUDENTS, BUT IF THEY CANNOT PROVIDE IT THEN SCRAP IT. BECAUSE YOU CANNOT ENDANGER INNOCENT LIVES.

They should stick to just the 3 weeks camp then use the money to empower the newly graduates on skill acquisition.No need for the 12months waste of time which most at times endanger most people

Sirgreen Stanley said...

Mr man what was it created for and what is the result rate?

Sirgreen Stanley said...

Your head dey dere

You are the only reasonable person on this comment section. Not just agriculture, but any scheme one chooses to indulge in for that period of a year, be it tailoring (fashion), sound engineering, graphics, beautification (make-up, hair making). U name it, we have to many sectors to explore, so while restrict it to teaching? Dumb country

Sirgreen Stanley said...

The 3 of u are Anonymous, so na the 3 of Una wey no get sense

Sirgreen Stanley said...

God bless you

Abwa lisa said...
