Minister of youth and sports, Sunday Dare has stated that the federal government remains committed to sustaining the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC).
He said this through his official Twitter handle on Wednesday.
Recall that it was reported that the house of representatives was considering a bill to scrap the mandatory one-year scheme.
This report has caused mixed reactions amongst Nigerians especially on social media.
Reacting to the development, Dare, in his tweet, stated that the scheme remains a great tool in promoting national development.
He said the government will continue to sustain the programme and will stand with the youth.
“The NYSC scheme remains one of the greatest tools for National development for our youth. 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,” he said.
