The Nigeria House of Representatives has finally disclosed its decision on the currently proposed bill of scrapping the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC).
The lower chamber announced this decision at the unveiling of nine books on NYSC and a maiden NYSC film to commemorate the 48th anniversary of the scheme in Abuja on Thursday.
Speaking on behalf of the house, Mr. Yemi Adaramodu gave an assurance that the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) scheme would not be scrapped.
In his presentation, he said sponsoring a bill for scraping the scheme should not rattle the agency because any member has the right to sponsor bill at the National Assembly.
“But the Speaker, the rest of us, the leadership of the house believe in the scheme and the scheme has come to stay in Nigeria.
“So the scheme is going nowhere, nobody is scrapping it”.
“I want to tell you that we are behind you, we are with you, we are for you, once you see us here, you should know that we are together and we are fully with you.
“Mr Speaker even said that I should felicitate the director-general and his team for this task and that he is very interested in getting the books“.
