LAPSES OF NATIONAL YOUTH SERVICE CORPS (NYSC)SCHEME; Its effects and possible solutions

It has come to our notice that our university graduates as far back as mid 2015 are still home putridly rotten without being mobilized for NATIONAL YOUTH SERVICE CORPS (NYSC).
With the claimed financial incapacitation by NATIONAL YOUTH SERVICE CORPS (NYSC)SCHEME back in early March, 2016 that delayed the Batch A stream II till June, 2016 before they were eventually mobilized, this development had indirectly forced Prospective Corp Members for Batch B to accept their fate of going during November, 2016 mobilization exercise.

 
All things being equal, the expecting Batch B timetable surfaced and processing were joyously going as planned until October 4th, 2016 when NATIONAL YOUTH SERVICE CORPS (NYSC)SCHEME gave all Corps Producing Institutions directives to slash their Prospective Corps in ratio 1:3 as the scheme could only cater for one third of each institution.
Let us cite this illustration, with the 1,300 slots allocated to Obafemi Awolowo University with the university having close to 5000 Prospective Corp Members (Affiliating school, Adeyemi College of Education inclusive). What is the fate of the rest of over 3,500 PCMs? Staying at home till next year again? This is how it affects every other institutions across the naton.

 

 

A country that does not take her youth very serious is sitting on a gun powder and the repercussion is what we are seeing all around as a security threat such as Boko Haram terrorism, Avengers, Kidnapping and the likes.
Also, these graduates are being deprived the opportunity of having access to various job opportunities ongoing in the country. Hence, they are stagnant at home as well as becoming liabilities to their parents after several years as undergraduates. This also has negative impact on the progress of our economy.

Way forward:
When the purpose of a scheme is not known, abuse is inevitable.
NATIONAL YOUTH SERVICE CORPS (NYSC)SCHEME is no longer serving it’s purpose. It is now seeing as a medium of adding another two to three years in addition to years spent in school as undergraduate not including the strike observed by the both Academic and Non-Academic Staff Unions.
In view of this, we call on Federal Executive Council , National Assembly, House of Representative, Non Governmental Organizations and other well meaning Nigerians to intensively look into this and find a swift long lasting solution to the expensive delay this scheme is causing the graduates.

 
The Federal Government, as a matter of urgency should attend to whatsoever is the reason behind slashing the number of Prospective Corp Members in such a callous ratio.
It is also wise to say that with the frequent various complains as regard NATIONAL YOUTH SERVICE CORPS (NYSC)SCHEME, federal government should scrap the scheme and a full year allowances be paid to all graduates so they could use it to start a manageable new life instead of searching for unavailable job or appropriate, extensive and adequate preparation and funds should be made available for the scheme.
Conclusively, no job should request for NYSC discharge letter or callup number as a yardstick during recruitment exercise.

    It is quite very unfortunate for you that you engage in plagiarism.
    I wrote this piece with every writer’s details on it only for you to post here to claim you are the writer.
    You should have at least acknowledged the fact that someone wrote it.
    Plagiarism is a criminal offence in academic

      Someone sent it to us, saying it was written by one Umego Valentine, and the name is attached there. The writer there is not even our blog writer. Please can you show us proof that you wrote it?

    Haba! who is this so called Umego Valentine. This write up was composed by my Comrade Abiola Olaide, he is my co-mate in school. How dare this so called Valentine for him copying someone else write up and re-edited by putting his own name in favour of him. To me, this is rubbish. if he know that he have something good or suggestion to offer, can’t he just come up with his own write-ups instead of him copying someone else write up. #Iranu.

    LAPSES OF NATIONAL YOUTH SERVICE CORPS (NYSC)SCHEME; its effects and possible solutions

    It has come to our notice that our university graduates as far back as mid 2015 are still rotting at home without being mobilized for NATIONAL YOUTH SERVICE CORPS (NYSC).

    With the claimed financial incapacitation by NATIONAL YOUTH SERVICE CORPS (NYSC)SCHEME back in early March, 2016 that delayed the Batch A stream II till June, 2016 before they were eventually mobilized. This development had indirectly forced Prospective Corp Members for Batch B to accept the fate of going during November, 2016 mobilization exercise.

    Let us cite this illustration, with the 1300slots allocated to Obafemi Awolowo University with the university having close to 5000 Prospective Corp Members (Affiliated school, Adeyemi College of Education inclusive). _What is the fate of the rest over 3500 PCMs?_ Staying at home till next year again? This is how it affects every other institutions across the nation.

    A country that does not take her youth very serious is sitting on a gun powder and the repercussion is what we are seeing all around as a security threat such as Boko Haram terrorism, Avengers, Kidnapping and the likes.
    Also, these graduates are being deprived the opportunity of having access to various job opportunities ongoing in the country.
    _Hence, they are stagnant at home as well as becoming liabilities to their parents after several years as undergraduates._

    Conclusively, no job should request for NYSC discharge certificate/letter as a yardstick during recruitment exercise.

    Hence, we believe our voice would be heard at the appropriate quarters.
    Thank you in anticipation.
