  • In recent months, the Nigeria Youth Service Corps has played prospective corp members like this:

In all this NYSC dribbling, we fail to see the hand of God. Do you?

The hiccups in paying monthly allowance to corp members due to a paucity of funds and inability to mobilize prospective corp members to the postponement of orientation of corp members, NYSC scheme has disappointed several young Nigerians.

The call to scrap the service has never been louder as young Nigerians question the relevance of the national scheme that was initiated in 1973 to facilitate national integration, development and bridging cultural and ethnic gaps in a heterogeneous country like Nigeria.

Nigeria is currently facing economic difficulties.

Many states are unable to pay salaries of workers, while inflation rate skyrockets and unemployment blooms nationwide.

Corp members have in the past raised alarm about the compulsory service, several of them pointing to the violent killing of corp members and under-payment, late payment or no payment at all.

Then there’s the gross corruption in the system that has completely cancelled out the usefulness of the scheme.

This 10 tweets are the present arguments for why the scheme should be scraped:

  1. Outlived its usefulness

2) Support entrepreneurship

3) What a waste of time!

Alleluia somebody

4) Because we are pained

5) Unsustainable scheme

6) If you ask me, na who I go ask?

7) Even the trainers are untrained

8) Because the economy is bad

9) That awkward situation

10) Husband material is scarce -very scarce
