NYSC Chief Appeals To National Assembly For Enhancement

Date:

The Director General of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), Brig. Gen. Yusha’u Ahmed, has urged the National Assembly to provide increased assistance to the NYSC in its mission to foster unity among Nigerians. Ahmed stated that collaboration with the legislative body would boost the NYSC’s achievements spanning five decades.

During his visit to Senator Yemi Adaramodu, Chair of the Senate Committee on Youth Development, and Martins Esin, Chair of the House Committee on Youth Development, Ahmed praised their roles and reaffirmed the NYSC’s commitment to national unity, economic growth, youth empowerment, and wealth generation.

Stressing the importance of closer ties with lawmakers, Ahmed emphasized the need to prioritize youth concerns in the country. Both Adaramodu and Esin assured their commitment to offering the required backing for an enabling environment to facilitate the NYSC’s operations.

Meanwhile, at the 12th edition of the NYSC’s annual essay competition and national symposium, themed “Building Strong Institution: A Pathway to a National Rebirth,” six corps members underscored the critical role of robust institutions in Nigeria’s sustainable advancement. Organized by the Bible Society of Nigeria in Lagos, the symposium delved into discussions on the foundation of resilient institutions, starting from the family unit.

Praise Modekwe, a corps member serving in Cross River State, emerged the winner in the essay contest, receiving N400,000 and literature as a reward. Modekwe highlighted the essential nature of strong institutions in the development of prosperous nations.

Dr. Meksley Nwagboh, Chair of the event, emphasized the integral role of robust institutions in shaping a promising future. Bishop Olubunmi Banwo, President of the Bible Society of Nigeria, echoed the sentiment, underlining the necessity for enduring institutions despite the nation’s pool of capable individuals.

The NYSC’s Director General’s plea for augmented National Assembly support aligns with the broader conversation concerning the significance of sturdy institutions for Nigeria’s progress and prosperity. The meeting made it even clearer that we need to make our basic organizations stronger right from the beginning to keep progress going steadily.
