The Minister of Youths and Sports Development, Sunday Dare, has dismissed reports alleging the NYSC scheme will be scrapped.
According to reports, the bill to scrap the NYSC scheme reached the second reading in the House of Representatives, which some feel has outlived its usefulness.
According to a tweet from his verified Twitter handle, he said the government is committed to sustaining the scheme.
”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 tweeted.
