The Director General of the National Youth Service Corps, Brig. Gen. Yusha’u Ahmed, has called for more support from the National Assembly, to enable the scheme to continue to discharge its mandate of uniting Nigerians.
According to him, the support from the legislative arm of the government will assist the NYSC to consolidate achievements recorded in the last 50 years of its existence.
The NYSC DG made the appeal when he visited the Chairman of the Senate Committee on Youth Development, Senator Yemi Adaramodu, and the Chairman of the House Committee on Youth Development, Martins Esin.
Ahmed, while congratulating the lawmakers on their emergence as chairmen of the Senate and House Committees, said the “NYSC would not relent in its contributions to national unity, socio-economic development of the country, youth empowerment, wealth creation, among others”.
He added that there is need to foster stronger relationships with the lawmakers, in order to prioritise the concern of the youth in the country.
