NYSC to consider deploying corps members to Ghana, other West African countries

The National Youth Service Corps may consider deploying corps members to the 16 member states of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) for the compulsory one year service.

According to SaharaReporters, a lecturer at the University of Ibadan, Oyo State, Prof Oka Obono, gave the suggestion to the NYSC top management during a retreat in Suleja, Niger state, while delivering his lecture titled; “Strategies for Sustaining the NYSC in a Changing World.”

Obono stated that the advantages of Nigerian corps members deployed across the West African sub-region would include the vast reduction of unemployment among the youths as well as regional exposure.

He advocated that all stakeholders should embrace expansion strategies that would be of benefit to the youths.

“Expand operations to the West African region thereby reducing internal graduate unemployment and reducing pressures on the Nigerian labour market,” Prof Obono told the NYSC management.

The NYSC Director of Press and Public Relations, Mrs Adenike Adeyemi, in a release states that the agency will consider the suggestion of deploying corps members to other ECOWAS countries.
