The minister of youth and sports development, Sunday Dare, has said the Federal government remains committed to the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) scheme.
VANTAGE NEWS had reported that a bill seeking the scrapping of the NYSC scheme has reached second reading in the House of Representatives.
However, Dare in a tweet on Wednesday, said plans are on ground to reform the scheme in line with present realities.
He said, “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.”
