The National Youth Service Corps, NYSC, may give consideration to the deployment of corp members to the 16 member states of the Economic Community of West African States Corps ECOWAS, going by one of the suggestions offered at its top management retreat in Niger State.
Prof Oka Obono, a lecturer at the University of Ibadan, gave the proposition to the NYSC top management during the retreat in Suleja, Niger while delivering his lecture titled; “Strategies for Sustaining the NYSC in a Changing World.”
In a statement by the NYSC Director of Press and Public Relations, Mrs Adenike Adeyemi, and obtained by SaharaReporters, the agency will consider the suggestion.
The Varsity Don stated that the advantages of corp members being deployed across the West African sub-region would include the vast reduction of unemployment among the Nigerian youths as well as regional exposure.
Obono advocated that all stakeholders should embrace expansion strategies that would be of benefit to the youths.
