INCREASE PAY OR SCRAP NYSC
The federal government of Nigeria should revisit the National Youth Service Corp (NYSC). The students of the country are requesting that the scheme is scraped or they increase the amount they recieve as allowance.
The students recall that the amount for the NYSC allowance was as at the time the currency was much stronger in the foreign market. Graduate of the Federal Republic of Nigeria now live under $5 daily which includes their transport and housing.
Some states have also stopped paying NYSC menbers and still want them to serve under zero welfarism.
This petitition is filed for the Federal government of Nigeria to revisit the scheme and either increase the allowances to a reasonable amount or scrap the scheme. Serving the nation should be with zeal and promote development not increase poverty rate and promoting underdevelopment.
