In a speech by the Brigadier General on Wednesday 26th May 2021 at Abuja, The Director-General of NYSC Shuaibu Ibrahim said  the scheme is not a waste of time, adding that its relevance in integration and national cohesion must not be underestimated.

He said NYSC has been a useful tool for the socio-economic development of the country through the deployment of corps members to states outside their base.

The corps members contribute in many ways to the lives of residents of their host communities.

Wherever corps members are posted to, they have been adding value in order to be remembered with good legacies,” ~ Shuaibu Ibrahim
