Renowned actress Kate Henshaw has voiced her concern over the safety of National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) members in Nigeria due to the prevailing insecurity in the country.
In a post on her Twitter page, Henshaw called on the Nigerian government to consider scrapping the NYSC scheme, citing the risks to the lives of young citizens.
She shared experience from her time as a corper and noted how freer people could traverse the country without fear for their lives.
The fitness enthusiast contrasted it with the present time and noted that there’s no point in putting the lives of young people at risk over archaic ideas.
Her post reads …
“When I served in the North,it was a very memorable experience. Travelling from Bauchi by road to the airport was safe & then flying to Lagos just with my NYSC ID card, which also got me rebate on my ticket.
It’s time to SCRAP this idea since corpers can’t travel within this country without LET OR HINDRANCE!
Stop putting the lives of young people at risk with moribund ideas.
Security is a priority & needs to be sorted totally, not technically 🤨🙄”
