NYSC To Strate­gise For Emerg­ing Chal­lenges

The Guardian (Nigeria) - - NEWS - From Kanayo Umeh, Abuja

THe­na­tional Youth Ser­vice Corps (NYSC) is to take proac­tive steps to­wards re­spond­ing to emerg­ing chal­lenges in the pur­suit of its man­date.

To this end, a think tank is to be set up to ar­tic­u­late strate­gies on the scheme's pol­icy thrust and ad­min­is­tra­tion to make it more re­spon­sive to na­tional needs at all times.

This was part of the res­o­lu­tions made at the 2017 An­nual Man­age­ment Con­fer­ence of the scheme, which took place from 25th to 28th Septem­ber, 2017 in Jos.

The fo­rum also re­solved that op­por­tu­ni­ties would be ex­plored for deeper in­volve­ment of the pri­vate sec­tor and other stake­hold­ers in the suc­cess­ful im­ple­menta- tion of the NYSC pro­grammes. It was fur­ther agreed that re­search and de­vel­op­ment would be strength­ened not only to en­hance op­er­a­tional ef­fi­ciency, but also for greater im­pact as­sess­ment.

The Di­rec­tor-gen­eral reaf­firmed their com­mit­ment to the wel­fare of corps mem­bers and di­rected all co­or­di­na­tors to fol­low suit.
