According to politics today 7th of July 2021 on Channels news, Darius Ishaku
Governor of Taraba State who was a guest on the program says ‘ that as part of
the Country’s effort to combat insecurity, The National Youth Service
Corps(NYSC) should be extended to two years, and members should be allowed to
undergo core military training.
The Governor in his statement this morning added that he believes an
extension of the duration would more than equip graduates with self-defense
techniques especially at a time like this when national insecurity is now rife.
He added that one year should be for social work and the other for core
training from the military in so doing, anyone that graduates from NYSC will
know how to handle a gun and defend himself.
