Remi Tinubu advocates for reform in NYSC



Senator Oluremi Tinubu, wife of the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, has advocated for a “holistic and modern” reforms in the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC).

The former First Lady of Lagos State who made the call on Wednesday at the second edition of the APC Professionals Forum Symposium in Abuja, said such reforms which are long overdue, would give the scheme a robust outlook.

Mrs. Tinubu who was represented at the event by the Director-General of National Centre for Women Development, Asabe Bashir, said a reform would “proactively encourage and incentivise corporate recruitment and possible retainership of employees directly from the scheme” at the end of their service year.

“We believe that the National Youth Service Corps is long overdue for a holistic, modern, and progressive reform,” she said.

“As the last conveyor belt of graduates from academic pursuits to real-life employment challenges, the Asiwaju administration believes that the NYSC can be restructured in such a way as to benefit the private sector and youth directly.

“This will be achieved by proactively encouraging and incentivising corporate recruitment and possible retainership of employees directly from the scheme,” she added.
