The Director-General of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), Brigadier General Shuaibu Ibrahim, has stated in a video that corps members in the country can be mobilized for war if need be.
Brigadier General Shuaibu Ibrahim made this statement on Channels Television’s ‘Sunrise Daily’ programme on Wednesday and the video is currently going viral on social media platforms. This is coming days after the House of Representatives disclosed that they are considering scrapping the NYSC scheme as a result of insecurity and other challenges.

It appears General Shuaibu Ibrahim is not pleased with the talks surrounding the scrapping of NYSC as he stated that corps members are part of the national defence policy of this country and if there is serious war, they can be trained and given different drills to help in the war.
He also stated that the recent insecurity issues in the country is not enough reason to scrap the NYSC scheme as about 75 per cent of corps members are still serving in rural areas across the country. Here is a link to watch the video
