NYSC mobilization : Students lament ban on universities


The National Youth Corps (NYSC) has banned Benue State University and Makurdi University of Agriculture from sending its students to the compulsory annual national service.

DAILY MAIL has gathered that this scheme provides for a two-year ban on both schools after the alleged discovery of negligence and evidence of manipulation with age.

However, in response, Vice-Chancellor of the University of Benue, Professor Moses Kembe, during a meeting with Scheme, spoke in favor of leniency.

Kembe at the meeting, which ended in a dead end, argued that the university leadership was not involved in the manipulation with age. He explained that age limits were manipulated by the students themselves.

Kembe’s appeal was not accepted because NYSC believes that the only available option is to punish the universities allegedly participating in this act.

The conclusions of the DAILY MAIL on Monday showed that graduates of affected universities were denied access to the NYSC registration portal.

One of the affected graduates, Issac Mbanefo, calling for a scheme to lift the ban and punish only the guilty, told our reporter that it was a mistake for NYSC to sacrifice innocent students for a crime committed by several.

He said: “How do you correct a crime by placing a ban on innocent students? What do you want them to do at home for two years? In a country where you can't get a decent job without NYSC, do you expect our parents to continue feeding us? "

Another graduate, named Matthew Eboh, said: “Sometimes I feel that NYSC does not understand the plight of a simple Nigerian. How logical is it to establish a ban that will affect innocent students for two years? Why don't they ban suspected students and not the whole school? I doubt they thought about this decision.

Also, one Martha Prosper said: “The ban is not right, some innocents can be above the term of service when the ban is suspended. NYSC must draw its own conclusions and punish those guilty of loneliness. "

Below are some of the other comments that DAILY MAIL collected on this topic from Facebook.

Stephen Shasu, “NYSC also exposes itself to making fun of such a hasty and poorly informed decision. Someone or people are responsible for this action, and those who will be affected by the ban will certainly not be aware of the anomaly. ”

Ter Lawrence, “His laziness on the part of NYSC is their duty to check for age and, probably, to investigate cases of fraud. Generalization is not a good measure, since innocent people will most certainly be affected, especially considering the age of most students. ”

Ben Pierov: “With regard to the NYSE ban on BSU, NYSC should limit its punishment only to the perpetrators. Why do they punish an innocent majority for the crime of several? Innocent students who have suffered should not just be silent. Approach the courts for judicial review. Petition of the National Assembly. The NYSC Office’s action is unacceptable and must be challenged. ”

Vitali Alabi: “I never believed in this news, but if it happens that the news is true, how can they punish innocent students; forgery is a crime against the law; therefore, if some students faked their age in order to go to New York, they should be arrested and brought to justice in court, and if the authorities know, but do not catch the perpetrators, they should also be arrested and brought to criminal responsibility for inciting to the crime of punishing all students. "

Okvoro sunnybase: I think this is political, they want to intimidate us in Benue, this is because of the law on the fight against grazing, but we are not afraid. I think NANS should fall into this, because NYSC has 101 ways to curb any form of fraudulent practice, and not punish everyone for the sin of one person. ”

Ogwuba Onche: “This is not the best measure. If someone is caught, let the person face punishment, and not tie others. In fact, Nigeria has a long way to go with such a ridiculous law. ”
