The state Governor of Taraba State, Darius Ishaku has said that the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) scheme should be extended to a two-year program.
Governor Darius speaking during an interview on Channels Television, noted that one year of NYSC program should be for military training and the other year for social works.
There is a need for corps members to undergo military training following increased insecurity in the country, he added.
His statement reads; “The NYSC I will say should be two years. One year for compulsory military training and the other year for the social works that they are doing now.
”I believe this is necessary so that anyone who graduates can know how to handle guns and defend himself due to the current situation in the country.
”I will still request that the Federal Government puts this into consideration and teach them how to use guns to protect themselves. They should train 10 or 20 people in each village along the axis of the boundaries,” he said.
