Buhari urged to sign NYSC Trust Fund Bill into law

The Centre for Social Justice, Equity and Transparency (CESJET) has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to give assent to the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) Trust Fund Bill recently passed by the National Assembly.

Executive Secretary of CESJET, Isaac Ikpa, who made the call Tuesday in Abuja at a media briefing, said the signing into law of the bill would bring economic prosperity to the Nigerian youth.

 “It is instructive to mention that the provisions of the NYSC-TF are well-intentioned and positioned to address the challenges faced by the teeming youthful population in the country.

 “Youth empowerment can curb the rate of poverty to a large extent. One of the keys to empowering the youth is skill development. When youth is equipped with essential skills, they can use them to feed, assist others, and even invest for future use, aiding the nation economically.

 “An empowered and dedicated youth works hard and creates employment opportunities for them to gain financial freedom and contribute to the economy of the country,” Ikpa said.
