The Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria (HURIWA) has strongly rejected recent calls for the suspension of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) over insecurity.

In a press conference held in Abuja, the group said the government should instead enhance security measures and increase funding.

Comrade Emmanuel Onwubiko, the National Coordinator of HURIWA, emphasized that the NYSC had been playing an integral role in shaping national identity, fostering unity, and empowering the youth over its five-decade history.

HURIWA categorically rejected the proposition to suspend the NYSC, highlighting its enduring mission to bridge ethnic and cultural gaps among Nigerian youths.

Comrade Onwubiko praised the NYSC’s achievements, citing millions of Nigerian youths who have emerged as influential professionals, entrepreneurs, and leaders.

HURIWA expressed concern that suspending the NYSC would undermine the foundational principles of discipline, patriotism, and a sense of responsibility and deprive the nation of a vital institution.

HURIWA acknowledged the prevailing security challenges in the country but emphasized that the NYSC is a victim, not the root cause, calling on the government to implement comprehensive security measures that safeguard all citizens, including NYSC members.
