The Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF) has cautioned northerners against traveling to southeast due to the security situation in the zone.

He spoke on Monday when he hosted some selected members of NYSC Batch A stream 2 Corps members posted to Sokoto state in his palace in Sokoto.

The Sultan said those agitating for the scrapping of the scheme did not mean well for the country.

He said the NYSC scheme was established to foster the nation’s unity and strengthen ties among Nigerians.

“I heard there are efforts for the scrapping of the NYSC scheme, I assure you that those behind that struggle do not mean well for this country,” he said.

According to him, the  NYSC scheme is the most needed programme in view of the present situation when Nigeria is almost divided along ethnic and religious lines.

He welcomed youth corps members posted to the state, saying the state was the most peaceful state in Nigeria.

Abubakar urged the youth corps members to consider the state as their second home and explore the opportunities therein.

He advised them to respect the customs and traditions of their host communities and be security conscious as there are security challenges in parts of the state.
