Darius Ishaku, governor of Taraba state has expressed that the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) scheme should be a two-year programme instead of one.
Governor Ishaku said this is important because corps members need to learn how to handle guns and defend themselves.
In a video that was shared on Instagram by @channelstelevision, the governor said one year should go into compulsory military training of the corps member, while the remaining one year should be dedicated to the social works the youths are doing.
He noted that since the government cannot provide adequate security, citizens should be engaged to protect themselves.
