The Director-General of the National Youth Service Corps, Brigadier General Muhammad Fadah, has assured the people of South Sudan of the readiness of the Scheme to support the country in its quest to replicate the NYSC programme in South Sudan.


This was revealed in a statement by Caroline Embu for the Director, Press and Public Relations, said Fadah gave the assurance on Friday when the South Sudan delegates led by the Sudanese Minister of Federal Affairs, Losuba Ludoru, paid a visit to the NYSC National Directorate Headquarters, Abuja.


While describing the visit as historic, he said the NYSC had been a veritable tool for national development since its inauguration in 1973.


According to him, the NYSC remains Africa’s oldest surviving Scheme which has continued to live up to expectations and has well stood the test of time and if replicated in Sudan, which has similar civil war history like Nigeria, it will go a long way to further unite the various ethnic groups in the country.



Speaking further, Fadah said the Scheme was worthy of emulation as youths are at the centre stage of every developing nation and the need to equip them with national ideals and skills could not be over-emphasised.


The NYSC DG thanked the visiting delegates for finding the NYSC as a reference and called on them to visit the National Directorate Headquarters as the Scheme was ever ready to render all necessary assistance at all times.

Earlier, the spokesman for the Sudanese delegates, Hon Losuba Ludoru, said they were in the country to understudy Nigeria’s Federal System as well as the operations of the NYSC for replication in their country.


According to the spokesman, South Sudan has a huge youth population and has just come out of civil war not long ago, hence the need to replicate the NYSC in Sudan will assist in youth management for national growth and self-reliance.


Speaking further, he said Nigeria being a big brother in the African continent that had supported Sudan in the wake of the Sudanese civil war, and the country held Nigeria in very high esteem.


He thanked the DG and his management team for the warm reception accorded them.


Highpoint of the visit was the presentation of a paper titled, “Nigeria’s Federalism and Youth Mobilisation for National building,” by the NYSC Director of Planning, Research and Statistics, Alhaji Ahmed Ikaka.
