Scrap NYSC scheme now, Actress Kate Henshaw tells FG

Nollywood actress, Kate Henshaw, has weighed in the level of insecurity in the country, saying it is unsafe to deploy graduates to danger zones.

She urged the federal government to scrap the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) scheme given the insecurity bedeviling the country.

Reacting via Twitter on Wednesday, the fitness enthusiast said since the security of Corps members was no longer guaranteed, the scheme should be scrapped.

The thespian urged the government to “stop putting the lives of young people at risk with moribund ideas.”

She wrote: “When I served in the north, it was a very memorable experience. Travelling from Bauchi by road to the airport was safe & then flying to Lagos just with my NYSC ID card, which also got me rebate on my ticket.

“It’s time to scrap this idea since corpers can’t travel within this country without let or hindrance!

“Stop putting the lives of young people at risk with moribund ideas. Security is a priority & needs to be sorted totally, not technically.”
