News about a bill to discontinue the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has been welcomed by a variety of reactions from Nigerians. 

The bill, sponsored by a lawmaker from Bayelsa State, Awaji-Inombek Abiante, has now passed its second reading in the House of Representatives. 

If this bill is made into law, it would be a landmark legislative action on a structure that has been on for nearly fifty years. The NYSC was created on the 22nd of May 1973 by the Yakubu Gowon government in a bid to restructure the nation after a bloody civil war. 

Since its inception, the NYSC became a compulsory program for every graduate to partake in as government establishments & most private organisations would not employ a graduate unless they go through the 1 year mandatory youth service year. 

Over time, the NYSC has come under a lot of challenges and criticism with the most being that the nation is no longer safe to deploy young graduates to states across the country. 

Some people have opined that the NYSC has lost its merits and it should be scrapped completely while some are of the opinion that the NYSC remains vital because it gives young Nigerians the opportunity to learn more about each other’s cultures and traditions.

Since this bill has raised a round of public debate, what do you think about the subject matter? Do you think that the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) scheme should be scrapped?
