Wow! Senate Votes YES To Remove NYSC From Constitution


Yesterday,The Senate voted to remove the compulsory National Youth Service Scheme from the Constitution
of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

This is good news for many young Nigerians, however it doesn’t mean that NYSC is now not
compulsory for university leavers.

It is a first step in allowing the Nigerian lawmakers
to amend the NYSC decree. This development comes as
many Nigerian youth who are fed up with the non- productive nature of the scheme have been clamouring
for its termination.

An overwhelming majority of eighty eight Senators voted for the removal of the NYSC decree from the
Constitution, whilst 3 Senators voted against the amendment vote.

The lawmakers were very busy during their session yesterday, July 26th, as they also voted on 32 other
constitutional amendments including voting for the reduction of the age at which a Nigerian can run for
President and the removal of the land use act from the constitution.
