A Brief History of the NYSC Scheme
The NYSC scheme was created in a bid to reconstruct, reconcile and rebuild the country after the Nigerian Civil War. The purpose of the scheme is primarily to inculcate in Nigerian youths the spirit of selfless service to the community, and to emphasize the spirit of oneness and brotherhood of all Nigerians, irrespective of cultural or social background.
Nigerian youths, upon completion of tertiary education, are enrolled in this compulsory one-year scheme.
