Governor of Taraba state, Darius Ishaku has said the National Youth Service Corps, NYSC scheme should be a two-year programme in order for them to also undergo military training.

Ishaku made this suggestion when speaking during a programme on Channels Television on Wednesday.

He said “If you leave me, the NYSC, I will say it should be two years — one year for compulsory military training and the other year for the social works that they are doing now,”

“(This is) so that anybody who graduates as an NYSC person can know how to handle a gun, can know how to defend himself, just like it is done in other countries like in Israel, Lebanon and other places.

“You must engage your citizens to be proactive when you cannot provide the security. You must allow them to protect themselves. Constitution or no constitution, you must first be alive.”
