During the meeting, he said that graduates should be mandated to go for the one-year National Youth Service Corps in the Nigerian Army and thereafter, graduates who are not interested or who are not willing to carry on as military personnel should be allowed to venture into other walks of life they fit into. National Youth Service Corps members would be all set for anything life has to offer.

what this Honourable should say is that, he would have said, after your Nysc program its should now be a voluntary task if the passing out Corp members will join any of the Nigeria Military that is comprises of the Nigeria Army, Air force and Navy, and not by saying all corp members should be sent to serve in the Nigeria Army , i dont think it's sound fine in the ears of people.

ALLOWING CIVILIANS TO HAVE MILITARY TRAINING WILL POSE A THREAT TO THE NATIONS SECURITY. CIVILIANS WILL LEAVE THE ARMY TO GO AND TEAM UP AGAINST THE MILITARY AFTER THEY MUST HAVE RECEIVED MILITARY TRAINING. IT IS AFTER TRAINING YOU'LL SEE CIVILIANS DISARMING SECURITY AGENCIES ON THE ROAD.
