‘Stop putting young lives at risk’—Kate Henshaw calls for scrap of NYSC

Lagos—Veteran Nollywood actress, Kate Henshaw has called for the scrap of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) scheme in light of the safety of corps members.

Recall that eight NYSC members were recently kidnapped along a highway in Zamfara State.

Reacting via Twitter on Wednesday, Henshaw said since the security of Corps members was no longer guaranteed, the scheme should be scrapped.

She urged the government to “stop putting the lives of young people at risk with moribund ideas.”

The thespian wrote, “When I served in the North, it was a very memorable experience. Travelling from Bauchi by road to the airport was safe & then flying to Lagos just with my NYSC ID card, which also got me rebate on my ticket.

“It’s time to scrap this idea since corpers can’t travel within this country without let or hindrance!

“Stop putting the lives of young people at risk with moribund ideas. Security is a priority & needs to be sorted totally, not technically.”
