The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) scheme is a crucial program that promotes national unity and integration, and the safety and welfare of corps members are paramount. Therefore, state governments must collaborate with relevant stakeholders to ensure the security and welfare of corps members in their respective states. The Gombe State Government’s commitment to this cause is a positive development that other state governments should emulate.
