NYSC Is A Monumental Waste Of Resources - Banky W

Veteran singer Bankole Wellington (Banky W) says he would rather the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) programme be made optional. 

He made this assertion while speaking to Joyce Onyemuwa on the Sunny Side. 

Detailing what would form his political bucket list if he runs for elections again, the popular 'Strong Thing' singer also says unemployment is a "burden" for him.

"Nigerians are looking for jobs, there are jobs available but there is a disconnect."

He added, "NYSC is a monumental waste of resources, we spend a fortune on it as a country every year and it doesn't achieve what it was originally set out for."

"Could we consider making NYSC an optional programme?," He inquired.

Watch video to hear him explain his plans for this move, plus how the government can battle unemployment with the help of private companies through taxes.
