The National Youth service Corps is one of the most important obligations all full time students in the tertiary institution must undergo.
It was created by the late head of state General Yakubu Gowon in a motive for all youth to serve his country in an annual year. In this present civilian rule there has been many previous effort to strike out this obligation of our youth and there has been also some plans to increase the allowances of youth coppers.

The pains of this single program is that you see a youth copper been posted to a place he or she don't have anybody or don't know anyone and the government does not have accommodation to these coppers. They are now left alone to struggle and with a monthly allowance that has not been reviewed for years.
The major pains is as in the state like Lagos and FCT where coppers are posted to a place and they are also rejected by the head of the organisation hindering them to perform their obligations to the nation, there are many pains in the National Youth Service Corps and I want the federal government to look toward this angel remember they are all our children.
