The National Association of Nigeria Students (NANS) has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to sign the Nigeria Peace Corps bill into law.
The call was made by NANS Senate President, Comrade Oyejide Salam, in Jos during an advocacy campaign tour on the already passed bill by the National Assembly.
Salam said, “We want to appeal to President Muhammadu Buhari to listen to the request of Nigerians and assent to the bill.”
According to him, the office of the NANS Senate President is advocating for the creation of Jobs, proper budget implementations on projects that could employ Nigerian graduates and well-meaning youths.
He added that for over 18 years, the voluntary organisation through its vibrant leader, Dr Dickson Akoh, has worked hard to ensure that a chunk of Nigerian youths are employed through the Peace Corps platform.
“The rate of unemployment in Nigeria is a scourge that is prevalent amidst the youth which comprises the majority of the masses,” he stressed.
