Employ Graduates, Sign Peace Corps Bill – NANS urges Buhari


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.
