Eta Mbora, who represents Calabar Municipal/Odukpani federal constituency of Cross River State in the lower chambers of the National Assembly has raised a bill seeking to provide automatic employment for graduates immediate after their National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) programme.
Speaking with TheCable on Friday, the federal lawmaker stated that the idea behind the bill is to enable the military, paramilitary agencies and other special services recruit willing graduates immediately after they have completed the one-year youth service.
“At the conclusion of their service year, there should be a process where the agencies will examine those interested to determine their qualifications to be employed,” he said.
“They should be able to now enrol them after the completion of service; that is for those qualified. That way, it can address the unemployment problem and job scams in Nigeria.
“Those willing to join the military and paramilitary agencies and other special services should be able to do so since they have served their country.”
