The time of job seeking by graduates will soon be a thing in the past as a Bill seeking to provide automatic employment for graduates immediately after their National Youth Service Corps, NYSC programme has been introduced.
Fotonz Grid learnt that the bill was introduced by Cross River State lawmaker, Rt. Hon. Eta Mbora, Member representing Calabar Municipality/Odukpani Federal Constituency in the National Assembly.
In an interview with TheCable on Friday, February 21, 2020, Mbora 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 compulsory one year NYSC service.
According to the Lawmaker:
“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.”
“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.”
