The Sultan of Sokoto, Sa’ad Abubakar III, on Sunday paid glowing tribute to the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), which he said has contributed immensely in keeping Nigeria peaceful, united and evenly developed.

Abubakar made the declaration in Sokoto when he received the Batch ”A” corps members deployed to the state who are undergoing the three-week orientation exercise of the one-year programme.

“The scheme has indeed lived above board and proved all its critics wrong. It has really been worthwhile.

“The scheme has given these energetic and highly educated youths the opportunity to contribute their own quota to national development,” he said.

The sultan extolled the contributions of the scheme in the areas of education, health, infrastructure and the entrenchment democracy in the country.

He promised to continue to render support to ensure the success of the scheme at all levels.
