Image result for NYSCThe Senate has urged the Federal Government to overhaul and reposition the NYSC in the interest of corps members.

The resolution followed a review of the death of three corps members – Miss Oladepo, Miss Elechi Chiyerom and Mr. Ukeme Asuquo in orientation camps in Kano, Zamfara and Bayelsa.

Chief Whip Senator Olusola Adeyeye, (Osun Central) painted the pathetic deaths of the corps members at the NYSC camps.

Senators in plenary agreed with Adeyeye that steps should be taken for the total overhaul of NYSC scheme.

The Senate agreed that the state of orientation camps across the country was unfit for human habitation.

Apart from total overhaul of the scheme, the Senate urged the government to immediately improve medical facilities in all NYSC orientation camps including deploying experienced medical personnel in the camps.

The upper chamber also mandated its Committee on Sports and Youth Development to conduct a thorough and comprehensive investigation into the circumstances surrounding the death of the three corps members in order to prevent future occurrence.
