Madumere calls for review of NYSC scheme … Says indigeneship in Nigeria must be dropped

Imo State Deputy Governor, Prince Eze Madumere has observed that the original aim of the foundation of the National Youth Service Corp (NYSC) was fast being lost and has called for the reform of the scheme.
The deputy governor made the observation recently at Okpe-Isoko, Isoko North Local Government of Delta State in his remarks during the burial of late Pa John Offuo father of Hon. Felix Offuo, the Media Aide to the immediate past governor of Delta State.
Stressing the affinity among the various ethnic groups in Nigeria, Prince Madumere urged that Nigerian youths  get exposed to them, adding that such would go a long way to strengthen cohesion and unity of Nigeria.
He further called for the abrogation of dichotomy between indigeneship and citizenship, advocating that any Nigerian that has lived in a place for a period of time should not be denied the right and privileges accorded to indigenes.
While condoling with Hon. Felix Offuo and the people of Okpe-Isoko on the death of one of their great dealers at the ripe age of 128 years, the Imo State deputy governor observed that the culture of the area is closely related to those of the Igbo.
