Hundreds of Youth Core members who managed to escape or got evacuated from the Northern part of the country during the post-election violence that claimed the lives of some of their colleagues have vowed never to return to the region to complete their service. They are asking for re-deployment to the South or they are done with the NYSC.I seriously think they do have a strong case. For one, I wouldn’t return back to such a place after coming face to face with death. I hear the Lagos state Government are willing to absolve their indigenes if only the NYSC gives the go ahead. By law, NYSC reserves the right to redeploy youth core members. I ask what they are waiting for.
