The President of the National Youth Council of Nigeria (NYCN), Comr. Sukubo Sera-igbe Sukubo has written a passionate letter of appeal to President Muhammadu Buhari demanding the signing into Law of the Nigerian Peace Corps Bill as a parting gift and Monumental Legacy to the Nigerian Youth.
In a Letter dated May 4, 2023 the Youth President of Nigeria said the joy of the Nigerian Youth will know no bounds and the nationwide celebration will be endless at the breaking of the news if the Youth Council’s request be granted.
He continued that there will be no better way to say farewell to the Young People of Nigeria than to give the much anticipated Presidential Assent to the Bill already before President Buhari.
Comr. Sukubo argued that there was no reason for the President to decline his Assent this time around as the Federal Government under President Buhari has succeeded in pulling Nigeria out of Recession and placing the Nation back on fast track of Economic Growth, which was the major reason for decline the last time.
The President of NYCN further posited that all the grey and conflicting areas that contributed to the decline of Presidential Assent of the earlier Bill passed by the 8th National Assembly had now been carefully considered and thoroughly resolved by the 9th National Assembly before transmission to the Presidency.
The new Bill, he added, has addressed about 50% of challenges facing Youth Development in Nigeria, and has been designed to complement efforts of the conventional Security Agencies in grassroots Intelligence Gathering and Neighbourhood Watch.
Comr. Sukubo concluded by asserting that Nigerian Youths will be thrown into national mourning if the request of the Youth Council be turned down by President Buhari, and that if however granted, President Buhari would have further written his already great name in the book of national history with those Past Presidents that created Agencies as the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA), Nigeria Security and Civil Defense Corps (NSCDC), EFCC and others.
