Scrap NYSC

A picture is worth more than words
The way for a better world
Rather than welcome with shouts and insults
What about a civilized discussion for the nations’ salt
Let us take away the low health standard
Give better toilets, bathrooms and raise a standard
Not having to pay to charge phones and gadgets
Even if with a generator get access to constant electricity
Not getting mud and typhoid in exchange for clean water
And not made to roll with a smile and suppressed vengeance in the gutter
Not a year spent in a field the student wouldn’t go to even in a nightmare
And earning below those whose arms has given them amnesty
A time when their intellect is valued beyond their sex, religion and affiliation
Raise a model for the young guns to see a working country
For if all that is learnt in the process remains the slave-relationship with the military
Getting better placement based on affiliations
Staying in pig-holes called hostel while barked upon worse than prisoners
Paid less than nothing and told to get ready for the baton never given
The unaffiliated serving in schools as teachers for what they don’t know or have passion for
Where promises are made to graduates who suppose to yield result
As national integration is affected by pockets of unrest
NYSC – a model for a microscopic working Nigeria
If it won’t work, let’s scrap it and reduce wage bill for Nigeria
