Nigerians on social media have reacted to an opinion shared by Banky W, a musician turned politician in a recent interview.

Banky W who is aspiring to represent the Eti-Osa federal constituency in the National Assembly on the ticket of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) stressed that the NYSC program hasn't achieved what it was designed for.

Speaking in the Channels interview with Seun Okinbaloye said he will push to make the National Youth Corp Service compulsory and have it removed from the constitution.

Banky noted that the program does not serve the purpose it was created for and now serves as a hindrance to many Nigerian youths.

The singer also noted that even though he doesn't want the scheme to be scrapped completely, instead it could be turned into a skill acquisition scheme like tech hubs, fashion centres and others.
