10 Corpers Off to India for Youth Exchange Course

Ten members of the National Youth Service Corps will visit India on Sunday to take part in a youth exchange program run by the Indian National Cadet Corps, according to an announcement made by the corps.

The Republic of India celebrates its independence anniversary annually, and people from Europe, Asia, Africa, and other continents attend the program.

This was said in a statement released on Saturday and signed by Eddy Megwa, the director of press and public relations of NYSC.

Brigadier General YD Ahmed, the director-general of the NYSC, thanked the Indian High Commission in Abuja during a pre-departure briefing exercise for inviting the scheme to be a part of the program.

The program has another chance, according to the DG, “to showcase the potentials of the Nigerian youths while also allowing participants to understand the socio-economic similarities and differences between the two countries,” with this invitation being the second one.

Speaking as well, the Indian High Commissioner to Nigeria, Shri Balasubramanian, acknowledged the program’s benefits to Nigeria’s development and disclosed that the program’s uniqueness and similarities to India’s National Cadet Corps were taken into consideration when choosing Nigeria to participate in the Youth Exchange Program alongside other nations.
