Ten members of the Nigerian National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) are set to depart Abuja for the Republic of India today as part of a Youth Exchange Programme organized by the Indian National Cadet Corps.
The annual event honours India’s Independence Anniversary and attracts young participants from various continents including Europe, Asia, and Africa.
During the pre-departure briefing at the Indian High Commission in Abuja, the NYSC Director General, Brigadier General YD Ahmed, expressed his gratitude for the invitation to partake in the programme, which marks the second time Nigerian youths will have this opportunity.
“We are deeply honored to receive this invitation, and we see it as another chance to highlight the capabilities of Nigerian youths as well as to understand our socio-economic parallels and divergences with India,” stated Ahmed.
Furthermore, the Director General emphasized the diversity within Nigeria and the central role of NYSC in fostering national unity and development.
