In a reaction to the rumours, the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Malam Garba Shehu, stated that the reports were unfounded and legally illogical.
He said that the NYSC scheme is a creation of the law and only another law can repeal it.
Shehu urged Nigerians to disregard the reports as they all emanate from the works of mischief makers.
It would be recalled that the National Youth Service Scheme was established on May 22, 1973 by then Head of State General Yakubu Gowon (retd).
