Honorable Zakariya Dauda Nyampa, representing Michika/Madagali constituency of Adamawa state at the Federal House of Representatives, has advocated that fresh graduates be enlisted into the Nigeria military.

Speaking during a virtual meeting organised by non-government organisation, Nyampa, suggested that compulsory military service should replace the one-year National Youth Services Corps (NYSC).

He added that graduates who are not interested in continuing their career with the military after their compulsory service, should be allowed to venture into other endeavour after the mandatory one-year training and service in the Nigerian army.
