The movie was produced to increase appreciation for the scheme’s relevance in promoting national unity, patriotism, peace, and cohesion.

The minister lauded the timely release of the movie as the relevance of the scheme has been under public scrutiny and debate in recent times, with many calling for its scrap.

“The timing of this movie could not have been better than now after weeks and months of debates about whether the NYSC is relevant or not and whether the scheme should be scrapped or should continue.

“The answer to the critics, to the anti-NYSC is in the premiere of this movie. This movie needs to travel and hit every viewing platform across Nigeria and in the diaspora; it must go viral.

“Let the message go out strong and clear, that the NYSC has come to stay. The scheme is more relevant now than it has ever been before in the country”.
