Nigerians have reacted after a National Youth Service Corps member was seen kneeling down as punishment after being ordered to do so by a Red Cross CDS supervisor.
The incident happened at Jos North NYSC secretariat in Plateau state.
Nigerians have condemned the act saying that the NYSC scheme has become a joke and avenue to mock and humiliate graduates who must have spent several years in the university all in the same of serving their fatherland.

lit_newz :”When fear is misunderstood for respect this is what you get. Many Nigerians don’t understand the very thin line that stands between fear and respect. What we call respect is actually fear, and as a result the average Nigeria youth has been stripped off his self confidence and dignity. Let’s be honest, why will anybody be asked to kneel or seat on the floor as a means of discipline if we really claim to be civilized??? All these are symptoms of SLAVERY SYNDROMES that Nigerians carry from generations to generations. SLAVES and MASTERS relationship is all that has engulf the Banana Republic called Nigeria.
