NYSC was created on 22 May, 1973 with the aim of using it as a tool for the reconciliation, reconstruction, and rebuilding of the nation after the Civil war It was established based on decree No. 24 that stated that the scheme was created "with a view to the proper encouragement and development of common ties among the youths of Nigeria and the promotion of national unity".

As to why the scheme is specifically important for Nigerian youths, read the below:

The objectives of the National Youth Service Corps Scheme are clearly spelt out in Decree No.51 of 16th June 1993 as follows:

To inculcate discipline in Nigerian youths by instilling in them a tradition of industry at work, and of patriotic and loyal service to Nigeria in any situation they may find themselves.

To raise the moral tone of the Nigerian youths by giving them the opportunity to learn about higher ideals of national achievement, social and cultural improvement

To develop in the Nigerian youths the attitudes of mind, acquired through shared experience and suitable training. which will make them more amenable to mobilisation in the national interest

To enable Nigerian youths acquire the spirit of self reliance by encouraging them to develop skills for self employment

To contribute to the accelerated growth of the national economy

To develop common ties among the Nigerian youths and promote national unity and integration

To remove prejudices, eliminate ignorance and confirm at first hand the many similarities among Nigerians of all ethnic groups

To develop a sense of corporate existence and common destiny of the people of Nigeria.

The equitable distribution of members of the service corps and the effective utilisation of their skills in area of national needs

That as far as possible, youths are assigned to jobs in States other than their States of origin

That such group of youths assigned to work together is as representative of Nigeria as far as possible

That the Nigerian youths are exposed to the modes of living of the people in different parts of Nigeria

That the Nigerian youths are encouraged to eschew religious intolerance by accommodating religious differences
That members of the service corps are encouraged to seek at the end of their one year national service, career employment all over Nigeria, thus promoting the free movement of labour
That employers are induced partly through their experience with members of the service corps to employ more readily and on a permanent basis, qualified Nigerians, irrespective of their States of origin. Unfortunately, most employers discard these young graduates, waiting for the next orientation programme to get a fresh set of graduates.
In summary, the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) is compulsory for all Nigerian youths who finish their higher education studies, because it is a scheme designed to promote the understanding/integration of various cultures in Nigeria and train youths to be enlightened leaders of tomorrow.

The scheme was instituted immediately after the Nigerian Civil War by the then Military Head of State - General Yakubu Gowon.
