The President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), has approved the removal and immediate replacement of the Director General of the National Youth Service Corps, Brigadier-General Mohammed Fadah.
According to sources, the president’s decision was taken on Thursday, and comes amid concerns over “incompetence”.
The DG took over in May 2022 and became the 19th person to hold the position of NYSC DG.
Among his plans for the NYSC at the time of his appointment included “improvement of security and welfare of corps members; enhancement of staff welfare; and improving the gains of NYSC ventures”.
Fadah’s removal comes only six months after his appointment as the NYSC boss in May, 2022.
