Buhari Approves Appointment Of New NYSC DG

Eddy Megwa, NYSC Director, Press and Public Relations, confirmed to reporters on Sunday that Gen. Ahmed will officially be assuming office as the new DG on Monday.
Megwa noted that Yusha’u Ahmed will be taking over from Christy Uba who was named the overseer of the scheme following the removal of the 18th DG, Muhammad Fadah, in November 2022.
“We are going to release a statement tomorrow. The handing-over holds Monday by 11:30 am at NYSC headquarters, Abuja,” he noted.
Recalls that on 2 September 2022, a letter authored on behalf of the Governing Board of NYSC by its Chairman, Fatima Abubakar, and addressed to the Minister of Sports and Youth Development, Sunday Dare, listed a lot of issues against the DG, Muhammad Fadah.
The letter noted that some of the petitions against Mr. Fadah queried his academic qualifications and age, adding that the board had earlier called and spoken to the DG concerning the allegations “but failed to fulfill his promise to change.”
Following the series of complaints, Mr. Fadah was subsequently removed as the DG with effect from 16th November 2022.
