Buhari Sacks NYSC DG Six Months After His Appointment

President Muhammadu Buhari has reportedly sacked the Director-General of the National Youth Service Corps, Brigadier-General Mohammed Fadah, six months after he was appointed into that position.

Though when contacted, NYSC spokesman, Eddy Megwa, declined to comment on the said development.

However, The Cable quoted sources saying the president’s decision was taken on Thursday.

Fadah was appointed NYSC boss in May, 2022.

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”.

Other areas in his plans  are “sustaining the digitisation of the operations of the scheme; and deepening NYSC’s impact on rural development through community development service”.

The Cable reported that Fadah was asked to hand over to the most senior official in the NYSC.

The official who takes over from him will act as DG pending the announcement of a new appointment.
