The appointment of Brigadier-General Mohammed Fada as the new Director-General of the National Youth Service Corps has been authorized by President Muhammadu Buhari.
Fada, a Yobe State native, will succeed Major General Shuaibu Ibrahim, who served for two terms.
On Tuesday, our correspondent learned about this from a source.
“The Federal Government has appointed a new Director-General for the NYSC; he’s Brigadier General Mohammed Fada from Yobe State. He was in NYSC on Tuesday and has been briefed by the outgoing DG, Major General Shuaibu Ibrahim.
“After the farewell parade, Ibrahim will come and hand over and leave. It is good that when you’re leaving, it should be tears of joy and instead of people praying, ‘let this stupid go’ and tenure of three years will be like 20 years,” the source said.
Ibrahim is an Associate Professor of History and War Studies at the Nigerian Defence Academy, and is a native of Nasarawa LGA in Nasarawa State.
Prior to his appointment as the 18th Director General of NYSC, he was the Registrar of the Nigerian Army University in Biu, Borno State.
He graduated from the University of Abuja with a Bachelor’s degree in history (1989), an M.A. in history (1992), and a PhD in history (2007).
However, he completed his PGDE at Tai Solarin University of Education in Ogun State in 2007.
