Brigadier – General Sule Zakari Kazaure on Monday took over as 17th Director General of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) with a promise to prioritise the welfare of corps members and staff. Speaking at the handing over ceremony in Abuja, Kazaure acknowledged that the tasks ahead are huge, but with unity of purpose, they will be surmounted. “I know that the tasks ahead are enormous and the road is rough, but with unity of purpose we will make progress,” he said.
Earlier, the immediate past DG of NYSC, Brig-Gen. Johnson Olawumi, said their agitation to review the monthly allowance of the serving corps members would soon be yielding the desired result. He urged the Federal Government to expedite action on the process.
