It was a festival of a sort at the National Directorate Headquarters of the National Youth Service Corps (Yakubu Gowon House, Maitama-Abuja today, Tuesday, 4th January 2022 as members of staff comprising Directors, Deputy Directors, Assistant Directors and other categories including security, cleaners, and Corps members thronged out to welcome their Director-General, Major General Shuaibu Ibrahim, who came to the office for the very first time since his decoration with a new rank.
The unceremonious welcome parade which included a quarter guard saw the officers queued up from the gate to the reception of the headquarters building.
Amidst cheers, the staffers who could not hide their elation over their boss’ elevation to the pinnacle of his career hailed him for the unquantifiable tremendous achievements recorded during his two and half years in office.
While exchanging pleasantries with everyone that was on the long queue one after the other, General Ibrahim thanked them for their enormous contributions to the success recorded by his administration so far.
It maybe recalled that the news of the Director General’s upliftment from the rank of Brigadier General to Major General filtered the air in the 3rd week of December, 2021 and was subsequently decorated on Thursday the 30th day of the same month.
