The promotion of the NYSC DG to Maj. – Gen excites the staff.
The staff of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has congratulated Major General Shuiabu Ibrahim, the Director General, on his recent promotion by the Nigerian Army.
On Thursday, the NYSC headquarters in Abuja hosted a celebration.
Mrs Chris Ubah, Director of NYSC ICT and Information, welcomed dignitaries and stated that the DG has succeeded in reshaping the Scheme to an enviable height. She described him as a councillor, teacher, and father to the staff, emphasizing that prosperity will not forget the scheme’s reformation.
Ibrahim, she said, would not be easily forgotten in the scheme’s history.
The minister’s representative, Alhaji Ismael Abubakar, Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Youth and Sport Development, praised the DG for his development vision and ability to redirect the Scheme’s vision for effective empowerment of corps members through the NYSC’s entrepreneurship strive.
He promised that the ministry would continue to support any positive initiative that would help the scheme meet its goals.

The Executive Governor of Nasarawa State, Engr. Abdullahi Sule, praised the Chief of Army Staff for promoting the DG, saying the DG is a true ambassador of the state because he has redefined the scheme, adding that the introduction of businesses into the scheme is worth commending because corps members can now leave the center and be independent.
He claimed that when the DG was brought into the scheme, he began to think outside the box because the corps members were not proud to be serving their country.
In response, the DG, Major General Shuiabu Ibrahim, praised President Muhammadu Buhari and the Chief of Defence Staff for their achievements and promotions, while emphasizing that everything he has accomplished on this planet has been thanks to the prayers of those he has touched.
He also used the opportunity to urge the Nigeria Governors Forum to support the creation of the NYSC Trust Fund, which will help to empower corps members and enable entrepreneur corps members to help millions of Nigerians escape poverty.
