The Director General of National Youths Service Corp NYSC, Brigadier General Shuaibu Ibrahim has stated that the NYSC Scheme under his leadership would not undermine the welfare of any Corps Member, as the Scheme is known for effective welfare within its jurisdiction.
The DG made this statement when the Gwarzo Consultative Forum in Kano State, led by the Chairman, Dr Habibu Sadauki, on a thank you visit to his office in Abuja on Thursday, on behalf of the people of Gwarzo Community for procuring prosthetic limbs for Corps Member Nurudeen Tahir. The DG said, “We will continue to act as a father to Nurudeen and we will do our best to ensure his full recovery. We must demonstrate good leadership over the children that are placed under our watch”.
It would be recalled that Corps Member Nurudeen Tahir, an indigene of Gwarzo in Kano State was involved in a road traffic accident after his Orientation Course in Taraba State last year, which led to the amputation of his only remaining arm having lost one at a tender age. In his resolve to improving the welfare of Corps Members, General Ibrahim approved the procurement of prosthetic limbs for Nurudeen Tahir which has been delivered to the Corps Member.
The Chairman of the forum commended General Ibrahim for his favourable disposition to Corps Members’ welfare. “We are highly moved by your compassionate gesture. We cannot thank you enough, the Gwarzo Community and Nurudeen’s parents are appreciative of your gesture”. He lauded the Director General for his visit to Nurudeen while on admission at the Federal Medical Centre Jalingo, also commended his compassionate efforts towards rescutsitating him back to normal life. “Thank you for all the support right from when he was on admission up till now”.
Dr Sadauki also commended General Ibrahim over his efforts in combating the menace of unqualified graduates trying to infiltrate the National Youths Service Corps Mobilization process.
