The new Director-General of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), Sule Kazaure, on Monday formally assumed duty as the 17th head of the scheme.
Kazaure was appointed by President Muhammadu Buhari on April 11 and he took over from Brigadier General Johnson Olawumi, who was in the office since January 6th, 2014.
Speaking during the handing-over ceremony in Abuja, Kazaure, a Brigadier-General, said he would ensure that the welfare of corps members and NYSC staff is prioritized and improved upon for better service delivery.
He also noted that, “I know that the tasks ahead are enormous and the road is rough, but with unity of purpose, we will make progress.”
In his remarks, the outgoing NYSC D.G, Johnson Olawumi, urged staffs to extend the cooperation he enjoyed during his stay to his successor, in order to achieve desired results.
