President Muhammdu Buhari has been hailed over his appointment of Brig. Gen S Ibrahim as the new Director General of National Youth Service corps, NYSC.
Recall that Major General SZ Kazaure was last week posted from National Youth Service Corps to Nigerian Army Resource Centre
The New Initiative for Credible Leadership, while welcoming the appointment of Ibrahim, said the choice of Brig. Gen. S. Ibrahim by Mr. President is in recognition of his sterling qualities as displayed as the pioneer Registrar of the Nigerian Army University, Biu, Borno State.
Samson Onwu, Executive Director of NICreL, at a press conference on Saturday, said the appointment of Ibrahim is a rounded peg in a rounded hole.
“NICrel wishes to state that it has followed the carrier path of Brig. Gen. S. Ibrahim from his days as the Research Officer, Institute of Army Education (IAE); Military Assistant to the Director General of NYSC 1996-1999; Staff Officer Military History, National Defence College (NDC) 2004 – 2009; Senior Instructor, Nigerian Army School of Education 2009 – 2011; Staff Officer I Books Resources Procurement, Headquarters Nigerian Army Education Corps 2011 – 2012; Commandant Command Secondary School Suleja 2012-2014; Head of Department, History and War Studies at the Nigerian Defence Academy Nigerian Defence Academy 2014-2018.
NICrel consequently states that the choice of Brig. Gen. S. Ibrahim as the director general of the National Youth Service Corps is indeed a testament to the resolve by President Muhammadu Buhari to reposition the NYSC for higher productivity and improving the lot of Youth Corps members in the country,” he said.
