The Director General National Youth Service Corps Major General Shu’aibu Ibrahim has disclosed that he will leave NYSC a fulfilled man, having done his best to bequeath lasting legacies.
He made this disclosure while addressing NYSC Inspectors at this year’s Inspectors’ Development Programme ( IDP) holding at the Public Service Institute of Nigeria, Abuja.
The Director General stressed the critical role of Inspectors as field officers who relate directly with Corps members and monitor their activities at the local government levels regularly.
While urging the Inspectors to reposition themselves for proper record keeping, General Ibrahim cautioned them against sharp practices which undermine the credible operations of the Scheme.
The DG acknowledged the support of Management and entire staff of the Scheme towards tackling contemporary challenges as they emerge.
He noted that since his assumption of office as DG, he has ensured effective implementation of the Scheme’s policies with utmost despatch. He charged the workshop participants to take good care of their health.
In his remarks, the Director, Corps welfare and Health services Mr Ayodele Folorunsho Omotade said that the theme of the Inspectors Development programme “optimising the ideals of the Scheme through effective utilization of the NYSC Inspector” was chosen to acquaint Inspectors with the necessary guidelines and processes that would enhance their capacities to perform optimally.
While thanking the DG for his disposition towards staff and Corps members’ welfare, he concluded that the Inspectors were set to move the Scheme to greater heights.
