Deji Adebayo, Abuja
The Minister of Sports and Youth Development, Mr Sunday Dare has confirmed the sack of the Director-General of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), Brigadier-General, Mohammed Fadah.
The rumour of Fadah’s sack filtered out Thursday evening with many media houses quoting different Presidency sources.
However, Mr. Dare, in the early hours of Friday, responded to an inquiry earlier sent to him, confirming in the affirmative to the DG’s sack.
According to The Nation Newspaper, they asked: “Honourable Minister, please is it true that the President has approved the sack of the NYSC DG?”
Dare responded tersely, “yes” on Friday.
Although he did not speak much on the development, but another source within the Presidency said there were signs Fadah might not last in office, going by reservations expressed by the Minister about his attitude.
The source said; “The Minister of sports had cause to complain about the attitude of the DG to some big men. I knew he was not going to last.”
It was also gathered that the former NYSC boss has been instructed to hand over to the most senior official of the Corps, who will run it on acting capacity until a new Director-General is appointed.
Recall, Fadah was appointed into the office as NYSC DG in May, 2022.
