NYSC’S NEW DG TO CORPS MEMBERS: I’ll prefer to die than lose any of you

The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) Director General, Shuaibu Ibrahim, on Wednesday made promises to corps members including his readiness to die rather than lose any of them in their service year.

Ibrahim, who was recently appointed NYSC DG, made the promises during a visit to the NYSC Zonal Office in Akure, Ondo State capital.

He said, “I will prefer to die than losing a corps member. Keep yourself abreast of what is happening in your country, and make a difference as a corps member.

“I want to re-jig our skills acquisition programme. If you take it seriously, we have partners that are ready to lend you money. I am very passionate about the scheme and my corps members.

“I came for a youth programme, so I decided to visit you as my children. What will you be remembered for when you leave this place? Try as much as possible to keep your records clean.”

He told newsmen that his visit was an unofficial one, adding that one of his goals is to try and make sure the scheme did not totally depend on government for funds.
