After the sacking of Brigadier General Muhammad Fadah, Christy Uba has taken up the mantle as the current acting Director-General of the National Youth Service Corp, NYSC.
The NYSC Director of Press and Public Relations, Mr . Eddy Megwa, in a brief on November 22, announced that Mrs. Uba, the corps’ Director of Information and Communications Technology, had taken up the position as the acting director general for the service corps.
Megwa’s statement had read: “The most senior director in the scheme has taken over the leadership of the corps in the capacity of overseer, pending the appointment of a substantive Director General by Mr. President.”
If President Buhari finally selects Mrs. Uba, for the role, she might just be the first-ever female Director General to be appointed, since the service scheme was established in 1973.
