President Muhammadu Buhari has approved the immediate removal of Brigadier-General Mohammed Kukah Fadah from office as the director general of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC). Fadah had only been in his position as director general of the NYSC for a little over six months when the president ordered his removal.
Eddy Megwa, who is in charge of press and public relations for the NYSC, confirmed the news.
When Major General Shuaibu Ibrahim left the post as DG of NYSC in May 2022, Fadah became the 19th person to hold the position.

Even though the reasons for his firing have not been made public, media reports have said that the president fired Fadah because he was not good at his job.
Fadah is said to have been told to hand over to the NYSC’s most senior official.
The senior official who replaces Fadah is expected to act as DG of the corps until a new appointment is made.
When he became DG of NYSC, Fadah promised to improve corps members’ safety and well-being, improve staff’s well-being, and make NYSC Ventures more successful.
