Christy Uba takes over as NYSC ‘overseer’ pending appointment of DG
Christy Uba, director of information and communications technology, National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), has taken over the leadership of the corps in “overseer” capacity.
The development was announced on Tuesday in a statement by Eddy Megwa, NYSC director of press and public relations.
The development comes days after Mohammed Fadah was removed from his position as director-general of the NYSC.
We reported that Fadah was removed over alleged incompetence, and asked to hand over to the most senior official in the corps.
Fadah’s removal came less than seven months after he assumed office — he took over in May 2022 and became the 19th person to hold the position of NYSC DG.
In the statement on Tuesday, Megwa said Uba will act in the capacity of an “overseer”, pending the appointment of a new director-general for the corps.
“Following the removal of Brigadier General Muhammad Kaku Fadah as Director General, National Youth Service Corps, by President Muhammadu Buhari GCFR, Mrs Christy Uba, Director, Information and Communications Technology, 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,” the statement reads.
