    While thanking President Muhammadu Buhari for considering him worthy of the appointment, he noted that he is aware of the daunting challenges and the bumpy road to success but expressed optimism that with maximum cooperation, the task would be achieved.

    Earlier in his farewell address, the immediate past DG, Brig.-Gen. Johnson Olawumi thanked the top Management and staff of the scheme for the enormous cooperation accorded him all through his tenure.

    Olawumi however lamented his administration’s inability to execute some programmes and activities like the sports and cultural festival due to paucity of fund but added that the management is at the verge of securing a sponsorship deal of 150 million naira with GLOBACOM Nigeria Ltd.

    He also hinted that his challenges while in office include the increasing corps population with lean financial resources but added that efforts were in gear to increase corps members allowances.

    The erstwhile NYSC boss urged the new NYSC helmsman to prioritize staff and corps members’ welfare during and after orientation camps in order to boost their morale for optimal productivity.

    In his vote of thanks, the Director Human Resource Management, Chief Anthony Ani, expressed appreciation to the President for appointing an Officer of General Kazaure’s calibre as the Director-General stressing that in the history of the forty-three year old Scheme, this would be the first time a Ph.D holder will be heading the Scheme.

    He assured the new Director-General of maximum cooperation of all staff.
