Unazi said Ahmed is perfect for sanitizing the scheme that has become a laughingstock, riddled with corruption, nepotism and prejudice.

Noting that the Army Brigadier General is a competent, transparent and focused officer, Unazi said he is tailor-made for the job.

He added that Ahmed is well armed with the required academic and military experience and exposure to restore the Scheme to its glory days.

According to Unazi, the new head of NYSC is well aware of the high expectations of Nigerians and will not let them down.

As an insider who once served as a military aide to one of NYSC’s biggest reformers in the past, the Center said Ahmed is no stranger to the Scheme.

Therefore, he called on all NYSC patriots, stakeholders and staff to support Ahmed in his quest to revive the Scheme.

Unazi said that the brigadier general, though calm, principled and modest, is an embodiment of ideas who goes the extra mile to implement his virtues.

While applauding the Federal Government for its timely intervention to save the scheme from further mockery, the Center charged it with supporting Ahmed for the future.

However, the Center tasked the new NYSC CEO to get going immediately, as he had done on previous assignments.
