First Lady Aisha Muhammadu Buhari has facilitated the employment of two physically challenged ex-corps members, Onogberie Efe Lulu and Nuruddeen Tahir, in the Federal Civil Service.
Deputy Director, Press and Public Relations, National Youths Service Corps, Emeka Mgbemena, in a statement, said this was due to the NYSC Director-General Shuaibu Ibrahim’s persistent advocacy for stakeholders’ support, especially on corps members’ welfare.
