Maj.-Gen. Edet Akpan, a former Director-General of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) is dead.
Akpan, the fourth NYSC DG, died in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State capital.
Adenike Adeyemi, Director, Press and Public Relations of NYSC, made the announcement in a statement on Monday.
The spokesperson noted that the deceased repositioned the scheme on the path of growth.
Adenike recalled that Akpan’s administration – 1984 to 1988 – led to the introduction and institution of the NYSC flag and anthem which are still in use.
She added that Akpan’s tenure established NYSC farms across Nigeria and “enhanced the Community Development Service (CDS) of corps members”.
Adeyemi said that the scheme was “consoled by the fact that he lived a worthy life”.
NYSC said Akpan touched so many people and institutions, “the hallmark of a purposeful life that shall outlive him”.
Meanwhile, NYSC DG, Brig. Gen. Ibrahim Shuaibu, has given an update on mobilization and orientation of corps members.
