Although The Minister refused to speak further on the development, a source within the Presidency had said there were signs Fadah might not last in office, going by reservations expressed by the Minister of Sports and Youth Development about his attitude.

According to a reliable source: “The Minister of Youths and Sports Development had cause to complain about the attitude of the DG to some big men. I knew he was not going to last”.

The former NYSC Boss, it was further gathered, has been instructed to hand over to the most senior official of the Corps, who will run it in an acting capacity until a new Director-General is appointed.

Fadah assumed office as NYSC DG in May 2022.
