Responding, the Director General of NYSC appreciated the governor for identifying with the Scheme in its trying moment.


He equally used the medium to thank the government and good people of Zamfara state for standing by NYSC, particularly when he and management of the Scheme had to spend over two weeks in the state making effort to secure the release of the kidnapped Prospective Corps members.


Gen Ahmed specifically applauded the Emir of Tsafe, His Royal Highness Alhaji Muhammadu Bawa for his uncommon hospitality each time NYSC team was in his domain on account of the abductees.
