​The Director-General, Brigadier General Sulaiman Kazaure, on the 11th of January paid a visit to Corps member, Eze Ejike Godwin, who is on admission in a hospital in Enugu, following injury sustained in a road traffic accident.


Godwin, who is serving in Kogi State, had traveled safely to his home state of Enugu during the yuletide period but later had accident there while riding a motorcycle, which resulted in a spinal cord injury.

Speaking at the MEMFYS Neuro-surgical Hospital, Enugu, the Director-General expressed sympathy with the Corps member, and said the visit was in furtherance of his administration’s commitment to the welfare of Corps members. 

“You know my key agenda is the welfare of my corps members and that is the main reason we are here, to see what we can do for him to solve the problem.

Kazaure said the NYSC Management had footed Godwin’s medical bill at the hospital to the tune of one million eight hundred thousand naira(1.8m).

While wishing him quick recovery, he used the occasion to call on Corps members to always avoid unnecessary journeys.

“We paid about N1.8m, and I will always emphasise that ‘corpers’ should, as much as possible, avoid unnecessary journeys.

Commenting, the Medical Director of MEMFYS Hospital, Professor Sam Ohaegbulam, said the Corps member had undergone a successful surgery, and is in a stable condition.
