Former NYSC DG, Brig. Gen. Edet Akpan is dead. He died in Uyo, Akwaibom state.
The sad news was confirmed by the Director, Press and Public Relations of NYSC, Adenike Adeyemi.
Brig. Gen. Edet Akpan was the fourth NYSC DG. His administration from 1984 to 1988 led to the introduction and institution of the NYSC flag and anthem which are still in use.
His tenure also established NYSC farms across Nigeria and “enhanced the Community Development Service (CDS) of corps members”.
May his soul rest in peace.
