“NYSC DG visits Ailing Legend, Wole Adetiran”

Your photo’ll be displayed at NYSC museum, DG tells corps anthem composer Oluwole Adetiran

Director-General of National Youth Service Corps, Brig.-Gen. Shuaibu Ibrahim, on Thursday, paid a courtesy visit to Dr. Oluwole Adetiran, who composed the scheme’s anthem in 1984.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that Ibrahim led a high-powered delegation of NYSC to the residence of Adetiran, who recently turned 74, at Ibafo in Obafemi-Owode Local Government Area of Ogun.

The director-general said that he learnt through the social media last Saturday that Adetiran was seriously ill and he thought that the man deserved to be honoured with a visit.

“I decided to follow up on the phone number that was dropped on the social media report, made my investigations and decided to come here from Abuja to visit him,” he said.

Ibrahim described Adetiran as a patriotic Nigerian whose contributions to the scheme through the composition of the anthem could not be quantified in monetary terms and which would live beyond him.

The NYSC boss noted that the wordings of the anthem were quite philosophical and had continued to be a source of inspiration to serving and past corps members that they should put the nation first wherever they found themselves.

The wordings of the anthem have been so inspiring to our corps members and you will observe that they are everywhere serving the nation.

“The corps members are always involved in the conduct of elections and population census, while their contributions during the heat of COVID-19 pandemic and other national assignments have been tremendous.

“This visit is partly to encourage our corps members and our youths that when you serve and honour your country, your country will not forget you,” he said.

The director-general urged the corps members to continue to meditate on the wordings of the anthem so as to be propelled continually to render selfless service and be agents of unity for the country.

Ibrahim, who presented an undisclosed cash gift to the ailing Adetiran, assured that NYSC would not abandon him in his trying period.
