2019 Elections: Participation As INEC Ad-hoc Staff Not Compulsory - NYSC DG Tells Corps Members

Director General of the National Youths Service Corps (NYSC), Major Gen. Kazaure has told Corps Members that they are not under compulsion to participate in the forthcoming elections as the INEC ad-hoc staff but rather see it is a call to National duty for interested ones among them.

Kazaure stated this in Port-Harcourt while addressing Corps Members in Rivers State as part of his efforts towards sensitizing them on electoral conduct.

He, however, urged Corps Members to build on the legacies of their predecessors by contributing their quota to the development of democratic process of the country.

The NYSC boss warned them that anyone who violates the electoral laws would be prosecuted accordingly.

He said;
"In 2011 and 2015 some Corps Members like you made us proud as good ambassadors of the NYSC Scheme during elections".
"When you are in danger, run to the nearest police station or military post. Don't collect food or any form of gratification from politicians and remember to be security conscious".
