NYSC DG warns corps members against electoral malpractice



Director General of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), Brig. General Suleiman Kazaure, yesterday warned corps members participating in Saturday’s election not to indulge in electoral malpractice.

Kazaure, who was represented by the corps’ Director of Planning, Research and Statistics, Mrs. Victoria Okakwu, gave the warning in Ado-Ekiti, while addressing the 4,967 corps members who would participate in the poll.

News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the DG told them to discharge their duties effectively and efficiently, and in accordance with the rules and regulations of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

Kazaure urged them to ensure that they identify the problems facing them and report immediately to INEC officials, to avoid hitches at the polling centres.

The NYSC boss also advised the corps members not to be deceived by monetary inducement offered by politicians who might want to rig the election.

He said: “I wish to state clearly that on no account should any corps member participating in the governorship election indulge in electoral malpractice.

“Every corps member should not tolerate rigging, or any form of campaign at the polling units and whenever you have such incident, quickly report to the security officers around you.

Kazaure added: “In a situation whereby there is crisis, fighting and commotion in your polling unit, please secure your life first, because we do not want to record death of corps members in the election.
