NYSC DG Tells Corps Members To Be Good Ambassadors

Ahead of the 2019 general elections in the country, Director-General of the National Youth Service Corps(NYSC), Major General SZ Kazaure has told corp members that participation as Ad-hoc staff is not compulsory.

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

He, however, urged them to see the exercise as a call to National duty for interested ones among them.

He urged the 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 however warned them that anyone that violates the electoral laws would be prosecuted accordingly.

“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”, he added.

INEC Administrative Secretary in Rivers State, Elder Etim Umoh added that the electoral body has made adequate security welfare packages for the Corps Members.
