2019: NYSC DG tasks corps members to support INEC on credible election
AS political activities in the country heighten ahead of the 2019 general elections, corps members serving across the country have been charged to engage only in activities that assist the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in conducting credible and acceptable elections.
The charge was given by the Director General of the NYSC scheme, Brigadier General Suleiman Kazaure, on Tuesday when he visited Corps members currently undergoing orientation at Wailo Camp in Bauchi state.
The Director-General who was represented by the Director, General Services in the NYSC headquarters, Habibu Kurawa, said that corps members should remainnon-partisan throughout their service year as they were mobilised by the NYSC to render patriotic services to all citizens.

While assuring that the management has concluded all arrangements with security agencies to protect the corps members during the general elections, the NYSC Boss, however, warned them against being induced with money by politicians to commit electoral malpractices just as he also advised them to stay from trouble zones and report chaos at their polling units.
Also speaking, the Bauchi state Coordinator of the scheme Mr Afolayan James who thanked the DG for the visit explained that the Corps members had exhibited a high level of discipline and were participating fully in camp activities.
He also urged them to carry out Community Development Services (CDS) in the state which is one of the cardinal objectives of the scheme.
