Corps Members have been warned to avoid electoral malpractices as they would be participating in the forthcoming general elections as adhoc staff.
The Director-General, Brigadier General Suleiman Kazaure gave this warning today in Okada while addressing 1,989 Corps Members deployed to Edo State for the 2018 Batch “B” service year.
He said NYSC Management has put necessary machineries in place to ensure the safety of all Corps Members throughout the service year.
He added that any Corps Member that violates the electoral laws would be dealt with accordingly, as the scheme was committed to ensuring free, fair and credible elections.
The DG also advised the Corps Members to avoid lone and night movements but rather be security conscious at all times.
He specifically urged the female Corps Members to avoid provocative dresses which my put them at loggerheads with the cultural values of their host communities.
Kazaure said outstanding Corps Members in Community Development projects that put succour in their host communities would be rewarded at the end of the service year.
Earlier, Edo State Coordinator, Mr Adebayo Ojo said the Corps Members had exhibited high sense of discipline since the commencement of the camp.
He requested for the provision of 110 KVA Mikano power generating set from the Director-General adding that
“the transformer that regulates power to the camp had broken down before the commencement of the Orientation Course”
“There is no power supply from the national grid and it is our hope that the next Orientation will be held in the new camp”, Ojo said.
The Corps Members comprising 945 males and 1,044 females were all in high spirits to receive the Director-General.
