The information reaching us has it that the National Youth Service corp, NYSC and INEC has concluded arrangements to make use of serving corp members as electoral officers during the 2015 elections.
Director General of NYSC, Brig. General Johnson Olawunmi made this known in an interview with News Agency of Nigeria, (NAN) in Obubra, Cross River State.
Brig. General Johnson further said that any corp member caught taking money or involved in rigging will be severally punished. (Who will give them the money in the first place?)
According to him, (Brig. General Johnson) NYSC Corps members will be well educated and enlightened on how to handle election materials in all local government areas of the federation, he also stated that, the INEC and NYSC will pay corp members allowance for participating in the exercise.
The D-G expressed satisfaction with the security arrangements in the Obubra camp and thanked Governor Liyel Imoke of Cross River for ensuring adequate protection of corps members serving in the state.
He advice corp members to be job creators as this will help reduce the level of unemployment in the country.
May God protect us all doing the election period.
