Ekiti election: NYSC DG warns corps members ahead of Saturday’s poll

The Director-General of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), Brig.
General Suleiman Kazaure, on Wednesday, warned corps members
participating in Saturday's gubernatorial election in Ekiti State 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 Saturday's election.

She told the corps members to discharge their duties effectively and
efficiently in accordance with the rules and regulations of the
Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

Kazaure urged them to report any discrepancy and plot to rig election
immediately to INEC officials to avoid hitches at the polling centres.

" I wish to state clearly that on no account should any corps member
participating in the July 14 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.

"Also, 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 deaths of corps members in the forthcoming election.

" I want to assure all of you that all your allowances will be paid in
due time; so I want all corps members to be rest assured that you will
be properly taken care of.

" But my advice for all you is to be law-abiding, uphold your
integrity and be neutral before and during the election on Saturday,"
she said.

Similarly, the Ekiti State Coordinator of the N‎YSC, Mrs Elizabeth
Okpongete, appealed to all corps members to abide strictly by all the
instructions that they had learnt during their training for the poll.

Okpongete, however, warned that ‎any corps member caught indulging in
electoral malpractice would face the wrath of the law.
