2019 elec­tions: Be un­bi­ased — NYSC DG tells corps mem­bers

Daily Trust - - NEWS - From Bassey Wil­lie, Ye­nagoa

The Di­rec­tor­Gen­eral of the Na­tional Youth Ser­vice Corps, Bri­gadier-Gen­eral Suleiman Kaza­ure, has urged the corps mem­bers who would be se­lected as ad-hoc staff of the In­de­pen­dent Na­tional Elec­toral Com­mis­sion for the 2019 elec­tions to be un­bi­ased.

Kaza­ure made the call yes­ter­day dur­ing his of­fi­cial visit to batch C, stream 1 ori­en­ta­tion camp in Bayelsa State.

He also asked the corps mem­bers to use the op­por­tu­nity pro­vided by the NYSC Skills Ac­qui­si­tion and En­trepreneur­ship De­vel­op­ment pro­gramme to ac­quire skills that would equip them to be em­ploy­ers of labour and not seek­ers of jobs af­ter their ser­vice year.

Rep­re­sented by the Di­rec­tor, Corps Wel­fare and In­spec­torate, Sanusi Ab­dul-Rasheed, he also told the corps mem­bers to avoid un­nec­es­sary jour­neys.

He said: “Those of you that will be se­lected by INEC as ad-hoc staff dur­ing the 2019 gen­eral elec­tions must be un­bi­ased to pro­duce free, fair and cred­i­ble re­sults, the na­tion is count­ing on you.”

“On com­ple­tion of your ori­en­ta­tion course, you will be posted to your places of pri­mary as­sign­ment, you must take your Com­mu­nity De­vel­op­ment Ser­vice (CDS) se­ri­ously and ini­ti­ate vi­able projects that will ben­e­fit the ru­ral com­mu­ni­ties.”

The Co­or­di­na­tor of NYSC in the state, Loto Bo­lade, said corps mem­bers de­ployed to the state were ac­tively par­tic­i­pat­ing in over 13 dif­fer­ent skills.
