Members of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) who will be serving as ad-hoc staff during the forthcoming 2023 general elections have been warned against electoral malpractices.
The acting director-general of the NYSC, Charity Uba while on a working visit to the temporary Orientation Camp in Amada, Akko Local Government Area of Gombe state said any corps members found wanting will be made to face the law.
Uba also noted that the NYSC at a Federal Government initiative has for years played a huge role in the conduct of elections in the country and cannot afford to fall short of its expectation during the 2023 elections. She said having collaborated with the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for many years, the NYSC will not spare any corps member involved in any form of electoral offence.
Uba also noted that such corps members would face the wrath of the law as stipulated in the 2022 Electoral Act.
“If you must participate in the electoral process, you are encouraged to remain neutral and apolitical. Do not involve yourself in politics; you are corps members and you have a duty to your country; you have to be careful.
“If you fall foul of the law, you will be treated as any other Nigerian. There is no cover for corps members; when you carry a ballot box for anybody; you will go straight to prison.”
Focusing on ensuring that the corps members who would be participating in the election get the required training for the job, Uba debunked allegations that clinics in some camps in the country lacked medical supplies.
“The welfare of all corps members across the country is always given high priority. “Their feeding, health, and well-being is not negotiable; we collaborate with the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS) and I can tell you drug are always made available.”
