Corps Members SAFE During 2019 Election - NYSC

As the 2019 general elections approach, the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has assured corps members, who are usually engaged as ad hoc staff for election duties, of their safety.

Mr Muhammed Momoh, the Lagos State NYSC Coordinator, gave the assurance in an interview today in Lagos.

Momoh said that the NYSC was in collaboration with the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and security agencies to ensure that corps members on such civic duties are not exposed to harm.

“It is only when corps members feel safe that they can discharge their responsibilities as non-partisan ad hoc staff of INEC efficiently. All the security agencies have been directed to ensure that corps members are safe during elections. Over the years, since 2011 when we started working with INEC, we have seen remarkable improvement in the response of security agencies to corps members on election duties,’’ he said.
