Director General of National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), Brigadier General Johnson Olawumi, has called on corps members who are currently participating in the elections in the country to shun any form of inducement or gratification for the sake of their safety and credibility.

He told them to see their involvement in the exercise as patriotism and as part of their contribution to national development, hence the little allowances given to them should be accepted wholeheartedly without cutting corners.

The DG made this known in Kaduna while sensitising corps members on the need to be security conscious in addition to security arrangement put in place by the scheme in conjunction with Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

Represented by the Director of Procurement, Alhaji Bashir Salisu Yakasai, the DG also informed the corps members that the total election allowances is N26,000 only, payable directly to them by INEC through INEC/NYSC collaboration account.

“I urge you to be vigilant, behave very well and adhere to rules and regulations of the scheme. No form of inducement or gratification should be accepted by you,” he said, adding:

“It is not the matter of how much is being paid or collected, but patriotism and service to the country. And to complement that, we have made tangible arrangement with security agencies for protection before, during and after the election.”

Earlier, the State NYSC Coordinator, Mr. Hilary Nasamu, had said that participating corps members were doing the job voluntarily and are expected to give their best during the polls.

He however appealed to the public to give corps members maximum cooperation and protection during the gubernatorial and state assembly elections holding across the country tomorrow.
