NYSC warns corpers against electoral malpractice

28 February 2013, 09:03

Kuje  -  Mrs Iloebe Regina, the Deputy Director, National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), on Wednesday urged the corps members in Kuje, FCT, to comply with electoral laws during the Area Council Election.

She made this call in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) at an awareness campaign on elections for corps members in Kuje.

Iloebe said the exercise was to sensitise the NYSC Corps members to the dangers of violating electoral laws during the forth-coming Area Council Election on March 16.

``The awareness is a clarion call for the corps members to contribute their quota towards national development through free and fair elections.

``We actually aim at sensitising the corps members for a free and fair Area Council elections in Kuje and the dangers of electoral malpractice during elections,” Iloebe said.

CSP Ismaila Magaji, Divisional Police Officer (DPO), Kuje Division, who spoke with NAN, assured the corps members of maximum security during the elections.

Magaji, who was represented by Mrs Rosemary Owendu, Administrative Officer, Kuje Division, however, warned the corps members to desist from electoral malpractice as it triggered violence during elections.

``Violators of electoral laws would be arrested, prosecuted and, if found guilty, punished in accordance with the law,” the CSP said.

A `batch C' Corps member, Mr Rufus Olatunji, told NAN that the corps members would abide by the electoral laws during the forth-coming elections in Kuje.

He, however, urged the security agencies to provide adequate security during the polls to enable them to work without fear or intimidation.
