2023: Violate Electoral Laws and Go to Jail — NYSC Tells Corps Members
The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has warned corps members willing to participate in the 2023 general elections to be neutral and apolitical.
Mrs Christy Uba, the Acting Director General of NYSC, said this while addressing corps members at the Mbaukwu/Umuawulu Permanent Orientation camp, Awka South Local Government Area of Anambra on Saturday.
Uba witnessed the cultural carnival of the scheme Organised for members of 2023 Batch C in Anambra.
She said election duty was voluntary for corps members and those who wished to take part must eschew all forms of malpractice that could undermine the integrity of the poll or the reputation of the scheme.
“Participation in the election is voluntary, it is optional, you have a choice to make but if you have decided to participate, make sure you take part in all the training and sensitisation so that you can understand your role and boundaries,” she said.
