Maj.- Gen. Suleiman Kazaure, the Director General of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), on Saturday said that any corps member that violate electoral laws during the forthcoming general elections would be prosecuted.
To this end, Kazaure, warned corps members that would be on election duty against unnecessary ‘friendship’ with politicians in order to avoid any form of inducement.
Kazaure, who addressed corps members in Enugu, on the sidelines of the forthcoming general elections, charged them to be good ambassadors of the scheme and their families.
He said that security agencies had been mobilised to provide cover for the corps members and should not lose sight of security tips while on the field.
He cautioned them against taking any form of inducement and friendship with the locals while at their duty posts.
“Study your environment and be security conscious. When face with obvious danger, secure yourself first.
“Do not enter vehicles belonging to politicians and strangers as the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) will provide all your needs,”he said.
