The Director General of the National Youths Service Corps (NYSC), Brigadier General Sule Zakari Kazaure, has warned corps members in Edo State against getting involved in partisan politics during the conduct of the governorship election scheduled to hold on September 10. Brig Gen Kazaure specifically told corps members that would be selected as ad hoc staff of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to display high level of patriotism during the conduct of the election.
The NYSC boss stated this when he paid a special visit to the Edo State orientation camp of the NYSC at Okada Grammar School, Okada in Ovia North East Local Government. Kazaure who inspected facilities at the temporary orientation camp such as the clinic and hostel accommodations, warned the 1,614 corps members currently camped in Okada to respect the culture and tradition of the communities they would be posted to.
He said, “You know very well that Edo State will be going into election between August and September and some of you will be used by the INEC. I want you to be neutral and not partisan. Don’t be partial and involve yourselves in the local politics of your host communities.
