The Director-General of the National Youths Service Corps (NYSC), Brigadier General Sule Zakari Kazaure, has warned corps members in Edo State to shun all night parties and avoid unneccessary journey.
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 Edo election and not to be involved in partisan.
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, warned the 1,614 corps members currently camped in Okada to respect the culture and tradition of the communities they would be posted to during the conduct of the governorship election scheduled to hold on September 10, 2016.
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.
“Respect the tradition and culture of your host communities. If they say they don’t want you to wear mini skirts, don’t wear it. Try to be ambassadors of your homes, ambassadors of the NYSC and your country, Nigeria,” he added.
He, however, urged the corps members to travel in group and not alone.
