The director-general of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), Brig-Gen Sule Kazaure, has cautioned corp members taking part in the Anambra governorship election against engaging in any unlawful practice.

The NYSC DG made this known while addressing some corps members in Awka on Tuesday.

Kazuare was represented by Rosemary Okonghae, Director of Corps Welfare and Inspectorate at the National Headquarters.

The DG said they were chosen based on their supposed neutrality and non-partisanship.

Kazuare said: ”Corps members are not immune to prosecution for electoral malpractice, obey the laws of the election and maintain the neutrality and non-partisanship which you were selected for this job for.

”We have put in place all the necessary measures to ensure your safety during the elections.”

The NYSC boss charged corps members to be sensitive to their environment, security-conscious and discharge their duties with all fairness.

He also assured corps members that their allowances for training and election exercise had been worked out and guaranteed.
