The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has said that the challenges of welfare facing corps members on election duty are unfortunate and not part of the memorandum of understanding it signed with the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
The NYSC noted that the unpleasant occurrences are totally at variance with the spirit of memorandum, adding that it was currently meeting with the INEC management to address the corps members’ welfare issues before the rescheduled elections.
“While the incidents have been adduced to the logistics challenges with the INEC experienced, the NYSC wishes to note that the unpleasant occurrences are totally at variance with the spirit of our MoU with INEC.
“Therefore, we are currently engaged in discussion with INEC management towards ensuring that these and all other sundry issues bordering on the welfare and security of corps members are quickly addressed before the rescheduled elections,” NYSC stated.
