The National Youth Service Corps has commended the patriotism of corps members engaged in the conduct of the governorship election in Anambra State.
The Director-General of NYSC, Brigadier General Shuaibu Ibrahim, made the commendation while monitoring the election in nine local government areas of the state.
A statement issued on Saturday night by the NYSC Director (Press and Public Relations), Adenike Adeyemi, quoted him as saying the corps members “have written their names in the annals of history, having contributed towards the entrenchment of credible electoral process.”
Ibrahim enjoined them to remain impartial and perform their duties in line with the established rules.
According to him, in all the polling units visited, there were security agents on the ground, while the corps members informed the Director-General that the conduct of the exercise was peaceful.
“At Unit 003 Ward 007 in Awka South Local Government, an election observer, Nwadishi Faith Ossai, from the Centre for Transparency Advocacy, was full of praises for the Director-General for taking time to go round and see how corps members were faring during the exercise.
