The Director-General, National Youth Service Corps, Brig.-Gen. Shuaibu Ibrahim has commended the over 5,000 corps members deployed to Anambra for the governorship election to ensure a credible process.

Ibrahim applauded the corps members while monitoring the election in nine local government areas of the state.

In a statement signed by Mrs Adenike Adeyemi, the NYSC Director, Press and Public Relations, Ibrahim described the corps members’ participation in the electoral process as “patriotic”.

He however urged the corps members to remain impartial and perform their duties in line with established rules, the News Agency of Nigeria reports.

The corps members have written their names in the annals of history, having contributed towards the entrenchment of a credible electoral process.

“I urge them to remain impartial and perform their duties in line with the established rules. In all the polling units I visited, there were security agents on the ground, and the corps members informed me that the conduct of the exercise was peaceful,” Ibrahim said.

At least 5,000 corps members were deployed by the scheme to serve as polling officers during the conduct of the elections in the state.

The NYSC Director-General visited polling units across the 21 LGAs of the state to monitor and ensure the safety of corps members working in the areas.
