The Coordinator of National Youth Service Corp (NYSC) in Cross River State, Mr Adegoke Adewale, has charged corps members, who will serve as ad-hoc staff for the conduct of the general elections, to be security conscious.
Adegoke gave the advice in Calabar during a sensitisation programme organised by NYSC to prepare its members ahead of the general elections.
The coordinator reminded the corps members of their roles in ensuring their safety and the measures taken by security agencies to protect them during the elections.
According to him, corps members are too precious to their families, NYSC and the nation and as such they must avoid acts that may put them in harm’s way during and after the elections.
“Avoid unnecessary movements unless directed by security agencies and do not parley with any political party as this would expose you to danger.
Adhere to all electoral rules and regulations because Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has promised to take the welfare and maximum security of Corps members seriously,’’ he said.
