The National Youth Service Corps has signed a Memorandum of Understanding, with the Independent National Electoral Commission ahead of the 2019 general elections.
This was revealed yesterday by the Director General of NYSC; Brig. Gen. Suleiman Kazaure spoke in Jalingo during a working visit to 2018 Batch B corps members posted to Taraba state for the three weeks orientation course.
“Since corps members would be used as ad-hoc staff during the 2019 general elections, we have signed an MOU with INEC guaranteeing their safety among other things.
“We are also in constant talks with all security agencies and they have assured us of the safety of our corps members.” Kazaure said.
He also expressed optimism that the monthly allowance of corps members would be reviewed upward.
