INEC/CORPS MEMBERS’ WELFARE
Written by thereachfm on February 19, 2019
The National Youths Service Corps has said the welfare challenges facing corps members on election duty are unfortunate and not part of the memorandum of understanding it signed with the Independent National Electoral Commission.
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.
In a statement yesterday by its Director of Press and Public Relations, Adenike Adeyemi, the body said INEC had assured it of adequate arrangements for transport, accommodation and security, noting that it expected improved safety and welfare.
He added that they were currently ironing out modalities bordering on the welfare and security of corps members to ensure they are quickly addressed before the rescheduled elections.
