NYSC WITHDRAWS CORP MEMBERS FROM CRISES AREAS IN ANAMBRA
Written by thereachfm on March 7, 2019
The management of the National Youth Service Corps has withdrawn corps members from crisis-prone areas of Anambra State in Saturday’s elections after a female corps member was reportedly abducted in the state during the 23rd February presidential National Assembly elections in the state.
Reports say that the state NYSC coordinator, Kehinde Aremu, had written to INEC in the state asking for the withdrawal of corps members from those areas based on the directive from the headquarters barring corpers from volatile areas.
Confirming the withdrawal, the Resident Electoral Commissioner in the state, Nwachukwu Orji, said an alternative measure had been made to take care of the situation.
The REC further said the decision would not pose any challenge to the Saturday poll in the state, noting that the electoral umpire had more than enough trained staff to replace the corps members.
