The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), has called on the Police to ensure the safety of corps members that would be on election duty on Feb. 23 and March 9. Mrs Oludolapo Akhile, the Kogi State Coordinator of the NYSC, made the appeal in Lokoja on Wednesday. Akhile spoke during a stakeholders meeting called by the Independent National Electoral Commission ( INEC) .
She accused the Police of being “lackadaisical towards the safety of the Corps members before the Feb. 16 election was postponed”, saying that such attitude must not be repeated. She also called on the Police to investigate the rumour that fake NYSC kits were in circulation in the state.
