Represented by the Bauchi State Coordinator of the scheme, Alhaji Namadi Abubakar, the DG enjoined the corps members to participate in the elections with a high sense of responsibility and remained neutral throughout the exercise.

“As was the case with the previous elections conducted from 2008, Corps members will form the majority of ad hoc personnel that will be enlisted for the conduct of the exercise.

“It will interest you to know that the performance of your predecessors contributed to the credibility of the previous elections and earned NYSC accolades from both local and foreign observers.

“As you get set to partake in this important national assignment, I would like to assure you that we have secured the commitment of the Independent National Electoral Commission and security agencies regarding your welfare and safety before, during and after the elections,” he said.
