The Director General, NYSC, Brig.-Gen. Mohammed Fadah, has urged corps members participating in the 2023 general elections to play according to the rules of the elections.
Fadah made the call in Bauchi on Sunday during his camp inspection tour to the state’s NYSC Permanent Orientation Camp, Wailo in Ganjuwa Local Government Area of the state.
According to him, corps members are expected to be neutral and remain non-partisan in any political activity.
After your service, you are entitled to any political party that you think is worthy for you to be a member. Please, don’t involve yourselves in anything political,” the DG said.
Fadah reminded the corps members that their personal safety was their personal responsibility, both during and after the camp, urging them not to stand by the road side in search of free ride.
He advised them to go to the appropriate motor parks to board vehicles for their journeys, saying “this is because you may end up in a bad place while searching for a free ride”.
Earlier, the state Coordinator of NYSC, Alhaji Namadi Abubakar, said 1,511 corps members had been registered in the camp for the 2022 Batch B stream II NYSC service.
He said out of the number, 766 were males while 745 were females, adding that they had been conducting themselves maturely and participating in all the camp activities.
