The National Youth Service Corps, NYSC, has called on the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, to pay all outstanding training allowances and other entitlements of corps members who participated in last Saturday’s presidential and National Assembly elections.
The call was made on Monday by NYSC’s Director of Press and Public Relations, Adenike Adeyemi.
NYSC observed the need to avoid delay in the settlement of the allowances, as another phase of the general elections on March 9 is near.
The organisation also demanded that INEC and security agencies continue to develop strategies to ensure the protection of all corps members throughout this election period and thereafter.
NYSC Director-General, Maj.Gen. Suleiman Kazaure, appreciated the discipline and patriotism of corps members during the elections, urging them to be strong despite the challenges of welfare and insecurity.
