The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has warned corps members willing to participate in the 2023 general elections to be neutral and apolitical.
Mrs Christy Uba, the Acting Director General of NYSC, said this while addressing corps members at the Mbaukwu/Umuawulu Permanent Orientation camp, Awka South Local Government Area of Anambra on Saturday.
Uba witnessed the cultural carnival of the scheme organized for members of 2023 Batch C in Anambra.
She said election duty was voluntary for corps members and those who wished to take part must eschew all forms of malpractice that could undermine the integrity of the poll or the reputation of the scheme, as NYSC would not hesitate to surrender any corps member with a proven case of electoral malfeasance to the state to face the laws of the land.
Uba however, commended the corps members for their good behaviour in camp while charging them to go to their places of primary assignment and contribute to national development through service to communities.
