The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) in Anambra State has disclosed its preparedness to deliver a credible electoral process in the November 6 governorship election.
State Coordinator Mrs. Yetunde Baberinwa spoke at the weekend at the scheme’s carnival ceremony at the Nnamdi Azikiwe Unity Orientation Camp, Umuawulu/Mbaukwu, in Awka South Local Government.
She said 2,206 corps members have been registered and trained by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in the state for the exercise.
Baberinwa said the corps members would carry out a transparent process without fear or favor, adding that they had conditioned their minds to serve their fatherland.
Said she: “The scheme is committed to the entrenchment of credible electoral system. The trained corps members are in good spirit to ensure seamless and credible election in the state.
“They have, however, been warned that any violation of the scheme’s code of conduct will attract consequences, as provided in the electoral law and the NYSC bye-laws.
“Parties and their candidates have also been warned to play by the rules and avoid any act capable of distracting corps members from discharging their assignment during the exercise.”
Baberinwa said the carnival was designed to bring corps members together culturally to promote national unity as well as educate them on the diverse tribes and culture of the country.
“The cultural day celebration is to bring cultures close to the young ones to appreciate and get familiarized with them. To relate as friends and accommodate each other on camp and beyond,” she added.
