#NigeriaDecides: INEC promise automatic employment for corps members who do well on election duty
According to him, Corps members who do well during the election will be given automatic employment.
“Those who do exceptionally well during elections are accorded automatic employment by the commission. We would continue to improve on the welfare of corps members during elections and do whatever we can to protect them in the course of election duty,” he said while responding to a question on the welfare of corps members during the election.
He noted that youth corps members were among the most educated, most reliable, most patriotic, and most readily available ad-hoc staff they have and can never joke with their wellbeing.
“Arising from my interaction with DG NYSC yesterday, they are looking at how they can mobilise mattresses, used by the youth corps members in camp to places where the youth corps members are going to stay the night so that the layover before we open the polling units on Saturday can be more comfortable for them,” he continued
“I am waiting for the DG NYSC to submit the details to the commission, but I want to assure you that anything that the commission can do to make the corps members comfortable, and all other staff, including their welfare and security, we will do.” he added
