The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), wishes to inform the general public and, especially, Prospective Corps Members deployed to Ondo State, that due to the Ondo State Governorship Election slated for Saturday, 26th November, 2016, Ondo NYSC Camp would now open for the 2016 Batch ‘B’ Orientation Course as from Tuesday, 29th November to Monday, 19th December, 2016.
However, Thursday, 24th November, 2016 remains the commencement date for other states of the federation.
All Prospective Corps Members deployed to Ondo State for the 2016 Batch ‘B’ Orientation Course are to take note, please.
Meanwhile, the Director General of the NYSC, Brigadier General Suleman Zakari Kazaure has called on Corps members in Ondo State to be neutral and avoid any form of partisanship as they prepare to participate in Saturday’s gubernatorial election.
Brigadier General Kazaure gave the warning while addressing Corps members at the Dome international event centre, Akure in Ondo State as part of preparations to ensure a hitch free participation of corps members in the Ondo elections.
He charged them to eschew all negative vices that could tarnish the good image of the scheme especially, any form of material inducement from politicians.
“You must repeat the successes recorded by your predecessors in the 2011 elections and the recently concluded Edo elections in this coming exercise”, he reiterated.
The NYSC Boss quickly assured them of their safety as all security agencies are working tirelessly to protect and defend them.
About 3280 corps members have been trained by INEC to function as adhoc staff in the forthcoming Ondo Governorship election set to hold on Saturday, 26th November, 2016.
