Sequel to the arrest of a corp member of the National Youth Service Corp in electoral fraud by the Osun State Police command, the NYSC authority has now reacted to the issue.
It will be recalled that the Police command’s Spokesperson, SP Yemisi Opalola, alleged that the accused and others at large, manipulated the collection of PVCs at their Local Government Collection office, in the Atakumosa West Local Government Area.
The NYSC spokesman, Megwa said it is rather unfortunate that the corp member named Nkenna, who is one of the accused persons, could debase himself into such an atrocious act.
”We have also noted that the case is under investigation, and if found guilty, the law should be invoked accordingly.
”The NYSC, as a responsible youth-moulding organisation, hereby dissociates itself from such unpatriotic act of the culprits,”
”Consequently, any corps member that engages himself in any form of electoral offence, must squarely face the wrath of the law, as stipulated in the electoral act.
”NYSC will continue to play its role of promoting the unity and integration of the country, as it has been doing in its almost 50 years of existence.
”With the 2023 general elections around the corner, the NYSC will not relent in consolidating the long-existing partnership with INEC, towards ensuring a free, fair, and credible election, to the delight of all Nigerians and the world at large,” he said.
