Election: CP advises corps members to uphold integrity of NYSC



The Commissioner of Police in Ondo State, Mr Abayomi Oladipo, has advised corps members to uphold the integrity of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) during the governorship election in the state.

Oladipo stated this on Tuesday when addressing the 2024 Batch ‘B’ Stream 1 corps members at the NYSC Permanent Orientation Camp in Ikare-Akoko, Ondo.

He warned the corps members not to allow any politician to use them for malfeasance during the conduct of the governorship election, scheduled for Nov. 16.

The CP said that corps members selected for conduct of the election should shun avarice and abide by the guidelines of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

Oladipo said that in spite of security challenges, police were ever ready to protect the corps members.

He assured the corps members of their safety in the state, saying that the police in collaboration with other security agencies were resolved to ensure peaceful atmosphere in the state.

The CP said he had tasked the Divisional Police Officers (DPO) and Area Commanders to intensify monitoring of corpers lodges and residential buildings occupied by corps members within their jurisdiction.

He encouraged the corps members not to misuse the privilege extended to them.

Oladipo implored them to alert security personnel of any security challenges or breach around their environment.

Also, the NYSC Coordinator in the state, Mr Sam Pepple, said that the police commissioner’s visit was an assurance to the corps members that they were safe in the state.

Pepple said that he was proud of the corps members and pleaded with them not to disappoint the scheme during the forthcoming election.

The coordinator appreciated the CP for the visit and sought for security coverage for corps members wherever they were posted within the state.
