Stop Using NYSC Members for Elections – Okupe Tells Govt

Doyin Okupe, former Senior Special Assistant on Public Affairs to former President Goodluck Jonathan has called on the government to stop using members of the National Youth Service Corps, NYSC for election duties.

According PM News, Okupe said “All principal participants must accept responsibility for this intolerable acts of savagery. By all principals I mean the PDP, APC and their leaderships, the INEC, and the entire gamut of our security agencies.

”In 2016, the wanton destruction of lives and properties that accompany our elections in varying degrees is no longer excusable. The frequent deaths of citizens, electoral officials, members of the security forces has assumed highly barbaric proportions. Of particular importance is the reported death of innocent Youth corpers.

”As a Nigerian parent whose children will still go through this national calling, I cease this opportunity to call on other Nigerian parents and well-meaning Nigerians to prevail on INEC to stop with immediate effect the deployment of our children for electoral services. We can no longer bear the pain of losing our wards to mindless acts of lawlessness by thugs and hooligans acting for and on behalf of reckless, desperate and irresponsible politicians and power mongers.
