NYSC Condemns Alleged Election Misconduct Involving Corps Member in Osun

the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has condemned an alleged act of electoral misconduct involving a corps member, Orji Nkenna, and some staff of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in Osun State. This was contained in a statement by NYSC Director of Press and Public Relations Eddy Megwa on Sunday in Abuja. According to him, it is quite unfortunate that Nkenna, who is one of the accused persons, can degrade himself in such a heinous act. “We have also noted that the case is under investigation and if he is found guilty, the law should be invoked accordingly. “The NYSC, as the organization responsible for youth training, hereby disassociates itself from such an unpatriotic act by the culprits,” it said. Megwa said that the corps members’ participation in previous elections in the country was due to their record of impeccable performances in various previous national assignments. He added that the scheme was proud of everyone who stuck to the rules. He also said that all corps members, from orientation camps, were always sensitized by NYSC and INEC officials about their roles during elections, including statutory penalties, should they violate election laws. ”Consequently, any member of the body that is involved in any form of electoral crime must fully face the wrath of the law, as stipulated in the electoral act. ”NYSC will continue to play its role in promoting the unity and integration of the country, as it has done in its almost 50 years of existence. “With the 2023 general election just around the corner, the NYSC will continue to build on the longstanding partnership with INEC to ensure free, fair and credible elections to the delight of all Nigerians and the world at large.” The Nigerian News Agency (NAN) reports that the Osun Police Command said on Saturday that it has arrested Nkenna, an INEC supervisor and another, for being responsible for the lack of Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs). Command spokeswoman Yemisi Opalola alleged that the defendants and other fugitives rigged the collection of PVC at their Local Government Collection Office, Atakumosa West Local Government Area.
