She said that corps members would not be posted to work as ad hoc staff for the March elections in any state or area of the federation that had been adjudged as having security challenges.

According to Adeyemi, the NYSC does not allow corps members work in any security challenged area, whether it is for primary assignment or for elections and INEC understands that.

She said:

“Corps members are not allowed to work or live in such areas and this is understood by INEC. Once a place is adjudged and declared as having security challenges, corps members are not to serve there either for elections or primary assignments.

“Their security is always considered by the scheme during posting. “We have seen reports in the media claiming that corps members died during the presidential and national assembly elections.

 

“The NYSC Coordinator in Rivers already addressed this issue and set the records straight that no corps member serving as INEC ad hoc staff died during the Feb. 23 elections. “There were pockets of violence in the state but no corps member lost his or her life.

“Before corps members are deployed as INEC ad hoc staff, there must be an MoU between the two organisations and as part of the MoU, INEC is to provide welfare and security for the corps members. “Payment of renumeration is also fixed and disbursed by INEC.
