2,206 Corps Members Trained For Anambra Gov Poll 5

The Independent National Electoral Commission in Anambra State has trained no fewer than 2,206 corps members as ad-hoc workers for the November 6 governorship poll in the state.

The state Coordinator of the scheme, Mrs Yetunde Baberinwa, stated this at a cultural carnival held at the Azikiwe Unity NYSC Orientation Camp, Umuawulu/Mbaukwu in the Awka South Local Government Area of the state.

She said the corps members had been trained and registered by INEC for the exercise.

She said, “The scheme is committed to the entrenchment of credible electoral system in the country. The trained corps members are in good spirit to ensure seamless and credible election in the state.

“They have however been warned that any violation of the Scheme’s code of conduct would attract consequences as provided in the electoral law and the NYSC bye-laws.

“Political parties and their candidates have also been warned to play by the rules and avoid any acts capable of distracting corps members from discharging their assignment during the exercise.”

Baberinwa explained that the carnival was designed to bring corps members together to promote national unity as well as educate them on the diverse tribes and cultures of the country.

She added, “The cultural day celebration is to bring various cultures close to the young ones to appreciate and get familarised with them, to relate as friends and accommodate each other on camp and beyond,” she added.
