“As you are aware, my priority since I assumed duty is the issue of security and welfare. The welfare of the corps members as well was presented to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and it promised to take care of it,” he said.

“Not only their security but wherever they will be taken to – right from where they will sleep before being taken to their respective places of duty.

“INEC promised to provide the NYSC members with sleeping kits and all that they require. Part of our discussion with the Inspector-General of Police and the Department of State Services is that their places be taken into consideration in terms of security.

“The provision of security to their lodges and where they are accommodated is also factored in as part of the security of their lives and properties. So, we don’t expect them to go beyond the confines of the places”.
