Governor State of Osun, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola on Monday advised corps members in the state to resist being used by politicians for electoral malpractice in the Sept. 22 gubernatorial election.

Aregbesola gave the advice at the closing /terminal parade of the orientation course for the 2018 Batch B Stream II corps members, at the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) permanent orientation camp in Ede, Osun. Aregbesola advised them to be neutral and should not betray the trust reposed in them.

The governor, who was represented on the occasion by Mrs Folakemi Adegboyega, Commissioner for Employment and Youth Engagement, said it was necessary to continue to admonish the corps members, especially those who would be engaged as ad-hoc staff for the election.

“You all have been rightly informed during the swearing-in ceremony of your role in the forthcoming election in the state.

“Ensure to abide by the advice which came to you through seasoned officers of the scheme and its collaborating agencies, when you are called upon for participation in the election process in the course of your service year.

“Shun violence and corruption, ensure that the votes of every citizens at the polling units counts and do not allow yourselves to be used by anyone to perpetuate rigging during the process.

“Remember your family, the scheme, and the nation at large are looking up to you; and so, do not let the trust reposed in you by these people be at naught,” he said.
