The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) on Monday has said corps members need to be protected during the Edo governorship election, scheduled for Saturday.
The call was made by the Director-General, NYSC, Brigadier-Gen. Sule Kazaure during courtesy visits which he paid to various security agencies in Benin on Monday.
The NYSC boss visited 4 Mechanised Brigade, Police Headquarters and Department of State Services.
We are soliciting for cooperation to ensure the safety of our corps members. We need adequate security for our corps members who will be participating in the process before, during and after the election,” he said.
Brigadier-Gen. Benbella Raji of the 4 Mechanised Brigade assured the NYSC Director General of adequate protection for the corps members.
“Their safety is paramount to us and we are working very closely with other security outfits to ensure the safety of everyone and peaceful environment during the election,” Raji said.
