INEC reiterates promise of automatic employment for distinguished NYSC ad-hoc staff
“I want to appreciate all
@officialnyscng here and those not here. Presently, we are conducting the 2019 Election Review and we promise to reward some corp members with excellent performance in the elections with automatic employment,” Yakubu said.
He said those who will participate in the Bayelsa and Kogi governorship elections in November 2019 will get the same reward.
The event featured the presentation of laptops and phones used by the European Election Observation Mission to 75 corps members who were selected by a panel of NYSC and EU delegation.
The INEC had earlier in February promised automatic employment to members of the NYSC who“do exceptionally well” during elections as INEC supporting staff.
The NYSC had charged the INEC to commit to the welfare and security of corps members that will be working as ad-hoc staff during the general elections, following several reports of unpleasant experiences endured by corps members across the country in the run-up to the postponed elections.
Also, President Muhammadu Buhari had on April 19, presented awards to 168 ex-corps members at the combined 2015/2016/2017 President’s NYSC Honours Award held at the State House Banquet Hall, Abuja.
Buhari had also announced automatic employment to the awardees in the Federal Civil Service and scholarships up to doctorate level in any Nigerian universities.
