The Director General of National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), Maj. Gen. Suleiman Kazaure, has warned corps members participating as INEC ad-hoc staff in the general election that they would be jailed if they break any electoral law in the course of their assignment.
He gave the warning Thursday in Yola while addressing corps members trained to participate in the exercise.
The Director General who was represented by Mr Sadiq Ipaku, Chief Inspector of NYSC, Abuja, said it was mandatory for corps members to know the Electoral Act and discharge their assignment in line with the law, and the training provided to avoid falling into trouble.
Kazaure said over the years, corps members have distinguished themselves during elections and should continue to do so.
“Your predecessors, right from year 2008 when the collaboration started, have proven their mettle and made each succeeding election more credible and acceptable than the proceeding one.
“It is against this background that the nation is once again calling on you for this very important assignment,” He added.
