NYSC pulls out of Rivers’ Saturday rerun

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), yesterday announced that the rerun elections into the House of Representatives and House of Assembly seats for Etche Local Government Area of Rivers State will hold on Saturday.

But, State Coordinator of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) Omotayo Adewoye said the youths would not be available for the exercise.
Adewoye said: “I am just one month old in this state. When I received the letter calling for 300 interested youth corps members to come up for training to participate in the conduct of the elections in Etche, being quiet aware of the Memorandum of Understanding between INEC and NYSC, and knowing that I was not a signatory to the agreement, I had the course to approach my national headquarters in Abuja.
