Youth Corpers Snub Rivers Election Rerun – Read
Corps members are afraid of participating in the upcoming rivers elections rerun.
A source said: “Corps members being contacted by INEC to participate in the Rivers rerun election are showing reluctance to serve in the election,”
“A good number of them are afraid that there could be violence during the election, and these are young men and women who don’t want to get killed because of some election.”
However, the state REC, Mr. Aniedi Ikoiwak, said the job of corps members was voluntary, adding that those who did not want to work with INEC on election day were free to opt out.
“…if we have problem of shortage of manpower, we will complete them with workers from other government’s agencies and institutions,”
