“Study your environment and be security conscious. When faced with obvious danger, secure yourself first.

“Do not enter vehicles belonging to politicians and strangers as the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) will provide all your needs.

“The participation of corps members in the election as ad hoc staff is not by compulsion, but a voluntary service to their fatherland,” he said.

He advised all corps members on election duty to appear in their uniforms with their identity cards, stating that such will help for easy identification.

“It is a rare privilege to have all the presiding officers from the NYSC,’ Ononamadu said.
