MRS Theresa Arokoyo, Coordinator of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) in Niger, has urged security agencies to synergise for peaceful elections in the state.
She made the call during a dialogue session on “Peace and Violent-Free 2019 General Elections’’, organised by the National Orientation Agency (NOA) in Minna on Monday.
Arokoyo, who was represented by Mrs Mary Eghieye, Assistant Director, Corps Inspection and Monitoring in Niger, called for cooperation of stakeholders and the general public to shun violence during and after the elections.
She noted that peaceful and violence-free elections would enable corps members to discharge their duties freely.
Arokoyo appealed to security agencies to make adequate provisions of security for corps members at various polling centres and urged corps members to be non-partisan during the exercise.
Earlier, Alhaji Aliyu Mohammed, the Director of NOA in Niger, called on the general public to shun acts capable of disrupting the conduct of elections in the state.
