Why this petition matters

Started by Angalapu Dengiyefa

The Nigerian is presently characterised by insecurity in several states especially in the Northwest, Northeast, North Central and Southeast regions. This is has been predicted to be worse as the country prepares to conduct elections in 2023. 

Members of the National Youth Service Corp are usually the "foot soldiers" of INEC during elections in Nigeria and unfortunately, sometimes they pay the supreme price. During the 2011 elections, seven NYSC members were killed in Bauchi alone. Worse still, those responsible for taking the lives of these young stars are hardly punished.

It is best that the country either deals with the security issues it has or do not post any member of the NYSC to a volatile place to conduct elections.
