The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) on Wednesday said no fewer than 17,000 corps members had been confirmed as adhoc staff for the forthcoming elections in Ogun.
The Ogun NYSC State Coordinator, Mrs Josephine Bakare, disclosed this while speaking with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abeokuta at a sensitisation programme for corps members.
Bakare also confirmed that each corps member participating in the election would receive a total of N35,000 as duty allowances for the Feb. 16 and March 2 elections.
She also assured corps members that adequate provision for welfare and accommodation had been made with the NYSC Local Government Inspectors which they could access.
Bakar, however, appealed to pregnant corps members to refrain from participating in the exercise for their safety and those of their unborn babies.
