The Independent National Electoral Commission said it would engage the services of Nigerian Air Force, Navy and other security agencies for adequate security during general elections in 2015.
Mr Austin Okojie, the commission’s Resident Electoral Commissioner in Taraba, disclosed this while addressing Batch B corps members at NYSC Orientation Camp in Jalingo on Sunday, reports the News Agency of Nigeria.
Okojie explained that the move was necessary given the level of insecurity in the country.
“The commission is making arrangements with the Nigerian Air Force, Navy and other security agents to ensure safety of lives and property during the 2015 general elections.
“We expect Nigerians to understand that the engagement of security agents to maintain law and order is to enable us to conduct free, fair and acceptable elections’’, he said.
Okojie advised corpse members to be patriotic in the elections.
Mr Freeman Tumba, the State Coordinator of NYSC, commended the role of corpse members in the country’s electoral process so far.
He said corpse members were the best set of Nigerians to bring credibility to the nation’s electoral process
