Personnel of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) have been warned against being partisan in their assignment in tomorrow's elections.
Commandant General of the Corps, Dr. Ade Abolurin gave the warning while speaking with top officers of the Corps in Abuja on Thursday ahead of deployment for Saturday's Gubernatorial and House of Assembly elections.He emphasised that any activity that could portray the Corps as engaging in partisan politics will not be accepted.
"As stakeholders in the Nigeria’s electoral process, the Corps is expected to re-double its effort and work hard to ensure a free and fair election."Abolurin said the peace and unity of Nigeria cannot be jettisoned under any guide, insisting that any personnel found wanting or suspected to be involved in electoral offences will be dealt with accordingly.
Meanwhile, the Corps said in addition to the earlier deployment made during the presidential election, it has deployed more thousands of its personnel for the Saturday’s gubernatorial and State House of Assembly election in 36 state of the federation.
The NSCDC also assured the nation of the deployment of 500 trained Sniffer dogs, 300 Operational vehicles, 100 Surveillance vehicles and Ambulances to further boost the security of the electorates, electoral official as well as sensitive and non-sensitive materials before, during and after the election.
