Ondo State office of the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) has enjoined corps members to avoid all forms of election malfeasance.

ICPC Resident Anti-Corruption Commissioner (RACC) in the State, who was represented by Mr Jenmi Ganiu, said this during a sensitization programme organized for the ICPC/NYSC CDS Group at the NYSC Zonal Office, Oda Road, Akure South Local Government, Ondo State.

He informed the corps members on the economic risks attached to election manipulation and emphasized that most of the challenges facing the economy were as a result of political and electoral corruption.

According to him, ICPC does not overlook any act of corruption, adding that anybody found involved in election manipulation will face the consequences.

The RACC therefore charged the corps members to immediately report any corrupt activity perceived during the election period to the Commission.

The NYSC State Coordinator, Mrs Ani Victoria Nnenna, who was represented by the Zonal Inspector, assured the Commission of NYSC’s maximum cooperation.

She advised the corps members that would be serving as election adhoc staff to be persons of integrity.

The President of Anti-Corruption CDS group, Mr Faleke Anu Olalekan in his remark promised that they would shun all election manipulation and corruption.
