Yakubu recalled that he promised to employ Oluwatobi when he visited the NYSC headquarters to condole with the Director-General, Brig. Gen Sule Kazaure on the death of Samuel Okonta, a youth corps member.

He said: “Today, we are fulfilling that promise. Oluwatobi has requested to be posted to Ogun State, and to Ogun State he has been posted.”

The INEC chairman urged NYSC to continue “to assist the commission with corps members especially during the forthcoming elections in Kogi, Ondo, Rivers and Edo states.”

Kazaure in his response thanked the INEC boss for the gesture, stressing the need for a review of the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between INEC and NYSC, in the areas of security, transportation, allowances and insurance cover for corp members.
