- Members of the NYSC in Gombe state have received some mattresses ahead of the rescheduled general election
- The mattresses were distributed by the coordinator of NYSC in Gombe state, David Markson, to the corps members
- No fewer than 2,000 corps members on election duty in the 11 local government areas in the state received their mattresses
The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) in Gombe State on Friday, February 22, distributed mattresses to corps members deployed on election duty on Saturday, February 23, in the state.
The mattresses were distributed to no fewer than 2,000 corps members on election duty in the 11 local government areas in the state.
The coordinator of NYSC in the state, David Markson, who conducted the distribution of the item, said it was to cushion the sleeping problem earlier experienced by the corps members before the postponement last Saturday’s elections.
Markson said the distribution of the mattresses was directed by the director general of NYSC, Major General Suleiman Kazaure, to ensure that the corps members were comfortable.
He said that the local government Inspectors of the scheme would handle the distribution to INEC Registration Areas Centres (RACS) in each local government area.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the mattresses were collected from NYSC Orientation Camp, Amada, Akko local government area.

The group said the Nigerian troops are adequately prepared to deal with any form of violence that might erupt during and after the elections and will do so within the ambit of the law.
The executive director of the human rights group, Maxwell Gowon, said CCSGHRCM observed the threats of violence in the polity by paid political merchants desperate to turn the tide in favour of their paymasters.
