The decision was taken in a security meeting held in Benin, Edo State.
According to a source, the National Youth Service Corp (NYSC) refused to deployed Corps members.
He said, “There is no security to escort them simply because they are unavailable. The security agencies are going to formally communicate their security advise to us in a short while.
“We shall meet to take a decision. At the moment, it is no longer feasible to deploy and conduct the elections. NYSC has advised us that many parents have called to withdraw their children from election duty. Since they form the bulk of election duty personnel, their withdrawal is a major challenge.”
We shall bring you more details as we get them.
