A corps member Khamis Musa, who was alleged to have contributed his monthly allowance for the purchase of the nomination form of the All Progressives Congress for Bola Tinubu, has denied the claims.
The Gombe state serving corps member with state code GM/22A/3185, had gone viral after a video was posted online where he said he would sacrifice his allowance in support of Tinubu’s emergence as Nigeria’s president.
Musa who has now denied the claims said he was expected to be non-partisan, and couldn’t have contributed the said amount. He added that he realized his earlier move contravened relevant NYSC act and by-laws.
“I wish to retract my earlier submission to sacrifice my allowance for Tinubu’s presidential aspiration on the grounds of my status as a corps member who is supposed to be non-partisan and apolitical based on the provision of the NYSC act and by-laws.”
“I wish to remain neutral in my conduct as a corps member during the service year and distance myself from partisan politics” .
It is, however, unclear why the corps member rescinded his earlier declaration.
