The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) in Gombe obviously did not like the images of corps members in deplorable situations which flooded the internet after the general elections were postponed on February 16.

On Friday, they distributed mattresses to Corps members deployed on election duty on Saturday 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, Mr 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, Maj.-Gen. 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 mattresses were collected from NYSC Orientation Camp, Amada, Akko Local Government Area.
